In the midst of the ongoing fear and doubt of imminent calamity that hangs above us like 'the sword of Damocles', my thoughts wander off to a past unknown…
what would I have done if my brother's sacrifice was accepted;
or would I have found refuge in the ark where only eight "fools" chose to be;
or where would I have been when Daniel and his friends were cast into the fiery furnace, would I be kneeling face down in the dust at Nebuchadnezzar’s idol,
would I have been in the lion’s den with Daniel for having dared to pray to the one true God… even when it was totally “illogical” to do so.
Even if I were to be "disliked" by all my friends and family would I sit with Job in the ashes and not even for once grumble at God.
Would I have shouted the words “Crucify, crucify” along with the mob, just because “everybody else is doing it”.
Or would I have been with the 'religious righteous' of the time, stoning Stephen.
Would I have been the aristocrat shoving off “common folk” from entering the life-boats on the Titanic,
or would I be the old man holding on to his wife’s hand in calm assurance smiling in the midst of freezing waters saying with all my first-love and calm, “till death do us part”.
Would I be the foolish violinist who would linger on to play, “Nearer my God to Thee” as death came knocking at my door,
or would I be the fanatic evangelist who would cling to the railing hoping to snatch a few more souls into His kingdom as I shout above the roar of the sea, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall no be in want…”

As for any calamity that may beset me, I will press on to change that which I am called to do. Whether it be with hands and fingers that pain or in future a body that cannot press on, I will be at cheerful peace…

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all FEAR is gone,
Because I know, YES I KNOW
HE holds my future
And life is worth the living just because HE LIVES!!
