Lockdown - Poem by Ann Silvester


Locked down but never locked out.

Circumstances may have us in lock down, 

But we are never locked out of God's presence.

There is never a lock down in Heaven.

God's Kingdom is always open for business.


God is not social distancing from His children;

He is walking beside us and holding our hand.

The power of God's anointing

Is not halted or made ineffective by a virus.

There are no barriers to where our prayers go,

No restricted areas to the Holy Spirit.


We are not set aside, but being prepared.

We are not boxed in, but set apart by God. 

This is a time of incubation, not isolation...
