Will lead you closer



"Dare to love and to be a real friend.
The love you give and receive is a reality that will lead you closer and closer
to God as well as those whom God has given you to love."

Divinest comfort, Jesus doeth all things well


Amersfoort

All the way my Savior leads me
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His faithful mercies?
Who through life has been my guide
Heavenly peace, divinest comfort
Here by faith in Him to dwell
For I know whatever fall me
Jesus doeth all things well
~Fanny J. Crosby, 1867

Beyond which life cannot rise


Vermenton, Bourgogne

"There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life,
and beyond which life cannot rise.
And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive,
and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive."
~Jack London, The Call of the Wild

But you keep on loving


Dieppe

"If you try to have faith, you will be attacked by doubts you never knew you were capable of.
But you keep on believing, even if you fall, even if you struggle with doubts, you keep on believing.

And if you live a life that is marked by hope, by the belief that God is good, and there is goodness in the world that awaits us, you'll be disappointed. You'll be crushed, even, sometimes.
But you keep on hoping.

And if you choose to love, you will be misunderstood, you will be betrayed, you will be rejected by the people who most desperately need the love you have to offer.
We are blemished people, and in order to love anybody,
in any way, we have to expose that part of us that we'd rather keep hidden.
Our own selfishness, our own fears, our own hangups, and it's embarrassing. So humiliating.
But you keep on loving.

Many of us are obsessed with becoming rich, many of us are obsessed with becoming smart.
But all of our wisdom, all of our great insights; we see in part and we prophesy in part..
But when that which is perfect comes, that which is in part is done away with.
But There are three things that will remain: faith, and hope, and love.
Make sure you live in those."
―Rich Mullins

Not a divine idea



"My idea of God is not a divine idea.
It has to be shattered time after time.
He shatters it Himself.
"No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear."

My heart is overwhelmed



"From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed:
lead me to the rock that is higher than I."
