“Make me a captive, Lord,
And then I shall be free;
Force me to render up my sword,
And I shall conqueror be.
I sink in life’s alarms
When by myself I stand;
Imprison me within Thine arms,
And strong shall be my hand.”—George Matheson
My life is but a weaving, between my God and me
I do not choose the colors, He worketh steadily.
Oftimes He weaveth sorrow, and I in foolish pride,
Forget He sees the upper, and I the underside.
Not till the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why,
The dark threads are as needful in the skillful Weaver’s hand,
As the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.
“I count everything as loss, compared to the possession of the PRICELESS PRIVILEGE—the overwhelming PRECIOUSNESS, the surpassing WORTH and supreme advantage—of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, and of progressively becoming MORE DEEPLY and intimately acquainted WITH HIM.”—Philippians 3:8, AMPLIFIED
Looking forward to seeing and supporting this film. I have no doubt it will bring back memories of my experiences in a secular high school and college, defending the Christian faith versus atheism/ evolution.
Veil of Tears is the gripping new documentary film narrated by Natalie Grant that tells the untold story of millions of women in India who are culturally persecuted for no other reason than the fact that they are women.
I will never forget when I had the opportunity for three solid hours to listen to, pray and worship with these women. Shortly after my team left, the women were to go off to their prostitution jobs in which they were enslaved.
“When I thought God was hard, I found it easy to sin; but when I found God so kind, so good, so overflowing with compassion, I smote upon my breast to think that I could ever have rebelled against One who loved me so, and sought my good.”—Charles H. Spurgeon
