    7 June, 2018

    The heart given to the Lord, the soul lost in the Lord always has flesh that follows. Their delights are now different to fellow men, the lights of yesterday are dull, today holds less worry.

    God's ways are not as man's - fortunately. If they were He would be but as you and I - foolishly mortal and wantonly indulgent.

    Jesus' Father could do more contain His love to man, than Jesus could contain His devotion to His Father. It is only the blind and wilful pride of man that prevents him seeing this. As with Hezekiah's proud heart (King of Judah circa 715-686 B.C), the proud heart is the heart that does not…...[read more]
