Finally today....

Final words today are from Brennan Manning.....from Ruthless Trust.

"Home is where the heart is. Home is a place of welcoming love, nonjudgmental acceptance, kisses, and hospitality - elements that induce a profound sense of belonging."

"Make your home in me, as I make mine in you" (John 15:4).

"If anyone loves me he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we shall come to him and make our home with him" (John 14:23).

"You realize, don't you, that you are the temple of God, and God himself is present in you?" (1 Cor. 3:16).

"Your body, you know, is a sacred place, the place of the Holy Spirit" (1 Cor. 6:19).

"The stupendous mystery of the indwelling triune God! Ruthless trust is choosing to be a homebody. As you exhale breath throughout the day, let AH be a simple reminder of your true domicile. My gracious Lord has shown me that the best way to strip fear of its awesome power is to be a homebody, to stay home in the palace of Nowhere."

God, I love this man's thoughts and writing! He writes of those things my heart holds close and treasured. He stumbles through this life holding on to the Hand of God with a grip that is loose and tentative but in truth .... will never release.

And so ends the ramblings of this saint for today. In Him, I remain.
