till He appeared &the soul felt its worth // oh so relevant.
God is Goodness.. His love is, as it were, bottomless, selfless by very definition; it has everything to give.." -C.S. Lewis
oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom &knowledge of God ! how unsearchable his judgements, &his paths beyond tracing out !
but those who hope in the lord will renew their strength. they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run not grow weary, they will walk ¬ be faint
a father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling
bear with each other &forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. forgive as the Lord forgave you.
when you pass through the waters, I will be with you; &when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
don't let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
J : Jesus
O : others
Y : you
there is no one holy like the Lord there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God
create in me a pure heart, O God, &renew a steadfast spirit within me
as the rain &the snow come down from heaven, &do not return to it without watering the earth &making it bud &flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower &bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but accomplish what i desire &achieve the purpose for which i sent it.
when the world shook &the sun was wiped out of heaven, it was not at the crucifixion, but at the cry from the cross: the cry which confessed that God was forsaken of God. &now let the revolutionists choose a creed from all the creeds &a god from all the gods of the world, carefully weighing all the gods of inevitable recurrence &of unalterable power. they will not find another god who has himself been in revolt. nay (the matter grows too difficult for human speech), but let the atheists themselves choose a god. they will find only 1 divinity who ever uttered their isolation; only 1 religion in which God seemed for an instant to be an atheist.
-G.K.C orthodoxy. matt. 27:46
"my God, why have you forsaken me?" Jesus cried from cross. †
if there are words for Him then, I don't have them. you see my brain has not yet reached a point where it could form a thought that could adequately describe the greatness of my God. &my voice is so inhibited, restrained by human limits, that it's hard to even sing a praise up. my God: unsearchable yet knowable. indefinable, yet approachable. indescribable, yet personal.
