Rejoicing in others

“In the KIngdom of God, there is no competition or rivalry.  The Son of God shares His chosen-ness with us.  In the Kingdom of God, each person is precious and unique, and each person has been given eyes to see the chosen-ness of others and rejoice in it.” Henri Nouwen

The steadfast love of the Lord

God never stops pursuing us, no matter how perilous our lives, our times may be. He yearns for our response; His faithful presence never ceases.

“You called, shouted, broke through my deafness;

you flared, blazed, banished my deafness;
you lavished your fragrance, I gasped,
  and now I pant for you;
I tasted you, and I hunger and thirst; 
you touched me and I burn for your peace.”
