Circled by foe, and compassed about,
The leading masses so tossed with doubt. To bring the rest to shame of war, with whom our stand, they do abhor. Engulfed in thought, and intent of heart, does leave us both a world apart. So given to fear and lie so taught, do give their lives in exchange for naught.
I see you are a recent arrival at Faithwriters. How blessed we are to have the privilege of reading the depth of your thoughts brother Steadman. I do so look forward to more as the Lord blesses you to reveal his treasures of comfort, hope and peace and even that which might be unsettling. For it helps to have our own unsettling touched by another's. Blessings.
