Lost in His Love

Been MIA again due to being sick last week.  



But we’re all doing better now!   If that is the worst we’ll have this winter, I can take it!  (Since last winter was whooping cough!!!!)



What do you think of when you hear of the Puritans?  Stuffy?  No life?  Boring?



Then you haven’t read the beautiful prayers in The Valley of Vision!!!



I found this treasure through Ann Voskamp, and put it on my Christmas list.  Anna got it for me, and I just last night got it out to start reading some of the prayers.



I read several!!!!



They are full of life, NOT boring, NOT stuffy, and full of an ardent love for our Savior!   Just beautiful!



Here is just a paragraph from the selection, "The Love of Jesus":


My heart melts at the love of Jesus,

     my brother, bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh,

     married to me, dead for me, risen for me;

He is mine and I am his,

     given to me as well as for me;

I am never so much mine as when I am his,

     or so much lost to myself until lost in him;

     then I find my true manhood.

But my love is frost and cold, ice and snow;

Let his love warm me,

                     lighten my burden,

                     be my heaven;

May it be more revealed to me in all its influences

    that my love to him may be more fervent and glowing;

Let the mighty tide of his everlasting love

   cover the rocks of my sin and care;

Then let my spirit float above those things

   which had else wrecked my life.

This one line really spoke to me last night:



….or so much lost to myself until lost in him;…..



How often do we try to "deny self" or "put self on the cross"…..all focused on the negative….


…when all I have to do is lose myself….



 in Him.
