• “Pain is never permanent.” –Teresa of Avila

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.

  • “Lead me, Lord, to the Rock that is higher than I. Let me hear your word, give me grace to obey, to build steadily, stone upon stone, day by day, to do what You say. Establish my heart where floods have no power to overwhelm, for Christ’s sake. Amen.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Verse of the Day

Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain. — Philippians 2:14-16 (NKJV)
