“While all acts of generosity are divine, perhaps it is the small touch, the personal touch, that elevates the season’s pleasures high above the realm of obligation.” –Arlene Hamilton Stewart, A Woman’s Christmas
“As we cease from self, and our soul becomes still to God, God will arise and show Himself… Then you shall ‘know that I am God.’
“There is no stillness like the stillness Jesus gives when He speaks, ‘Peace, be still.’ In Christ, in His death, and in His life, in His perfected redemption, the soul may be still, and God will come in, and take possession, and do His perfect work.” – Andrew Murray, Waiting on God
Two aims I have, this first day of this last month, for each day’s pilgrimage on toward Christ’s Day:
~one small touch, that points to beauty, serenity, glory of God.
~one small piece of time aside, to quiet and think on the Christ’s arriving, a moment reserved apart, for my soul to die again to self, to “wait in silence,” to “wait only upon God.”
“My soul, be thou still only unto God!”
