Re-Release Blitz: Lords of Sin: Redemption by Angel Payne

A damned dream…

He watches her every night, rehearsing alone in his theater, her beauty aglow in the gaslights. With every hour that passes, Marcus Stafford is more entranced with the passionate Gabriela Rozina, and the dream she refuses to give up. 1,288 more words

You told me there would be silences,

You told me Your flow was warm,

Little and Nothing

To be little in his sight is not enough; we must be nothing – this is the foundation upon which he would build… The greater our annihilation, the loftier the building he erects thereon.

I think this is why broken people seem to respond to God in a way that others can't. Whether their brokenness is self-inflicted (by which I mean they have made poor choices) or whether life has just been too cruel, when you're brought so low that there's nothing left, you realise how much you need God and how you can't even stand up without Him. This is why Jesus' words in the beatitudes are so wonderfully true, although they seem counter-intuitive. I'm sitting typing with my new Open University textbooks beside me, just about to begin the next module in statistics and probability. The more I learn of statistics, the more I realise how little statisticians actually *know*. But I still fall in love more and more with the numbers and the 'truths' they demonstrate. In a way, this mirrors my spiritual life. I'm making no sense(!) but I thank God for all that I have been through because it's only in darkness that you can see the light. I don't ask for more suffering and I don't desire more suffering, but I know that without the suffering I wouldn't know God and I know that my deepest desire has always been to know Him. Lord, You are everything. Fill my nothing.

'You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.'
