She has a serious life-threatening disease. He has lost his job. They are arranging the funeral of a dear family member. We never know what is ahead. Recently I read the following – “I pulled my blanket tighter around my shoulders and snuggled in the warmth of my family, my job, my education, my good health, my financial security. But …the cold of the future pierced my cover and I shivered.. Is that you ? If so, please listen to that same person a little later. “Suddenly my blanket was ripped from my grasp and I stood exposed in all my fears. Then I looked up to Him….. He said, ‘Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives… Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” “I was warm.” Afraid of the future? Gene MacLellan’s song advises, “put your hand in the hand of the Man who stilled the water. That Man is Jesus, the God Man – He holds our future in His hands.
