  1. David's Flight


    ~ ~ ~ ~

    Do not expect a smooth and easy path!

    (Arthur Pink, "David's Flight")
    Prosperity is often a mixed blessing, and adversity is far from being an unmixed calamity!

    Sometimes non-christians will ask me "why" do I believe in God. It's so hard for me to answer someone that has already made up their mind there is no God.

  5. The Prophet


    The Prophet
    I saw an old man walking
    His head was bowed and gray,
    His staff held by a gnarled old hand
    And then I heard him pray:

    "Oh Lord, please do forgive our sins
    Though they're as black as coal;
    You are a God of mercy,

    We are full of deceit and wayward;
    Unfaithful and untrue -
