in the land of the enemy who conquered them
thank you, God, that even in the midst of difficulty, right in the land of defeat, in the middle of the deepest struggle - we can call out to you, we can cry out to you, we are still connected to you! we always have you to turn to, we always have you to believe in, to hold on to, be secure in, be sure of - you are truly the one thing that remains faithful no matter what. praise you, God!
