Time of Reflection Quotations
“The pleasure of seeing God is so great and so strong that it takes the full possession of the heart; it fills it brimful, so that there shall be no room for any sorrow, no room in any corner for anything of an adverse nature from joy. There is no darkness that can bear such powerful light.”
~Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), Puritan pastor and theologian
“Anything can serve as a counterfeit god, especially the very best things in life.”
~Tim Keller, contemporary pastor and author
“To see Jesus in glory will be the sight of God for which we have so long ached.”
~David Mathis, contemporary pastor and writer
“Hope is what you do when you can’t see into the future
See my hope is not a verb, my hope is found in a noun.”
~Lecrae Devaughn Moore (1979-present), America rapper and actor
“It is not my ability, but my response to God’s ability, that counts.”
~Corrie Ten Boom (1892-1983), writer and Holocaust survivor
Psalm 16 (ESV)
1 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.”
3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight.
4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips.
5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices;
my flesh also dwells secure.
10 For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol,
or let your holy one see corruption.
11 You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
