"If We Evermind" Whether it be two roads Or a sea to travel Uncharted, we have no reason To fear or need to quake Because He has not left us Empty or weak, but rich with truth. And if we heed, we will not be blind; If indeed we harken - if we evermind. When comes a day that darkness shrouds Or plenty falls away to famine, We need not say that we’re abandoned For all the way He stands, and patiently, Tenderly He waits for us to follow The pin-prick daylight He spreads Before our feet. May we trusting walk the line Betwixt the dangers on either side. May we evermind. The same on morning splendor, When feasting on goodness fattens Our minds, and lazing softens our faith, May we trusting turn our glass And reckon Him. Not mistaking the blessing From His hand for working of our own, We praising stand and thank in kind For gifting us with life and truth to evermind. There is no trace of human wisdom to compare With a single phrase of His light. He stands Above and sways the nations, He speaks and worlds obey His smallest whim. He willingly explains in words so clear – So humanly plain – that we can meet each challenge. We can trust His way and tread sublime For He creates the truth that we must evermind. And when we keep His words before our eye And turn our feet toward His Book, His perfect wisdom metes to us in measure Exactly what we need. There is no want, But always greets us on the morn Bounteous mercy and grace and direction Perfect to speed us toward His chosen time; If we follow, if we listen, learn, and evermind. -AMBrewster-

You’re a parent.
Nine months of new experiences, discomfort, pain, and joy ushered you into the shimmering sphere of parenthood.
Since then, depending on how old your children are, you’ve experienced twenty strollers full of new difficulties, learning experiences, hardships, and happiness.
Whether you chose to educate your children formally or not, you’ve inevitably distilled and instilled more life lessons into them than potentially any other human being ever will.
And for this cause, parents like you have been celebrated in literature, video, blogs, memes, tweets, vines, and graffiti.
And yet, the question must be asked – what qualified you to be a parent?
On the road to Damascus he met the resurrected Savior of the world.
His life changed for eternity.
But he had a thorn.
Don’t abandon me yet – this post has nothing to do with Paul’s thorn. But it has everything to do with the reality your faith. Continue reading “Is Your Faith a Fairy Tale?”
