The Icy Road
onto the ice
unless the spirit
outweighs your fear
of skidding off the road.
Bundle up your own dreams
and go out into
but remember when
your own hearth is burning.
The spiritual forces that created
and sustain the whole universe are
available to help you at any time...
Have you ever seen a huge hoist in
action at the docks? You know what
happens. The operator would not dream
of trying to pull up that load with his
muscles. He would damage himself seriously
and make no impression on the task at hand.
What he does is to gently throw a small
switch - and leave it on. Then the electric
power raises the load to any height required.
When you work spiritually you are applying
Infinite Power to your problem, and there
can be only one outcome - victory.
Great in counsel and mighty in work:
for thine eyes are open upon all
the ways of men.
The Holy Bible
King James Version
Excerpted from "Around the Year with Emmet Fox"
Success signals God's love no more
than struggles indicate the lack of
it. The definitive, God-sanctioned
gauge is not a good day or a bad
break but the dying hours of his
Son. Consider them often. Let the
gap between trips to the cross
diminish daily. Discover what
Brainherd meant when he said,
"My heart was swallowed up in
God most of the day." Accept
this invitation of Jesus:
"Abide in my love."
(John 15:9 NASB)
...For that reason, abide
in him. Hang on
to Christ the
same way a branch clutches the vine.

They change their sky, not their soul,
who run across the sea.
Horace (65 BC-8 BC)
Leading Roman lyric poet
during the time of Augustus
Love the Lord, o my soul ...
A well without water,
a cow without milk,
a shrine in the darkness -
so are you without him,
o my soul.
Guru Nanak (1469-1539)
Mystic and founder of the Sikh tradition
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be scorched,
Nor will the flame burn you.
For I am the Lord your God.
Isaiah 43: 3
And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-
nego, fell bound into the fiery, burning furnace.
Then King Nebuchadnezzar, bewildered, stood up
in haste. "Did we not throw three bound men into
the fire?" They replied and said to the king, "True,
O King!" He exclaimed and said, "Behold, I see four
unbound men walking in the fire, and there is no
wound on them; and the appearance of the fourth
(one) is like an angel's."
Thereupon Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego
stepped out of the fire. The satraps, the nobles,
the governors and the ministers of the king saw
these men over whose bodies the fire had no
effect, the hair of whose heads was not singed,
whose cloaks were unaltered and who had not
absorbed the smell of fire.
Daniel 3: 23-27

And now, the Last Word:
Do not fear to take chances.
When it is making headway,
a boat may rock.
If a man wishes to be sure of the road
he treads on, he must close hiss eyes
and walk in the dark.
St. John of the Cross
