Celebrating the Excellencies of His Name -The Gift of Gifts, a Prayer from the Valley of Vision-

 24.12.11



O SOURCE OF ALL GOOD,
    What shall I render to thee for he gifts of gifts,
    thine own dear Son, begotten, not created,
    my Redeemer, proxy, surety, substitute,
    his self-emptying incomprehensible,
    his infinite of love beyond the heart's grasp.

Herein is wonder of wonders:
    He came below to raise me above,
    was born like me that I might become like Him.

Herein is love;
    when I cannot rise to Him he draws near on wings of grace,
          to raise me to himself.

Herein is power;
    When Deity and humanity were infinitely apart
    he united them in indissoluble unity,  the uncreated and the created.

Herein is wisdom;
    when I was undone, with no will to return to him,
    and no intellect to devise recovery,
he came, God-incarnate, to save me to the uttermost
          as man to die my death,
          to shed satisfying blood on my behalf,
          to work out a perfect righteousness for me.

O GOD, take me in spirit to the watchful shepherds, and
    enlarge my mind;
     let me hear good tiding of great joy,
     and hearing, believe, rejoice, praise, ador,
     my conscience bathed in an ocean of repose,
     my eyes uplifted to a reconciled Father;
place me with the ox, ass, camel, goat,
    to look with them upon my Redeemer's face,
    and in him account myself delivered from sin;
 let me with Simeon clasp the new-born child to my heart.
     embrace him with undying faith,
     exulting that he is mine and I am His.

In Him thou hast given me so much that Heaven can give me no more.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
