Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

glow of Your love
photo by Patrick Frey

“O Lord, prepare my heart, I beseech You,
to reverence You, to adore You, to love You;
to hate, for love of You, all my sins and imperfections,
shortcomings, whatever displeases You;
and to love all which You love.

Give me, Lord, fervor of love, shame for my
unthankfulness, sorrow for my sins, longing for Your
grace, and to be wholly united with You.

Let my very coldness call for the glow of Your love;
let the emptiness and dryness, like a barren and thirsty
land, thirst for You, call on You to come into my soul,
who refreshes those who are weary.

Let my heart ache to You and for You,
Who stills the aching of the heart.

Let my mute longings praise You, crave You,
Who satisfies the empty soul that waits on You.”
- E. B. Pusey
