The Shepherd's Stable

Fear will hold us back from the precipice,
If we allow it.
Faith will free us to follow Jesus past it,
If we accept it.

As I age
I sometimes wonder
If I'll go gently into that good night,
Or kicking and screaming with all
     my might?
As I grow in wisdom
I have come to realize
For peace in passing I am not able,
But because of the holy power inside,
From death and eternity I will not hide,
And I will follow Jesus
     through the narrow gate
          into the Shepherd's stable.

Hebrews 11:1-3
