"LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED..."

"Let not your heart be troubled..."
Is what John 14:1 says...
It's nineteen years since I first read these Words,
They've Strengthened me through many dark days!

They've been A Guiding Light for my feet,
In so many varied ways.
The Hope they've brought is constant,
As I walked through what often SEEMS like an endless maze!

Yet... always they beckon me,
To look into Your Beautiful Face.
No matter what the situation...
When I do that... I walk in Your Grace!

So... what do these Words mean to me?
Words so simple - yet so deep!
They mean the very Breath of Life to me,
They've Shown me that Your Word You Keep!

There's nothing that can defeat me,
When I keep my eyes fixed on YOU!
Death of Hope... death of dreams... death of loved ones...
You've Brought me through!

Death stalks every one of us,
From the moment we are born.
Death can walk in a living body,
As it exists alone and forlorn!

It can happen to anyone of us,
For a million reasons it SEEMS.
Something happens in a life to crush its spirit...
So... it lets go of life... and lets go of dreams!

'Four walls do not a prison make...'
Wise words ringing oh so true!
A mind chained, and bound, by fears of any sort,
Is a 'high security prison' if the person's spirit doesn't know YOU!

So what have these Words taught me
Nineteen years on?
That I can TRUST my Heavenly Daddy, The Holy Spirit -
And most of all YOU, my Dearest Jesus - God's Wonderful Son!!!
