Two Poems by JD DeHart: "Promise" and "Rock"

February 23, 2018









I can’t promise you

that where you go will

be easy


that there will be a comfortable

chair, kind people, or a system

that works


what I can promise, because

it has already been promised, the promise

not being mine but the Father’s


is that where you go the Kingdom

of God will be – this is the strange mystery

of the indwelling


that heaven is in the everyday present,

and we are all invited to be a part.






Scripture says,” Lead

me to the rock that is higher

than I am.”

Be it so.


Do not allow my

own tethers and the prison

of my own design to capture



I am no creature to be netted,

preferring the role of the eagle.

Rising above.
