"Jesus, come ravish your bride, the church."
This amazing phrase has become my petition of late. I want to encourage you to get this Podcast. The Holy Spirit uses this tool to speak to me more than any other. Dish some up for yourself.
Below are pictures of flowers from around our house and a few of our baby girl.
Stephanie... This is one of my favorite poems I discovered in high school... Thought you might like it... by John Donne
HOLY SONNETS. XIV.
Batter my heart, three-person'd God ; for you
As yet but knock ; breathe, shine, and seek to mend ;
That I may rise, and stand, o'erthrow me, and bend
Your force, to break, blow, burn, and make me new.
I, like an usurp'd town, to another due,
Labour to admit you, but O, to no end.
Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend,
But is captived, and proves weak or untrue.
Yet dearly I love you, and would be loved fain,
But am betroth'd unto your enemy ;
Divorce me, untie, or break that knot again,
Take me to you, imprison me, for I,
Except you enthrall me, never shall be free,
Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.
except you ravish me.... wow.
I love it! I was wondering yesterday why we don't write love songs to God like Lionel Richie does to women.
I may blog about this. :-)
