• “In case any are puzzled by the different translations from which I draw strength and help and delight, it is like this: In studying any object with the microscope we use different lenses and turn the mirror in various ways; each change brings out some new wonder and beauty. So it is for those who are not Greek or Hebrew scholars, and who use the work of scholars to open the meaning of the exhaustible Word–the Bible is richer than any single version can fully show.” – Amy Carmichael

IMMANENCE by Amy Carmichael

Have we not seen Thy shining garment’s hem
Floating at dawn across the golden skies;
Through thin blue veils at noon, bright majesties;
Seen starry hosts delight to gem
The splendor that shall be Thy diadem?


O Immanence, that knows no far nor near,
But as the air we breathe is with us here,
Our Breath of Life, O Lord, we worship Thee.


Worship and laud and praise Thee evermore;
Look up in wonder, and behold a door
Opened in heaven, and One set on a throne:
Stretch out a hand, and touch Thine own,
O Christ, our King, our Lord whom we adore.

  • “He will enable you to overcome the giants in your temperament …He allows adversity and trial in our lives in order to reveal our true nature to us. Thus He humbles us and breaks us, so that He can transform us into His likeness.” – Annie Poonen
