Our Own Red Seas - Poem by Qiniso Mogale

Like the children of Israel
We each have our own Red Seas
We each have our troubles
There are times when we are facing
death in the face
At that time we feel it is our end
We feel we are done for
At that time we desperately need a Savior
At that time we need Jesus Christ.

We each have our own Red seas
We need the waters to part so that we pass
through on dry land
We need to pass through to the other side
We need the troubles to be drowned in our
red seas after we have passed through
It is only divine intervention that opens up our
Red seas and allow us to pass through
It is Christ who intervenes in our Red Seas.

Divine intervention makes us realize that our
Red Seas are not our end
Divine intervention makes us realize that our
troubles have solutions in Christ
Divine intervention helps us realize that our enemies are taken care of by God's grace
Our Red Seas are not our demise.

    Qiniso, while I really don't like poems that preach religion or Bible-thumping in general, your metaphor of the Red Sea is pretty effective. I'm a dedicated agnostic and will remain so until Whoever is in charge gives me a sign.
