Supply came long before demand

When God made His green earth

He carved out supply

Long before any need

Was ever felt.

The habitat of Eden was fashioned

Long before its inhabitants were

Formed from its dust,

The sun burned brightly

Long before there were any

Humans to celebrate its rising

Or marvel at its setting.

Long before we learned to swim

The shores foamed and gurgled

Like children giggling

At cosmic humour.

The story of life on this earth

Extends beyond the realities

Of needs simply being met,

But rather our needs have been



Part of the plan.

We sometimes imagine

That we’ve always been fighting to be seen

That maybe if we did all the right things

Our needs would be met,

But maybe there’s more to the story,

Maybe, despite our sense of abandonment

Our sense of having to prove ourselves,

He’s had an eye

On us and on our needs

All along.

You alone are the Lord.You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them, And the heavenly host bows down before You.

⁃ Nehemiah 9:6
