Wednesday Wisdom No. 23


“We are and remain such creeping Christians, because we look at ourselves and not at Christ; because we gaze at the marks of our own soiled feet, and the trail of our own defiled garments.... Each, putting his foot in the footprint of the Master, and so defacing it, turns to examine how far his neighbor’s footprint corresponds with that which he still calls the Master’s, although it is but his own.” ~ George MacDonald

Wednesday Wisdom No. 22

God's art

"Flowers, what are they?  They are but the thoughts of God solidified, God’s beautiful thoughts put into shape.  Storms, what are they?  They are God’s terrible thoughts written out that we may read them.  Thunders, what are they?  They are God’s powerful emotions just opened out that men may hear them.  The world is just the materializing of God’s thoughts; for the world is a thought in God’s eye." ~ Charles Spurgeon

Wednesday Wisdom No. 21


No need to search for
No need to grasp for
for my life
or purpose
for what I do.
No need to hope for inner peace,
that sense of well-being
for which every heart
No need to hope that
someone or something
will make me
or give me joy.
I no longer need any
of these things because
has connected me to you
and you have named me
your child.

~ Paul Tripp, New Morning Mercies
