My song in the night

"You hold my eyelids open;
I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
I have considered the days of old,
The years of ancient times.
I call to remembrance my song in the night.
I meditate within my heart.

Will the Lord cast off forever?
And will He be favorable no more? 
Has His mercy ceased forever?
Has His promise failed forevermore?

I will also meditate on all Your work,
And talk of Your deeds.
Your way, O God,
is in the sanctuary;
Who is so great a God as our God?"
~Psalm 77:4-8,12,13

Never take lightly what it cost Him

"Never forget what Jesus did for you. Never take lightly what it cost Him. 
And never assume that if it cost Him His very life, that it won't also cost you yours."

With all that is left

I cry the Name of the One who loves me
The Name of the One on whom I call
'Til it roars like thunder
Rolling down these canyon walls

Every breath I've ever breathed
Was sent as a gift from on high
And with all that is left of all that is me
Up to the Heavens I cry

~Rich Mullins

Pleasure in the pathless woods

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
   There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society where none intrudes,
   By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
   I love not Man the less, but Nature more.."
~George Gordon Byron

Those things My hand has made

"Heaven is My throne,
And earth is My footstool.
Where is the house that you will build Me?
And where is the place of My rest?
For all those things My hand has made."

But God’s eternal Laws are kind

Coumeenoole Beach, Dingle Peninsula, Ireland

"And thus we rust Life’s iron chain
  Degraded and alone:
And some men curse, and some men weep,
  And some men make no moan:
But God’s eternal Laws are kind
  And break the heart of stone.

Ah! Happy they whose hearts can break
And peace of pardon win!
How else may man make straight his plan
And cleanse his soul from Sin?
How else but through a broken heart
May Lord Christ enter in?"

~Oscar Wilde
from Ballad of Reading Gaol
