till He appeared &the soul felt its worth /// like, emptiness was tamed in me / c'mon my soul, oh don't you get shy on me. get up &praise !
i have nothing else fit for a King; except for a heart, singing hallelujah.. hallelujah.
&there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. an angel of the Lord appeared to them, &they were terrified. but the angel said to them, "do not be afraid. i bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. this will be a sign to you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths &lying in a manger."
my home's in heaven; just travelin' through the world -Billy Graham
as rain &snow come down from heaven, &don't return to it w/o watering Earth &making it bud &flourish, so that it yields seed for sower &bread for 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.
out of love for the truth &the desire to bring it to light -95 theses, 1517.
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.
when the world shook &the sun was wiped out of heaven, it was not at the crucifixion, but at the cry from cross: the cry which confessed that God was forsaken of God (Matt: 27:46) &now let the revolutionists choose a creed from all creeds &a god from all gods of the world, carefully weighing all 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. -GKC. †
