lower still

Come, oh come! let us away--
Lower, lower every day, 
Oh, what joy it is to race
Down to find the lowest place. 
This the dearest law we know--
"It is happy to go low."
Sweetest urge and sweetest will,
"Let us go down lower still."
Hear the summons night and day
Calling us to come away.
Hannah Hurnard - The Water Song
Hinds Feet on High Places

lower still
strip pride away
till I can in stillness sit 
beside my Lord
simple, humble
no thought of self
but all of Him

No thought of me--just my Heavenly Father. Sounds like worship to me. Communion. I love to sit in His presence--just sit!

One of my favorite books! I loved what you added - a bit of whitespace. Have a blessed weekend!

Been way toooo long since I've read that book. Used to love it way back then. Nice to see how you chose the piece and chose the photo. Thanks much!
