• “He is so infinitely blessed, that every perception of His blissful presence imparts a gladness to the heart. Every degree of approach to Him is, in the same proportion, a degree of happiness.” – Susannah Wesley

Only in Hearing are We Saved – Michelle Garver

It’s in the Strait and Narrow
that the waters overflow and grace abounds.
Not in lakes and ponds do waters flood.
But in the rivers
are often floods!
So obey the strait and narrow
in order to gush His waters of grace.

In the pressures of life
are we made right.
By turning us into gold
He does come as Light.
We are His jewels made in the quarry where pressure is much
And beauty and crystal-shine is too.
Under the deep dark, layers of mud and yuck,
and we too in this world of dark
Are to come forth in Light as His jewels.

Though it is never by pressure, trials, or tribulation that we are fully made right.
BUT by His Spirit we are saved.
Those who draw nigh unto Him in trial,
He will also draw nigh unto.
Those who deny His help in trials,
He will also deny.

Let us remember that God was not in the wind, or the earthquake, or the fire.
But it was His voice that Elijah heard alone in the cave.
Here is where He drew nigh,
Here is where he received.
Grace from the Father’s lips,
of mercy, faith, comfort, help, and guidance.
Here is where the Father lived.
In drawing nigh,
Elijah found Rest and Hope in his trial.

  • “Jesus, who so often says “Whoever loves Me…” “Do you love Me?” is concerned about our LOVE! He is concerned about a special kind of love…He who has loved us so much wants to possess us completely, with everything we are and have. Jesus gave Himself wholly and completely for us. Now His love is yearning for us to surrender ourselves and everything that we are to Him, so that He can really be our “first love” – Basilea Schlink
