If you are looking for something short and simple yet profound for devotional reading, may I suggest you get “The Valley of Vision?” While on my retreat one of my friends suggested it and I am being blessed more than anything I’ve read in years devotionallly. Click here if you’d like to consider purchasing it.
Here is a portion of today’s reading from The Great God…
“Oh fountain of all good… Destroy in me ever lofty thought, Break pride to pieces and scatter it to the winds, Annihilate each clinging shred of self righteousness, Implant in me lowliness of spirit… Break me then bind me up;
“Thus will my heart be a prepared dwelling for my God; Then the Father can take up His abode with me, Then can the blessed Jesus come with healing in His touch, Then can the Holy Spirit decend with sanctifying grace;
“Let the angels sing for: sinners repenting, prodigals restored, backsliders reclaimed, Satan’s captives released, blind eyes opened, broken hearts bound up, the despondent cheered, the self righteous stripped, the formalist driven from a refuge of lies, the ignorant enlightened, and the saints built up in their holy faith.
“I ask great things of God.”
The depth and meaning of these writings, each only a page or so, is full of spirituality that will nourish your soul.
