The Nearness of God (Sunday Quote)

Some time ago, early in the morning, I read in my devotional “A Diary of Private Prayer” by John Baillie. As the sun slowly rose the beams of light shone through my kitchen window. The rays broke through some stained glass and hit the pages of my book while I was praying.

It was a gentle glimpse of my Father’s heart through creation.

Here is what I was reading,

“O LORD and Maker of all things, whose creative power made the first ray of light, and who looked on the world’s first morning and saw that it was good. I praise you for this light that now streams through my window to waken me to the life of another day.” 

Psalm 73:28

But for me it is good to be near God;
I have made the Lord God my refuge,
that I may tell of all your works.

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.
