• “It takes spiritual authority to bless others. Many Christians say, “God bless you,” but one clearly senses that although the words express a kind wish, they lack real spiritual authority.” – Basilea Schlink

Though some good things of lower worth by Anna L. Waring

“The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance.” — Psalm 16:5.

 
Though some good things of lower worth
My heart is called on to resign,
Of all the gifts in heaven and earth,
The greatest and the best is mine
The love of God in Christ made known —
The love that is enough alone,
My Father’s love is all my own.
 
My soul’s Restorer, let me learn
In that deep love to live and rest —
Let me the precious thing discern
Of which I am indeed possessed.
My treasure let me feel and see,
And let my moments, as they flee,
Unfold my endless life in Thee.
 
Let me not dwell so much within
My bounded heart, with anxious heed —
Where all my searches meet with sin,
And nothing satisfies my need —
It shuts me from the sound and sight
Of that pure world of life and light,
Which has no breadth, or length, or height.
 
Let me Thy power, Thy beauty see
So shall the hopeless labor cease,
And my free heart shall follow thee
Through paths of everlasting peace.
My strength Thy gift, — my life Thy care, —
I shall forget to seek elsewhere
The wealth to which my soul is heir.
 
I was not called to walk alone,
To clothe myself with love and light;
And for Thy glory, not my own,
My soul is precious in Thy sight.
My evil heart can never be
A home, a heritage for me —
But Thou canst make it fit for Thee.

Verse of the Day

“O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. — 1 Corinthians 15:55-57 (NKJV)
