In Fathers Embrace

In Fathers Embrace

by Joan Ray

From within the embrace of our loving father
     All is bearable.
          There is peace that passes understanding.
               There is strength that endures no matter what.
                    There is all that we need for whatever is going on.

Enter into his embrace.
     It is freely given.
It is from within a place of freedom you enter,
     But also there is a freedom that comes when you do so.
          Freedom from the world,
               From sin,
                    From the assault of the enemy,
               Refuge,
          Safety.
He is our safe harbor.
     When we enter there the storms still rage.
          But we are safe,
               Sheltered,
                    Protected,
               And most of all
                    Loved/beloved.
