“He made us lamps for His light, not the salesmen or customers of His fire. He fits no category, exceeds every attribution, defies all description. He is immeasurably more than the object of our study—He’s the subject of the universe itself. “He’s the superlative of everything good you choose to call Him”, Rev. Lockwood proclaimed— yet we still tread the surface of the Sea of Him seeking to stay afloat—waters in which He intended us to drown.”
I’m going under for the third time. No rescue is necessary.
Another marvelous prayer.
“I am no longer my own, but Yours.
Put me to what You will, rank me with whom You will; Put me to doing, put me to suffering; Let me be employed for You or laid aside for You; Let me be exalted for You, or brought low for You; Let me be full, let me be empty;
Let me have all things, let me have nothing; I freely and heartily yield all things to Your pleasure and disposal. And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, You are mine, and I am Yours. So be it. And the covenant that I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.” —The Methodist Covenant Prayer
Now, pray it again with all your heart—and watch happens to your day.
