Quote for Today

Amy Carmichael

“O Thou who art my quietness, my deep repose,
My rest from strife of tongues, my holy hill,
Fair is Thy pavilion, where I hold me still.
Back let them fall from me, my clamorous foes,
Confusions multiplied;
From crowding things of sense I flee, and Thee I hide.
Until this tyranny be overpast,
Thy hand will hold me fast;
What though the tumult of the storm increase,
Grant to Thy servant strength, O Lord, and bless with peace.”

Quote for Today

Amy Carmichael

“And shall I pray Thee change Thy will, my Father,
Until it be according unto mine?
But, no, Lord, no, that never shall be, rather
I pray Thee blend my human will with Thine.

I pray Thee hush the hurrying, eager longing,
I pray Thee soothe the pangs of keen desire—
See in my quiet places, wishes thronging—
Forbid them, Lord, purge, though it be with fire.”

Thought for Today – The Nature of Love

Thought for Today

The Nature of Love

God’s Love by its very nature is an active and creative power within the soul of man. Creation is proof of God ever seeking, ever desiring to expend and lavish His love in new dimensions. The Word declares that we were “created for His pleasure” and it is His pleasure to pour out Himself in unmeasured and unmerited means. His Love in us seeks, desires and ever works to color everything within its reach; not to own, rule or control but to inspire others to live fully in God.

The infinite and all-encompassing God whom our forefathers sought with passion calls us to depths unknowable and heights unsearchable.

“Deep calleth unto deep”
Psalm 42:7

The Love of God is the call and His Love in man is the response.

“We love him, because he first loved us.”
1 John 4:19

Σ

“He said “Love…as I have loved you.”
We cannot love too much.”

LOVE

“He that loveth not
knoweth not God;
for God is love”
1 John 4:4

Life does not consist of what we believe but in how we live.

Love IS the evidence of knowing God.

Ω

“Give me the love that leads the way,
The faith that nothing can dismay,
The hope no disappointments tire,
The passion that will burn like fire,
Let me not sink to be a clod:
Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God”
