Beloved Prodigal

Preserved in the Wilderness

Blazing sun  
Glaring sand  
Baking heat  
The Wilderness prevailed.

Burning pain  
Stumbling gait  
Weary heart  
The Wilderness consumed.

Wandering warriors  
Hiding caves  
David’s men  
The Wilderness protected.

I am so excited to share with you the new website

being led by my dear friend, Anna Smit.  About a year ago, Anna and I began emailing and praying with each other. The Lord has led us to work and write together on a few projects over that time. And today, I am so thrilled at the way that He has opened the door for her to walk into the vision he planted within her to see His Beloved Prodigals loved and restored.

Have you felt the crushing weight of praying for and loving a prodigal of your own?

Then I would encourage you to visit this new website, a safe haven for prayers and encouragement. 

At one time or another, we each have been prodigals on a journey to return to our Precious Savior.

I feel so blessed to be a contributing writer with Anna,
calling us all to love our prodigals back to Jesus.

I am linking today with:


  1. I love your poem, Bettie. I read it earlier at Beloved Prodigal. So you will also be writing there from time to time? May God bless you all and give you His strength, grace, and wisdom! Love and hugs!

    1. Dear Trudy,
      I appreciate your prayers and kindness so much! Yes, I will be writing with Anna, now & then, as God joins our words together. Isn't His love for us so great? He finds such amazing ways to show us how His Love connects us all, in person, and even online! Love and Hugs to you too! xoxo
