I haven't read this little book in a while. But when I finally do feel the Spirit nudging me to be still, it's always exactly what I need when exactly I need it.
More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ.
"It is the I in you and me that blinds our eyes. The loss of I that I may know Him, see Him with new clearness in all creation...even in souls that are unlovable and unbeautiful. May the Lord grant this to us all. " Amy Carmichael
My Father, this moment, I push aside all sense of need...every request...each complaint...even words of praise or worship...just to stand silent...to turn the eyes of my soul to you...to look deep into your wonders...
