What no eye has seen

 

 

this morning i came across this verse in 1 corinthians 2:9 “what no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what god has prepared for those who love him” that verse gives me an excited feeling! and it reminded me a quote from c.s lewis’ mere christianity that our pastor read on sunday that i just love!

“god will invade.

but i wonder whether people who ask god to interfere openly and directly in our world quite realise what it will be like when he does. when that happens, it is the end of the world. when the author walks on to the stage, the play is over.

god is going to invade, all right: but what is the good of saying you are on his side then, when you see the whole natural universe melting away like a dream and something else – something it never entered your head to conceive – comes crashing in; something so beautiful to some of us and so terrible to others that none of us will have any choice left?

for this time it will be god without disguise; something so overwhelming that it will strike either irresistible love or irrestistible horror into every creature. it will be too late then to choose your side. there is no use saying you choose to lie down when it has become impossible to stand up. that will not be the time for choosing; it will be the time when we discover which side we really have chosen, whether we realised it before or not. now, today, this moment, is our chance to choose the right side. god is holding back to give us that chance. it will not last forever. we must take it or leave it.”

you can watch the sermon here if you like..

    Recently just discovered you and your girlyfriends – both blogs in the same day! So naturally, I read them both completely. It was soooo inspirational. I love that you're outward with your faith. Please always do that, no matter what any other blogger or reader tells you. LOVE. A style blog is fun to read but empty – – your blog is NOT empty. And Jesus loves it, too!!! Also, I think it's spectacular that as I was reading, I actually came across images (clothing style or hair style) that I've previously Pinned that were YOU! Like from a long time ago! Ha. Here you had an awesome blog all along. Happy day! So, I love your style, I realize you're human and love that, too, and wanted to say THANK YOU for sharing with us. My husband says thanks for the American Apparel cardigan recommendation because I ordered that this morning (not really, but it wasn't too terribly expensive). Love, love, love the style. Please keep it up. And your hair length now is killer, Girl. Love. Can't wait to watch you grow into being a mama. God bless you all.

    I just stumbled upon your blog, it's beautiful. these posts have inspired me to maybe not post a weekly verse, but to sit down and memorize one weekly. Thank you!

    I'm going to be following along with your blog.
    xo, Samantha
