Faith Filled Friday: The Anvil and the Word of God

July 10, 2020

by Connie Terpack

The Word of God has been around for centuries. There are some who do not believe in God and then there are those of us who can not imagine a life without Him. The many attempts to destroy Christianity have failed. I am so thankful that I got a chance to hear about Jesus and His saving grace.

“For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” Psalms 119:89

The Blacksmith’s Anvil
Author unknown

Last eve I paused beside a blacksmiths door
And heard the anvils ring the vesper chime.
Then looking in, I saw upon the floor,
Old hammers worn with beating years of time.
“How many anvils have you had?” asked I,
“To wear and batter all those hammers so?”
“Just one,” he said with twinkling eye.
“The anvil wear the hammers out, you know.”
And so, thought I, the anvil of God’s Word –
For ages skeptic blows have beat upon.
Though the noise of falling blows was heard
The anvil is unharmed – the hammer is gone.
