Of Hearts, Unknowns and Faith...





I know Whom I believe
I know that He is able
To guard the Unknown seeping through
Dawn’s faint and far-east gable

I know Whom I believe
Beneath life’s great Unknown
He cups His hands in faithful keep
And fills dark night with dawn

I know Whom I believe
Keeper of field and heart
Cradles in ceaseless vigilance
Unknowns unformed rampart
 
I know Whom I believe
Each fear and doubt I place
Into His promises and then
Press onward by His grace

My Dad, who has known little sickness in this life found out the other day that he will need heart-bypass surgery.( initially they assured him they should be able to avoid this) He suffered a heart-attack two days after we celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in September, but we are thankful that this warning made us aware of his heart-condition. This down-time is testing the patience of a man who thrived on keeping busy, but being a man of deep faith I know that He knows Whom he believes and Knows that He is able…so his ‘heart-condition’ is okay in the Hands of the Keeper.

 For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day. 2 Tim.1:12
