Wednesday Riff: Wild Animals

Wild animals were there, but angels came and helped him.
Where are the wild animals?
Where are the angels?
In your today and your tomorrow.
The fearful things and the hopeful things,
The monsters and the kindness,
The put-downs and the encouragements.
They say it takes many angels to lift us,
Yet only one wild animal to bring us down.
Many encouragements to put a spring in our step,
Yet a single sneer can trip us up.
The days will surely hold the wild animals
And the angels.
We trek our own deserts,
Walk those wildernesses,
And in this life there is clearly trouble.
But the desert Son has overcome.
And knows what it is like to face
Wild animals and angels.
And He is not afraid.

Mark 1 v 13
