Abraham #NaPoWriMoDayNineteen

Called by God
"Leave your home
Trust me"

          Trouble trusting
          "Where to go?
           I'm afraid"

Promised land
Canaan has it all
"I promise you"

           No heirs
           Sarah bears no child
           "What's gone wrong?"

Stop doubting
Your life will be fruitful
Wisdom develops

           Father of Israel
           Life everlasting
           Faith, love, trust

The story of Abraham caught in a wonderful series of haiku. I bow my head in grateful thank.

I hope I would have responded as Abram did, but I have my doubts.
