“In the hush of Vows dear” from LWillows

woman-3498794__340

I invite you, I invite you
Spirit of God, near
This heart stilled silent
In the hush of vows dear.

Speak into all chambers
They open, they wait
Lifted towards you
With joy, with elate.

I name you, I name you
Spirit of God, near
Receiving graced mercy
In the hush of vows dear.

Grace; it embraces all heart and soul with the Divine…

“Grace is an energy; not a mere sentiment; not a mere thought of the Almighty; not even a word of the Almighty. It is as real an energy as the energy of electricity. It is a divine energy; it is the energy of the divine affection rolling in plenteousness toward the shores of human need.” -Benjamin Jowett (1817-1893)

“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.” Titus 2:11

“Grace is a certain beginning of glory in us.” -Saint Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)

“For grace is given not because we have done good works, but in order that we may be able to do them.” – Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430)

“Man is born broken. He lives by mending. The grace of God is glue. -Eugene Gladstone O’Neill (1888-1953)

“Grace is love that cares and stoops and rescues.” -John R. W. Stott (1921- )

“Christ is no Moses, no exactor, no giver of laws, but a giver of grace, a Savior; he is infinite mercy and goodness, freely and bountifully given to us.” -Martin Luther (1483-1546)

“I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.” -Anne Lamott

“The grace of the spirit comes only from heaven, and lights up the whole bodily presence. – Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“I need thy presence every passing hour; What but thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?” -Henry Francis Lyte (1793-1847)

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added affliction he addeth his mercy,
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.
-Annie Johnson Flint (1862-1932)

“The burden of life is from ourselves, its lightness from the grace of Christ and the love of God.” -William Bernard Ullanthorne (1806-1889)

“Deep in God’s Mercy”…a worship poem from LWillows

DeepinGodsMercyWillows

See my heart’s fear, Lord,
then come, do be Near.
Let all that resides in
each tear reappear.

Inside of your deepest
Grace and heart’s rest,
how such a love’s comfort
sweeps in this prayer, blessed.

See all in your view, Lord,
then come, do be Near.
Let all that resides
in my all reappear.

Take me to your throne
That I may bow low,
Deep in God’s Mercy
with fear in Love’s tow.
