God

The Road Home – Emerald Depths

It is when we notice the dirt that God is most present in us;
it is the very sign of His presence.
C.S. Lewis

And out of that hopeless attempt has come nearly all that we call human history —
money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery —
the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God
which will make him happy.
C.S. Lewis

My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust.
But how had I got this idea of just and unjust?
A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line.
What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?
C.S. Lewis

The irony is that while God doesn’t need us but still wants us,
we desperately need God but don’t really want Him most of the time.
Francis Chan

It might be a good idea if, like the White Queen,
we practiced believing six impossible things every morning before breakfast,
for we are called on to believe what to many people is impossible.
Instead of rejoicing in this glorious “impossible” which gives meaning and dignity to our lives,
we try to domesticate God,
to make his mighty actions comprehensible to our finite minds.
Madeleine L’Engle

What the soul hardly realizes is that, unbeliever or not,
his loneliness is really a homesickness for God.
Dom Hubert Van Zeller

  1. I love all of the quotes Jonie, but the second one and the very last one really spoke to me, so much truth in them.
