I don't normally listen to this sort of stuff, but it has a cool vibe to it. Plus, you have to recognise talent when you see...this guy can sure play.

Valley of Vision - 2

I feel compelled to share more quotes with you from this great book. I shall continue to commend it to all people that happen to read this blog, however it needs no more preamble from the me...

''Infinite wisdom cast the design of salvation
into the mould of purchase and freedom;
Let wrath deserved bye written on the door of hell
But the the free gift of grace on the gate of heaven
I know that my sufferings are the result of my sinning,
but in heaven both shall cease;
Grant me to attain this haven and be done with sailing,
and may the gales of thy mercy blow me safely into harbour.
Let thy love draw me nearer to thyself,
wean me fron sin, mortify me to this world,
and make me ready for my departure hence.
Secure by thy grace as I sail across this stormy sea.''

Valley of Vision

After finishing work today I was overwhelming frustrated with just everything...and I have finally come to admit I am one of these persons who become very easily frustrated. However, thanks to this great little book I just purchased, 'Valley of Vision', I was able to gain a bit of perspective on my very small troubles and trivialities.

I would certainly reccommend this collection of Puritan Prayers; its a wonderfully unique and simple book. This quote speaks with such clarity and forth rightness...

''O Lord God, who inhabitest eternity
The heavens declare thy glory,
The earth thy riches,
The universe is thy temple,
Yet thou hast of thy pleasure created life, and communicated
Thoust hast made me what I am, and given me what I have,
In thee I live and love and have thy being,
Thy providence has set the bounds of my habitation,
and wisely administers all my affairs.
I thank thee for all thy riches to me in Jesus.''
