Gate of the year

As you tread on the gate of the year 2020, I wanted to leave with you a poem written by Minnie Louise Haskins. I read this first in the devotional by Mrs Charles Cowman. I always liked these words, the first five lines of a longer poem. May our loving Master be the light to guide you safely through the new year.

THE GATE OF THE YEAR

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”
And he replied:
“Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”

Happy new year and may God bless you.
