A Safe Place

July clouds Costa Rica 2009“SURRENDER your poverty and acknowledge your nothingness to the Lord.  Whether you understand it or not, God loves you, is present in you, lives in you, dwells in you, calls you, saves you, and offers you an understanding and compassion which are like nothing you have ever found in a book or heard in a sermon…”   Thomas Merton

“Come to Me now”, Jesus says.

Acknowledge and accept who I want to be for you:

A Saviour of boundless compassion,

infinite patience,

unbearable forgiveness,

and Love that keeps no score of wrongs.

Quit projecting onto Me your own feelings about yourself.  At this moment your life is a bruised reed And I Will Not Crush It, a smoldering wick and I will not quench it.  You are in a Safe Place...”                           Brennan Manning

1 Timothy 4:4  “...ever nourishing your own self on the truths of the faith.”

This is worth thinking on, isn’t it?
