David with his Lord

David with his Lord

Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.”
1 Samuel 17:37

If I lost,
I would have lost with the Lord.
If I was afraid,
I would have been afraid with the Lord.
If the giant intimidated me,
the Lord would have been with me.
If I missed with the first stone, the Lord would have helped me aim the others.
Had I let the armor bearer dress me—had I worn the king’s coat of mail, the Lord would still have given me strength.

But I didn’t lose with my Lord.

With my Lord:
I won.
I was not afraid,
Or intimidated.
My first shot stuck down the giant,
and as I stood above the pile of his body,
my boy-sized shadow blotted the sun from him.
With my Lord, I lifted the sword,
and brought the head of his defier to Jerusalem!
