Enjoying God

MEDITATION:

Written by George Whitfield (1714-1770), an Anglican cleric and evangelist who was one of the founders of Methodism.

O! What heart can conceive, what tongue can express, with what unspeakable joy and consolation shall we then look back on our past sincere and hearty services. Think you then, my dear hearers, we shall repent we had done too much; and blush we were so backward to give up all to God; when he intended hereafter to give us himself? Let me…exhort you, my brethren, to have always before you the unspeakable happiness of enjoying God. And think withal, that every degree of holiness you neglect, every act of piety you omit, is a jewel taken out of your crown, a degree of blessedness lost in the vision of God. O! Do but always think and act thus, and you will no longer be laboring to compound matters between God and the world; but, on the contrary, be daily endeavoring to give up yourselves more and more unto him; you will be always watching, always praying, always aspiring after farther degrees of purity and love, and consequently always preparing yourselves for a fuller sight and enjoyment of that God, in whose presence there is fullness of joy, and at whose right-hand there are pleasures for ever more. Amen! Amen!

PRAYER:

Written by Rachel Wojnarowski, a contemporary Christian author.

This world seems to move faster and faster.

And I’m trying to keep up.

But God, in the whirlwind,

Instead I get caught up.

Like an unbeatable force it pulls me in

But I know eventually I cannot win.

I must learn to rest in your perfect peace

And though good, let all endeavors cease.

Oh that my feet would mimic your pace.

So your joy would be set on my face.

Help me, Jesus, to slow down when you would.

Help me, Lord, to rest as I should.

Thank you for loving me just as I am;

Thank you that rest is part of your plan.  Amen.
