"Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young."
~Sir Arthur Wing Pinero
It has been located within the deepest trials of my life that I have been given the gorgeous opportunity to see every line and angle and the marvelous structure of the Almighty’s face. We don’t want the trials, but we wouldn’t get so close to our Lord without them. No one likes to struggle or suffer, but if we harness it and treat it like a sort of gift, not a gift for the moment, but a deposit for the future—we can learn and grow and become more. We accomplish all of this by understanding that wisdom is gained, a foundation made for something more beautiful, more gorgeous, more satisfying to enter our life. We are being groomed to be a blessing in our blessing and if our blessing involves another, then for our blessing, too.
"Never shrink from deep devotion, because you fear it's trials or its sacrifice. Paul, in martyrdom, was unspeakably happier than God's half-hearted Servants."
-William R. Hentington
Preparation is never a waste of time. The deeper the roots, the wider the shoots. (Rick Pino)
The soul is vast, broad...deep. Nothing possesses the measure to seep in deeper than the Infinite Love of God. But Heaven itself will deposit people in your life who rejuvenate you, who wake up something that has been dormant in you. God can resurrect a heart and make it smile. A heart so big, so full—other things may try to get in, but only the real thing can fulfill its void.
God has ample Love weighed and measured in good portion for you today. All you need to do is receive. Cleave to the good you have found.
Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls;
All Your waves and billows have gone over me. (Psalm 42:7)
When it's God, your heart is harnessed to it like an Anchor of Hope. Wind and waves may come-but it's stability grows stronger.
What a Beautiful Soul you are...
Wake up knowing it's a Beautiful Day. It is YOUR beautiful day.
Rise up and take the day in honor of all the beautiful days yet before you! Everything behind you has prepared you for this hour. Blessings will shower.
