What’s so amazing it’s downright absurd?

It’s truth and wisdom hemmed within God’s word.

A source of hope for trials of today,

It offers light in dark and paves the way.

As true today as when it was first penned,

Not to condemn but a way to transcend.

The steady rock on which I proudly stand,

The double-edged sword firm within my hand.

It’s pages filled with grace and bound by love,

A testimony of God’s strength above.

Verse Of The Week:

In lieu of the customary verse, this week I thought I would share a quote I came across while reading Black Beauty by Anna Sewell that seems to transcend a literary work of fiction and speak to an issue of heart. It’s a powerful thought to consider in light of today’s global atmosphere:

“There is no religion without love, and people may talk as much as they like about their religion, but if it does not teach them to be good and kind to man and beast, it is all a sham – all a sham, James, and it won’t stand when things come to be turned inside out and put down for what they are.”

What I’m Reading:
