Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

All I need

Oh, my precious Savior! You are all I need 
for time and for eternity. You are . . .
  my rest in weariness,
  my ease in pain,
  my strength in weakness. 

Is anything too hard for the Lord? 

Is anything too small for the Lord? 

Is anything too great or heavy for the Lord? 


My beloved and my adorable Lord, I fall into 
Your arms for support, guidance, and blessing. 

Indeed, I am unworthy of the least of Your 
mercies, and I feel it. But Your mercies are 
free! Oh, the wonders of Your love, that can 
bear with such weakness and wanderings as 
mine! I worship and adore You, and would 
joyfully sink into Love's unfathomable abyss, 
where sins and self are lost!

Oh! my precious Savior, how blessed is Your 
presence amidst the storms of this weary land! 
How does all that is of earth recede before the 
overshadowings of Your presence! Precious Lord, 
draw me more and more into Your secret chamber, 
where worldling never came, where the flesh was 
never fed.

Quote: "...where worldling never came, where the flesh was never fed."

I have to agree heartily with that.

Starve the flesh, feed the spirit.
