A TEST OF FAITH

A TEST OF FAITH

The land was struck by a tremendous flood. Everyone escaped to higher ground, but a Minister found himself stuck on the roof of his house. A man in a boat came by and said, “Come on, Father, get in my boat and I’ll row you to safety.” “Oh, no thank you. God will save me!” said the Minister. Next, a helicopter flew overhead and a rope ladder was lowered. “Climb up, and we’ll fly you to safety.” Again, the Minister declined: “No thanks. God will save me!”

Eventually, the waters rose above the roof of the Minister’s house and he drowned. When he arrived in heaven he sought an audience with God and complained,”Why didn’t you save me?” God replied, “I sent a boat and a helicopter … What more did you want?

RELIANCE

RELIANCE

Seeking for guidance
Found a voice not an echo
A good place to start

LIMBO

LIMBO

Betrayal slays us
Regaining trust is scary
Time is all we have

LEARNING

LEARNING

In time we shall see
Whether our trust is well placed
Meanwhile we observe

I BELIEVE

I BELIEVE

I believe
Through my experience

Though my perception
Of that experience

Is in itself no more
In the final end

Than my faith
That my perception

Of my experience
Is worthy of trust

EVER FAITHFUL, EVER SURE

EVER FAITHFUL, EVER SURE

Clouds dim the day, with dusk
We’re turned away from light.
Clouds disperse, night brings dawn.
Behold! The light’s still here.

TRUST

TRUST

You find you can’t trust
Who is it that is afraid?
Go seek them out

PAIN

PAIN

“Why is it so hard for some to show and others to see?”

Perhaps it is the fear of pain.

It is widely believed that the opposite of love is hatred, but closer examination reveals that the true opposite of Love is Fear; hatred always has its roots in Fear.

Fear makes us close up and deny; Love invites us to open and share.

Perhaps it is only when we readmit Love that the healing of the pain can begin.

OUTER PROSPERITY, INNER PEACE

OUTER PROSPERITY, INNER PEACE

Three words: Acceptance –

A new way to live

UPHEAVAL

Look, learn, laugh
React, reflect, relax

Time will pass
Without needing
A push from you

Look, learn, laugh
React, reflect, relax

And in time
You’ll see – All the rest
Will fall into place
