Thank you, God, for the wonderful gift of sight. I was out this sunny afternoon when I came across a flock of sheep with their lambs lying sheltering in the shade below a group of hawthorns all thickly laden with blossom— a miraculously beautiful thing. Richard
Thank you, Father God,
for the life of Ravi Zacharias (1946 – 2020) –
a wonderful Christian apologist – though that doesn’t seem quite the right word for such a positive present and defender of Christianity. Richard Toosey
“I came to Him because I did not know which way to turn.
I remained with Him because there is no other way I wish to turn.
I came to Him longing for something I did not have.
I remain with Him because I have something I will not trade.
I came to Him as a stranger.
I remain with Him in the most intimate of friendships.
I came to Him unsure about the future.
I remain with Him certain about my destiny.
I came amid the thunderous cries of a culture that has 330 million deities.
I remain with Him knowing that truth cannot be all-inclusive.”
