Faith Boosters by Jenny Garvin


“Think not, thou canst sigh a sigh,
And thy Maker is not by.
Think not, thou canst weep a tear
And thy Maker is not near.”
On Another’s Sorrow – William Blake
“The people who walked in darkness, have seen a great light. They lived in a land of shadows, but now light is shining on them… You have given them great joy Lord… a Child is born to us!” Isa. 9:2 & 3 & 6

We may have a great life yet anxieties and needs created by past deficits and bruises regularly lie close to the surface. As I look at old photos I recognize that my emotional world often niggled underneath what looked like wonderful moments. Why wasn’t I one hundred per cent present? So often there was a shadow that clouded my view of what were real and present delights.

I am now so thankful for the toughest phases of my life. Eventually they propelled me into the arms of the One who set me free from shadows, Comforted by his presence and his love I’ve learned to live one day at a timetrusting the outcomes to him. In my Creator my heart has found its true home!
