Long is the way, and very steep the slope,

Strengthen me once again, O God of Hope.

Far, very far, the summit doth appear;

But Thou art near my God, but Thou art near.

And Thou wilt give me with my daily food,

Powers of endurance, courage, fortitude.

The way is perfect;  only let that way

Be clear before my feet from day to day.

Thou art my Portion, saith my soul to Thee,

O what a Portion is my God to me. (Amy Carmichael)

Psalm 16:5-6  “Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup;  you have made my lot secure.  The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.”IMG_4322


A Poem by Amy Carmichael




A great wind blowing, raging sea,

And rowers toiling wearily

Far from the land, where they would be.


And then, One coming, drawing nigh;

They care not, now, for starless sky.

The Light of life says, “It is I”.


They care not, now, for toil of oar,

For lo, the ship is near the shore,

And their Beloved they adore.


Lord of the Lake of Galilee

who long ago, walked on the sea,

My heart is comforted in Thee.

A love line to God this morning..


I wish

my pen

were the tongue

of a skilful


to applaud
