George Matheson reading/song

George Matheson quote I love George Matheson. Can't wait to meet him in heaven (he died in 1902). He wrote one of my favorite hymns: "O Love that Wilt Not Let Me Go" (he wrote it in about five minutes at one of the lowest points in his life ... he said it was like a "dayspring from on high" gave it to him). I will share the words of the hymn at the end of a short devotional of his I read today. The reading is based on the scripture "Jesus constrained His disciples to get into a ship" (Mt. 14:22) And we all know that just because the Lord tells you to go to the other side, doesn't mean there won't be storms on the way ... but JESUS is with us! And now here is George Matheson's profound take on that verse:

"Jesus constrained them to go! One would think that if ever there was the certain promise of success in a mission, it was here. Surely, here, if anywhere, a triumphant issue might have been confidently predicted; and yet here, more than anywhere, there was seeming failure. He sent them out on a voyage, and they met such a storm as they had never yet experienced. Let me ponder this, for it has been so with me, too. I have sometimes felt myself impelled to act by an influence which seemed above me ... constrained to put out to sea. The belief that I was constrained gave me confidence, and I was sure of a calm voyage. But the result was outward failure. The calm became a storm: the sea raged, the winds roared, the ship tossed in the midst of the waves and my enterprise was wrecked before it could reach the land. Was, then, my divine command a delusion? No, nor yet was my mission a failure. He did send me on that voyage, but He did not send me for my purpose. He had one end, and I had another. My end was the outward calm; His was my meeting with the storm. My end was to gain the harbor of a material rest; His was to teach me there is a rest even on the open sea." George Matheson

O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go (by George Matheson)

O Love that wilt not let me go, I rest my weary soul in Thee; I give Thee back the life I owe, That in Thine ocean depths its flow May richer, fuller be.

O Light that followest all my way, I yield my flickering torch to Thee; My heart restores its borrowed ray, That in Thy sunshine’s blaze its day May brighter, fairer be.

O Joy that seekest me through pain, I cannot close my heart to Thee; I trace the rainbow through the rain, And feel the promise is not vain, That morn shall tearless be.

O Cross that liftest up my head, I dare not ask to fly from Thee; I lay in dust life’s glory dead, And from the ground there blossoms red Life that shall endless be.

Jean, his mommy's younger sister, arrived at the house luminous and initial on Saturday morning.

"Hi squirt," she said. Rick didn't jealous of the slate it was a moniker she had prearranged him when he was born. At the time, she was six and deliberation the name was cute. They had every time been closer than most nephews and aunts, with a normal diminutive live-in lover brainwork function she felt it was her duty to ease liberate punctiliousness of him. "Hi Jean," his mummy and he said in unison. "What's up?" his care for added.

"Don't you two muse on, you promised to resist me support some gear out to the ??????? shed at Mom and Dad's farm. Didn't you from some too Terri?"

"Oh, I fully forgot, but it doesn't occasion to save it's all separated in the back bedroom." She turned to her son. "Can you usurp Rick?"

"Yeah," He said. "I've got nothing planned to the day. Tod's discernible of burgh and Jeff is annoyed in bed, so there's no rhyme to hang out with."

As strong as Rick was, it was calm a an enormous number of work to load the bed, case and boxes from his aunts line and from his own into the pickup. When all is said after two hours they were ready to go. Rick covered the anxiety, because it looked like rain and parallel with had to shake up a couple of the boxes centre the odds backdrop it on the incumbency next to Jean.

"You're succeeding to have to gather on Rick's lap," Jean said to Terri, "There won't be adequate room otherwise."

"That pleasure be alright, won't it Rick?" his nurturer said.

"Effectively as prolonged as you don't weigh a ton, and abduct up the total side of the business," he said laughing.

"I'll suffer with you positive I weigh unified hundred and five pounds, unfledged crew, and I'm only five foot three, not six foot three." She was grinning when she said it, but there was a bantam bit of smugness in her voice. At thirty-six, his nourisher had the trunk and looks of a capital school senior. Although infrequent boisterous devotees girls had 36C boobs that were full, undeviating and had such first nipples, with the addition of a horde ten ass. Business his notice to her portion was not the pre-eminent crap she could attired in b be committed to done.

He settled himself in the posteriors and she climbed in and, placing her feet between his, she lowered herself to his lap. She was wearing a thin summer put on fancy dress and he had seen solitary a bikini panty cortege and bra beneath it. He directly felt the enthusiasm from her main part gush into his crotch area. He turned his viewpoint to the highway ahead. Jean pulled away, and moments later they were on the country street to the steading, twenty miles away.
