Because Sometimes It's You Who Needs To Change

Gen. V,24
Oh! for a closer walk with God,
A calm and heavenly frame;
A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb!

Where is the blessedness I knew
When first I saw the Lord?
Where is the soul-refershing view
Of Jesus and his word?

What peaceful hours I once enjoyed!
How sweet their memory still!
But they have left an aching void,
The world can never fill.

Return, O holy Dove, return!
Sweet the messenger of rest!
I hate the sins that made thee mourn
And drove thee from my breast.

The dearest idol I have known,
Whate'er that idol be,
Help me to tear it from thy throne,
And worship only thee.

So shall my walk be close with God,
Calm and serene my frame;
So purer light shall mark the road
That leads me to the Lamb.

William Cowper

May your eyes be open to the fullness of His grace and the vastness of this broken world.

May your thoughts be taken captive, and your words be as beautiful as ivory keys played on a cold Autumn morning.

May your walk with God be closer and closer each day. 

Praying this for you today, my friend.

Only because it challenges me each and every day. 

I'll write more soon. ; )

Living to Love,
