Happy New Year

I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year
‘Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.’
And he replied, ‘Go  into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God
For that shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way!’
So I went forth and finding the Hand of God
Trod gladly into the night
He led me towards the hills
And the breaking of day in the lone east.
So heart be still!
What need our human life to know
If God hath comprehension?
In all the dizzy strife of things
Both high and low,
God hideth his intention.”



I post this poem again for another year. Its message still holds .

  1. Its always exciting stepping out into the darkness with your hand in His- For He knows the plans He has for us,plans to prosper us and not harm us,plans to give us a future and a hope.
