Adoration 7 March 2009

Madame Guyon (Jeanne Marie Guyon) experienced a spiritual awakening that changed her life permanently. She remained a true, born again believer in the Lord until her death.

Madame Guyon
(Jeanne Marie Guyon)
(1648 1717)

I love my God, but with no love of mine,
For I have none to give;
I love thee, Lord, but all that love is thine
For by thy life I live.
I am as nothing, and rejoice to be
Emptied and lost and swallowed up in thee.

Thou, Lord, alone, art all thy children need
And there is none beside;
From thee the streams of blessedness proceed;
In thee the blest abide,
Fountain of life and all-abounding grace,
Our source, our center and our dwelling-place!

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
