Lighthouse...



Know therefore that the Lord your God is God;
he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations
of those who love him and keep his commandments.
Deut.7:9


Inept, the cold hard comfort of things pressed against our skin
Where flesh and blood appointments test the walls of worlds within
Time’s atrium of common care, of choice and consequence
Would be too much for man to bear but for Hope’s confidence
As strife runs rife and tests faith with its rival; fear and doubt
While life is but the wherewithal to who life is about

And all we have to lean on is the Word of God, my love
But if we humbly trust His Truth His Word will be enough
…to carry us from here to where there is no grief or pain
Beyond the cold, hard comfort of Things that cannot sustain
Where darkness would obliterate save for a Light within
God’s promises to navigate the way that leads to Him
