Quotes from the Book:

“The deepest wounds of the soul are healed only by compassion… People do not merely need to be clothed, they need to be embraced with love. A love that enters into their own fears and frailty, a love that suffers with them and stays with them through their darkest hour.”

“Love has a certain element of tenderness, which alone pierces through the heart and binds us more intimately than any force in the universe ever can.”

“It isn’t violence that can break through our hearts. It isn’t force that binds us and keeps us together. Only tenderness has the power to accomplish what the fullness of love desires to do. Tenderness that approaches us little by little, and handles our feelings with the deepest affection and delight. Tenderness that is willing to wait for the right time until we are ready and we are no longer afraid.”

“There at the cross, we see all pain and darkness conquered in such a way that it is defeated forever. Not by disregarding it. Not by denying it. But by giving value even to our tears. By loving everything about us, including our very worst hurts.”

“How do you wipe away pain? You don’t. You put in tenderness, compassion and joy. You cling to hope and then you offer everything to God. And you wait, with faith you see all things anew – light shines out from darkness, happiness grows through every pain, and all things become indeed so very beautiful in His time.” Continue reading

When Darkness Comes

When darkness comes, do not fear. God is your might, God is your light!

Those who sow in tears will reap in joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed for sowing, will certainly come again with joy, carrying his sheaves. – Psalms 126:5-6, WEB

Darkness comes, but it cannot stay. It must sooner or later give way to the light. So when darkness comes, don’t be afraid. God is there even in the darkness where you are, and though you can’t see Him, He watches over you. And He will carry you through until the morning comes.

Darkness Fades

Darkness comes
But it will pass
It cannot last
It can never prevail.

Only light endures,
Only love.
And in the end,
There is only light.

We weep now,
But we hope.
We groan in pain,
But we carry on.

We work in the dark,
But we shall reap in the light.
And though we die, we live.
And we shall always rise.

Our Precious Now

We often miss the good old times because we fail to see them while they’re with us today.

This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it! – Psalms 118:24 WEBBE

As much as we treasure what’s precious in the past, let us not fail to recognize the valuable things we have today. Today, we are given a gift – we are given a chance to live, to love.

Today

We’re creating memories now
We’re making the good old times
This is that picture perfect moment
This is that perfect day.

You may not see how
You may not see now
But we’re here where we’d go back to
We’re here where we’d someday want to be.

You may want to skip it
But you’d be glad you’ve lived it.
Someday you’d say,
You were glad you’ve stayed.

So take this moment and live
Remember it would soon pass away
Someday you’d want to return right here
Right at this moment where you are today.

Love Breaks Free

It is love that sets us free. True love. Unselfish love. Faithful love.

For you, brothers, were called for freedom. – Galatians 5, WEBBE

When we love, our hearts expand in such a way as to contain more patience, more understanding and more kindness. It gets big enough to contain even pain, even suffering.

We become courageous in love and we are able to break down barriers that shut us in. We find a way. We think of a way to reach those whom we love so we can take care of them and protect them. We break free from our own comfort zones out of the depths of our love.

It is love that enables us to grow and to reach our fullest potential. We become who we were meant to be. We are freed from our self-imposed limitations and we find the freedom that only those who love could ever truly know.

“Mama’s love had always been the kind that acted itself out with soup pot and sewing basket. But now that these things were taken away, the love seemed as whole as before. She sat in her chair at the window and loved us. She loved the people she saw in the street– and beyond: her love took in the city, the land of Holland, the world. And so I learned that love is larger than the walls which shut it in.” – Corrie ten Boom
