Many there are who carry out this principle in some measure; but who is there that dare say that he hath lived wholly for Christ as the apostle did? Yet, this alone is the true life of a Christian--its source, its sustenance, its fashion, its end, all gathered up in one word--Christ Jesus. Lord, accept me; I here present myself, praying to live only in thee and to thee.
Let me be as the bullock which stands between the plough and the altar, to work or to be sacrificed; and let my motto be, "Ready for either.
My spouse, nearest and dearest, united to me by the tenderest bands of love; my sweet companion, part of my own self. My sister, by my Incarnation, which makes me bone of thy bone and flesh of thy flesh; my spouse, by heavenly betrothal, in which I have espoused thee unto myself in righteousness.He’s Stringing You Along? Text Him This Now... (Matthew Hussey, Get The Guy)
My sister, whom I knew of old, and over whom I watched from her earliest infancy; my spouse, taken from among the daughters, embraced by arms of love, and affianced unto me forever.

It shakes the cedars; it rocks the wilderness; it strips the forests bare. The voice of the Lord is full of majesty, power, and glory. Who can stand in the presence of the almighty voice of God? Who wants to stand before such an awesome God?
It would be like trying to compose yourself after lightning strikes with ear-splitting thunder so close that your bones rattle and your knees wobble. Such a "voice," such a rattling, you do not desire to hear again. This I know of myself independent of any other person.
I am one of his witnesses, and in a coming day I shall feel the nail marks in his hands and in his feet and shall wet his feet with my tears. I promise that He stands ready to receive you.
Over time you will come to see that you have made the best choice you could possibly have made. Your courageous decision to believe in Him will bless you immeasurably and forever.
