It is heavy
and takes your breath away
It is the weight
of God’s glory
It is unending
It is God’s grace
It is stubborn
It is love,
God’s incredible love for you
All for you
All of it
weighs you down
and chases you
until you relent
under His beautiful
find your peace
– Susie Stewart
All the loneliness, angers, hatreds, envies and itchings that [this world] contains, if rolled into one single experience and put into the scale against the least moment of the joy that is felt in Heaven, would have no weight that could be registered at all.
– C.S. Lewis
So the Word became human and made His home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen His glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.
– John 1:14 (NLT)
The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
The skies display His craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make Him known.
They speak without a sound or word;
their voice is never heard.
Yet their message has gone throughout the earth,
and their words to all the world.
– Psalm 19:1-4 (NLT)
There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
– John 15;13 (NLT)
O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.
You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too great for me to understand!
I can never escape from your Spirit!
I can never get away from your presence!
– Psalm 139:1-7 (NLT)
