O, Love Divine

O, Love Divine, amazing love,
That brought to earth from Heaven above,
The Son of God for us to die,
That we might dwell on high.

He died for you, He died for me,
He shed His blood to make us free
Upon the cross of Calvary.
The Savior died for me.

For us a crown of thorns He wore,
For us a robe of scorn He bore,
He conquered death and raised the grave,
And lives again our souls to save.

O, Wanderer, come I bid believe,
His grace by faith receive,
Awake our eyes and hear His call,
The feast is spread for all.

I Don't Wait Anymore

I recently finished reading I Don't Wait Anymore by Grace Thornton.
Here are some quotes that stood out to me.

"'It just makes me think about how incredibly big God is,' she said. 'The fact that He created a universe so big we can’t even find the edge of it after decades of looking for it. I mean, that’s just crazy.'"
(page 31, Kindle Edition)

"'God,' I whispered, 'I’m going to sit here every morning. I’m going to read Your Word for an hour at least. I’m going to pray, not for answers, not for You to send something into my life to make it make sense or to give it direction, but just to know You, to know You for You. To hear You speak. I just want You. I don’t want the life I have. If everything I’ve been taught is true, nothing in my life and nothing that I want is better than me really knowing You. Please show me how to know You. Please show Yourself to me. Please open Your Word to me so that my heart can know You.'"
(page 51, Kindle Edition)

"That you go to God to get God, not to get what God can give."
(page 54, Kindle Edition)

"Please spend my life the way You want to, the way that’s best for Your kingdom. My life is Yours. I just want to know You more."
(page 95, Kindle Edition)

"They really saw Him, and they wanted Him alone. There was no wavering. It didn’t feel like a sacrifice. Easy, no. But simple, yes."
(page 111, Kindle Edition)

"God, let me see You this year, let me know You more by the end of this year than I do at the beginning of it."
(page 140, Kindle Edition)

"That’s how the best narratives happen. Yours. Mine. I don’t need my story to look fancy. I don’t need it to look traditional, and I don’t need it to be crazy and adrenaline filled. I just need it to give me more of Jesus. I don’t want to settle for anything less."
(page 220, Kindle Edition)

Be Still, My Soul

Be still, my soul; the Lord is on thy side;
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heavenly, Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul; thy God doth undertake
To guide the future as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy confidence, let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul; the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.

Be still, my soul, though dearest friends depart
And all is darkened in the vale of tears;
Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
Who comes to soothe thy sorrows and thy fears.
Be still, my soul; thy Jesus can repay
From His own fulness all He takes away.

Be still, my soul; the hour is hastening on
When we shall be forever with the Lord,
When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul; when change and tears are past,
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.
