The Touch of a Friend’s Hand

Good Morning!

The trail bikes collided on the remote country road and two teenage friends were seriously injured.

When Tony finally woke from an induced coma, he later said  ‘The touch of my friend Jake’s hand when I woke up, settled my fears and helped in my recovery.  Knowing he was alive made all the  difference in my fight to live..

We can only remember and imagine the INCREDIBLE comfort experienced by the Apostle John.     In the Book of Revelations Rev. 1. 16,17,18.

John by the time of this event would have  been a very, very old man.

     John’s Vison on Patmos overwhelmed him.   

   1.16.  His Countenance was as the sun shines in His Strength (Glory)

When I saw Him, I fell at His Feet as one dead.

He laid His Right Hand upon me and said.    Fear not, I am the first and the last.  The beginning and the end.

      18.   I am He Who lives and was dead.

Behold!  I am alive for evermore.     a-men. 


Nothing in life for John would ever be the SAME.

In our relationship with Christ…..Reach out today, touch Him let Him spiritually TOUCH you.

Then, in your family, community, and wherever you walk.    Be prepared as God leads to gently touch another.  None of us can ever know how much the value of TOUCH is when the source is not from our own humanity.

       Touch the world with His Love and His Risen HOPE  today.!

                                Peace! Love!






About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
