Under the fig tree


fig tree

I thought I was hidden

Under the fig tree.

Shaded

By branches,

But not hidden from

Your Eyes.

You saw me there,

And You called me

To “follow”.

When my friend

Came and told me,

You were

The One,

The One who knew me,

Even before I saw You,

Heard Your Voice,

Felt Your Peace,

I ran to You

So fast,

I left my shoes,

Under the fig tree.

 

Based on John 1:48

    Beautiful. Being called to a higher purpose than our own comfort.
