Never has it been so dark,
Rarely has it been so drear,
Hanging o’er my head an axe
Causing me such dreadful fears.

Eerie sounds of unknown source;
Swirling mists with lingering chill,
Self the cloak I huddle in
Feeling wretched, lost and ill.

Far away a cheery glow
Like a halo soft and bright
Beckons me to venture near
Creeping through the starless night.

The lamp of faith is offered me
Revealing then, a face so kind
Dispelling soon the fear of night
Comfort, now, in Christ I find. 

When hand in hand I walk with Him
The axe-head always disappears
I’ll gladly trust my faithful Guide:
He gives me courage, hope and cheer.

Shake Hands With God

Since my rolicking  manner of writing may well detract, rather than improve this thought-provoking kernel of truth, I will share it with you just the way Robin Penner wrote it. 

I think one of the most beautiful things about our commitment to God, is His response to this commitment. His keeping power is infinite, and should our commitment waver, He will not let us go. He will do everything in His power to bring us back to a full commitment to Him. I have witnessed this personally a number of times and also in the lives of many others.Every time it is a touching witness of God's tender love for me, and all of us. 

Let us all be encouraged as God calls us to commitment, and not fear or shy away. Rather, let us entrust our lives to Him, knowing "that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28
I'd like to introduce you to an inspiring book that will help you get more acquainted with God, and His Son Jesus.

Really, Really Peaceful

Have you found that it is possible to be calm in your soul in spite of great difficulties? If not, turn to Jesus and cast your troubles on Him. He is far more capable of carrying them than we are anyway. Just snuggle in His arms and trust!

Trusting Your Son

     Remember the story in the Bible about the wedding where Mary, so calmly, so matter-of-factly, told her Son that they had no wine? Hey, if you were at a wedding as a mere wedding guest, would you march up to your son and announce that they were out of wine? Seems to me, if you did, he would give you a quizzical look and say, “What’s that to me, Mom? That’s not my problem.” I mean, really, Jesus hadn’t done any miracles yet, so what was she expecting of him, anyways?

   I got to thinking about that lately, and let me paint you a word picture of what might have preceded those words. See that little tyke manfully struggling with a pail of goat’s milk that’s nearly scrapping the ground?

“I’m helping you, Mama,” Jesus announced gleefully, heedless of all the milk sloshing out of the pail and on to his tunic.
