Weekend Wanderings

Not many words this weekend. Just this small prayer~

May it be more revealed to me in all its influences
that my love to Him may be more fervent and glowing;
let the mighty tide of His everlasting love cover the rocks of my sin and care;
then let my spirit float above those things
which had else wrecked my life.
Selection taken from Valley of Vision: A collection of Puritan Prayers & Devotions

The weight of the world presses us lower, and it’s there, in the spaces where we can scarcely breathe, that we find He is closest, holding our hands, lifting our spirits, filling up the holes in our cracked-up hearts ~

Some reading for you this weekend:

“Katie says that Jesus wrecked her life,” Lydia tells me. “God turned everything upside-down, and later she realized He actually turned it right-side up.” ~ From my friend, Jennifer. Read the rest HERE

“This book she has written has come with a price. You see, salvation in Christ is free, but obedience to Him may cost you your life. In actuality, becoming a believer of Christ is the easy part — anyone who believes will be saved. It’s becoming a follower that will cost you everything.” ~ From my friend, Michele-Lyn. Read the rest HERE

    Oh friend, when we are in the lowest of lows, He is so close. But a breathe away. I am so looking forward to reading your book my friend.

    I understand in more ways than before. The heaviness of the world, piled on my heart, makes me only turn to Him for restoration. Without HIS care and blessings, I could hardly make it. His overflowing comfort is what counts most for me most of the time…

    Having a scarecly can breath moment – and because of Him I can pull in that breath one at a time! Wonderful quotes – beautiful encouragement!
