Words of Wisdom from D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“The terrible, tragic fallacy of the last hundred years has been to think that all man’s troubles are due to his environment, and that to change the man you have nothing to do but change his environment. That is a tragic fallacy. It overlooks the fact that it was in Paradise that man fell.”
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“we must never look at any sin in our past life in any way except that which leads us to praise God and to magnify His grace in Christ Jesus.”
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“Be still, and know that I am God’. We must not interpret that ‘Be still’ in a sentimental manner. Some regard it as a kind of exhortation to us to be silent; but it is nothing of the sort. It means, ‘Give up (or ‘Give in’) and admit I am God. God is addressing people who are opposed to Him”
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“It is very foolish to ignore the past. The man who does ignore it, and assumes that our problems are quite new, and that therefore the past has nothing at all to teach us, is a man who is not only grossly ignorant of the Scriptures, he is equally ignorant of some of the greatest lessons even in secular history.”
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“I will not glory, even in my orthodoxy, for even that can be a snare if I make a god of it… Let us rejoice in Him in all His fullness and in Him alone.”
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“I am profoundly grateful to God that He did not grant me certain things for which I asked, and that He shut certain doors in my face.”
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“The tragedy of the world today is that it starts too near to its problems.”
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“I sometimes think that the whole art of the Christian life is the art of asking questions.”
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“I Dance in Air” a poem from L.Willows

I Dance in Air

Dance again, this motion of
Comes the tide from where, from There
Kept towards all gathered love,
this the heart that keeps me bare.

Surge to home until fill round
Reach to heavens edge, oh, dare.
Kept toward all gathered found
Here I dance, I dance in Air.

One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.

Psalm 27:4

“On Bended Knee”…a worship poem by LWillows

ZWOMANREDDOWNFR16389353-lgKEMILKEMAL

On bended knee I find my own,
the way of simple ‘letting’ known.
Freed are all the burdens kept
out they flew, oh out they leap..

I bowed my head to let all dim,
The Love, came then, it soared; poured in.
My all curled toward the mercy Bright.
Heart folded round firm in this might.

Wrap me round and hold me tight,
I never want to leave this site.
Oh let the fetters of the day,
find their way without my say.

I need to Love on bended knee;
T’is how I die, I live, I see.
The glory All is farther than,
the Whole and heart of even me.

Life, its source, the beauty of…
comes free, but ‘Let’ from far above,
and when we bend our lives to Love
to live and die, to reach to see….
we arch in deep humility.

Touching portal veils that hold,
embrace of sacred love extolled.
