Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.
I was in darkness all of my life
I never knew the day from the night
But Spirit, you made me see
I swore I knew the way on my own
Head full of rocks, a heart made of stone
But Spirit, you moved in me
At your touch my sleeping spirit was awakened
On my darkened heart the light of Christ has shone
Called into a kingdom that cannot be shaken
Heaven’s citizen by grace and grace alone
So I’ll stand in faith by grace and grace alone
I will run the race by grace and grace alone
I will slay my sin by grace and grace alone
I will reach the end by grace and grace alone
You know, my whole life I have been complaining that my work was constantly interrupted, until I discovered that my interruptions were my work.
What God looks on as obstinate weakness, we call strength.
