The breadth of Heaven’s reach

A life in Christ is
           an invitation
to live according to a different rhythm.

It stimulates the courage to
           move forward
even when the path seems to crumble
beneath our feet, when every way forward
                       is shrouded in threat.

The Love of Christ is that embrace which
           untangles the anxious heart
           and calms the fretful hand
where fears are overruled by confidence and
           trembling is tempered
with pardon and permission.

It is the still, deep stream amid
Every tempest that knows
           nothing, nothing,
can separate us from the
           length and breadth
                 of Heaven’s reach.
