Weekend Wanderings

Teach me that Christ cannot be the way if I am the end,
that he cannot be Redeemer if I am my own saviour,
that there can be no true union with him
while the creature has my heart,
that faith accepts him as Redeemer and Lord or not at all.

Oh this, friends, some moving worship for your weekend.

Can’t see the video? Try HERE.

Some good stuff from around the web:

    • “They’re here right next to me — all these women rejected for the size of their pants, the size of their house, the size of their family, the size of their work. Women brushed off because they live too large or they live too small, because there is more of them than people know what to do with, because they can’t or don’t or won’t fit into someone else’s box. Please, ladies, go read THIS from Ann
    • “I will make space for silence and stack the dishes and laundry and the love right in front of me.” My friend Annie whispers some sweet words about being all there, and soaking up the silence.
    • My friend Shelly speaks beauty into accepting the hard things; “Acceptance, it’s the train pushing grace forward through the steam of futility.” Go read her words here.
    • And this, from the amazing Sarah Clarkson,“Bach played because God gave him that beauty and it wasn’t about him, it was about what God gave him to create.” Yes! Please read the rest of this moving post. 
    • “But what if you follow the lie out of a hope or desire that it provides an easier, surer, more fun way to happiness? Read the rest of Kimberly’s post here.
