Thankful (Duodora)

I’m so thankful
The list of Hebrews Eleven
Includes Gideon,
Ignoring all his
Wooly, dewy doubts,
The hushed chopping down of Asherah poles,
But points our gaze instead to active faith.

I’m so thankful
Though Gideon I am
He is still faithful
He is still the same
He still accepts all
My stumbling, faltering, and failing faith
Gives me His righteousness and takes my place.
