You alone are God

Context: Truly exhausted, I have arrived safely in Ely (UK), at last. Yesterday’s 5-hour train ride was SO exciting, and I met some wonderful people, learning about their lives and the purpose of their journeys, and sharing the pleasure of their achievements. To my delight, I coped well with several very long tunnels, and even managed the loo, though I admit I did not lock the door. Today’s photo is an action-shot, taken as the train passed through a station, just to prove I was really there!

I will make all my goodness pass before you,

and I will call out my name, Yahweh, before you.
(Exodus 33:19; NLT).

You alone are God:
My birth, my breath,
My everything.

You live in me,
And I in you:
So we are one
In all I do.

You alone are God:
Inspire my weary heart
To sing

Through every word,
My soul laid bare –
Till all my life
Becomes a prayer.

Pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17; NIV).

    • That made me smile, David, many thanks. Brother Lawrence’s little book is called “The practice of the presence of God”. For me, it is the spiritual all-time classic. I’ve started making a few of my favourite quotes into headers for my website, so from time to time you will see them appear there. The book itself is easily available from Amazon, and very cheap to buy. Have a blessed day, with love from Ruth XXXXXX
