Acts 9:25 “But his followers took him [Saul] by night and lowered him in a basket through an opening in the wall.” (NIV)*
My, how things have changed.
There you are
dropping to the ground,
dangling in a mercy basket–
spared by those you once persecuted.
One encounter with Light,
and you’re no longer the same.
God’s chosen instrument,
blinded so you could see, now–
a world changing escapee.
