For those of us that have had this kind of a week:
And our Bibles look like this from wear and tear:
Take heart because the dawn of a new day is coming
sooner than we think:
Pressed out of measure and pressed to all length:
Pressed so intensely it seems, beyond strength;
Pressed in the body and pressed in the soul,
Pressed into knowing no helper but God:
Pressed into loving the staff and the rod.
Pressed into living a life in the Lord,
Pressed into loving a Christ-life outpoured.
