Under Construction

We decided that it’s time for The Scribe to get a face lift. So we’re taking the time to change the theme, organize the blog better, and invite more people into the process. So please be patient with us as we work on this site, and if you have any ideas or feedback please let us know!

Have a great day!

One Cloud Blotted Out the Sky

life doesn’t always follow our plan,

and when it doesn’t we lose

it. we scramble around looking high and low

because our world is coming to its end.

one cloud blots out the sky.


we question the heavens,

look to ourselves and what is found?

despair that drives us mad

and to the point of disrepair.

one cloud blots out the sky.


if we truly had faith,

and trusted in His word, would we

become so easily entangled?

would we say He isn’t there? would

one cloud blot out the sky?


one event does not remove

infinite faithfulness; one event

cannot undo. the love that has rescued

my soul, my all. and shown me

the sky anew, and its whole.


tf John 16:33
