Witness

What we do is a greater witness that what we say, but who we are is the greatest witness of all.

IF

God's promises are filled with IF's:
IF you repent, IF you believe, IF you receive,
IF you hearken and obey.
IF is only two letters, but it is the hinge to the door.
God has done his part,
IF only we would do ours.

Came to the Visible

We came to the visible to find the invisible,
Into flesh to find spirit.
We were born that we may die;
And we die that we may live.

Darkness of Love

One day I awoke and could not see
On that day came upon me clarity.
The shadow of love came over me
And blinded my eyes to injury.
In the darkness, I could not distinguish your fault,
So in my heart, I held no aught.
In the darkness, no enemy could be found,
So I rested with friendship all around.
I hold to the darkness of love with all my might,
For in it I have discovered the light.

(reprinted from I Do, by Doris Trueheart)

Love Makes the Difference

It's not that he won't hurt you;
It's that you will suffer long.
It's not that he won't hurt you;
It's that you won't seek your own.
It's not that he won't hurt you;
It's that you're not easy to provoke.
It's not that he won't hurt you;
It's that you won't break the yoke.
It's not that he won't hurt you;
It's that you will bear the pain.
It's not that he won't hurt you,
It's that you'll endure the rain and gale
All because your love won't fail.
