A Gift for a friend


I have a friend who is having a bad time at the moment, unfortunately there is nothing I can do to help other than listen to the problems and be there for her. However I decided to make this for her to hang in her craft area, so that she can see it when she is working and hopefully it will remind her that she is loved and that help is there for her.

I have posted the verse below the picture if anyone wants to know what it says.

In the centre of the flame
There is a hollow place
And nothing can burn
In this sheltered space.
For the fire builds a wall
Scientific fact claims
And insures a safe area
In the midst of the flames.
And in the hurricane’s fury
There’s a centre of peace
Where the winds of destruction
Suddenly cease.
And this same truth prevails
In life’s tribulations
There’s an island of calm
In the soul’s meditations:
A place that is quiet
Where we’re shielded from harms
Secure in the haven
Of a kinds Father’s arms,
Where the hot flames of anger
Have no power to sear,
And the high winds of hatred
And violence and fear,
Lose all the wrath
As their savage course,
Is softly subdued
As faith weakens force.
So when the fires of life
Burn deep in your heart,
And the winds of destruction
Seem to tear you apart,
Remember God loves you
And want to protect you,
So seek a small haven
And be guided by prayer
To the place of protection
Within God’s loving care.
