In a desert land He found her,

In a barren and howling waste.

He shielded her and cared for her;

He guarded her as the apple of His eye,

like an eagle that stirs up its nest

and hovers over its young,

that spreads its wings to catch them

and carries them aloft.

The Lord alone led her;

no foreign god was with her.

He made her ride on the heights of the land

and fed her with the fruit of the fields.

He nourished her with honey from the Rock,

and with oil from the flinty crag…

Deuteronomy 32:10-13 NIV

I’m an evangelical Christian who ascribes to the Apostle’s Creed for a formal statement of faith. I believe the above passage most  fully describes me, though.
