IN MY FACE

I have written about the pinpricks of  martydom, daily living, but a few days ago, I experienced 
more..than a prick. It was a deep gash, a life changing one.  Not to be overdramatic, but was a situation beyond everyday drama - even trauma. 


I need urgent heartfelt prayers from any readers. I cannot give details, I rarely do, but I am trusting anyone that has read any of my posts for kind prayers of hope. 




God has promised a victory, but in the battlefield, there are some very scary moments.  This is one of them.





                                      Jacob's Ladder



At times of trouble
When, in-my-face, is hellish rubble


There is a place I know, beyond defeat
Where I must go to touch His feet


The full and radiant beauty there
Cannot compare


To the hollow, smoking glow
That hovers over a darkened soul


In this place, I beg for light
Til suddenly, a spark...Saving Flame, ignite!


Brandishing from high His fiery claim:
This child is mine. For him, I came!

Soldier of Love, I trust your Name.

Aren't we so blessed, that we have such an AWESOME God we can turn to? I don't even know how people get by life's ups and downs- let alone catastrophes- without Him. The battle belongs to the Lord....we are praying.
