Shaped to Lead Us

A pale shoot
     out of a dead stump grows,
A sign that life
     is more than mere man knows.
There is a Spirit
     like the wind we cannot see;
There is a reality
     beyond the thing we call a tree.
That shoot of promise
     did grow from stem to rod,
Shaped to lead us
     made by the hand of God.

Isaiah 11:1-2
