Not A Square Inch…

There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: ‘Mine!’

Some true (and comforting) words from a former Dutch Prime Minister, Abraham Kuyper

Christ’s Love Artistry

If traces of Christ’s love-artistry be upon me,

may he work on with his divine brush

until the complete image be obtained

and I be made a perfect copy of him,

my Master.

From the puritan prayer The LOVE OF JESUS, The Valley of Vision, edited by Arthur Bennett

A great purpose…

There is no circumstance, no trouble, no testing, that can ever touch me until, first of all, it has gone past God and past Christ, right through to me. if it has come that far, it has come with a great purpose.

Words by Alan Redpath

Let Me Learn By Paradox…

Let me learn by paradox

     that the way down is the way up,

     that to be low is to be high,

     that the broken heart is the healed heart,

     that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit,

     that the repenting soul is the victorious soul,

     that to have nothing is to possess all,

     that to bear the cross is to wear the crown,

     that to give is to receive,

    that the valley is the place of vision.

An excerpt from the prayer The Valley of Vision from “The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers and & Devotions” Edited by Arthur Bennett.
