God Within

"God is within. And where he dwells, there is a holy place....a hushed and holy Presence, too sacred to be destroyed, too wonderful not to be visited continually.

There is something awful, that is, awe-inspiring, down at the depths of our own soul. In hushed silence attend to it. It is a whisper of God himself, particularizing himself for you and in you, and speaking to the world through you."

(The Sanctuary of the Soul by Thomas Kelly, p. 38)


  1. Pam, I didn't know you've been writing on your blog again.

    And my, those I LOVE this one!

    I'm linking this to my F/B.

  2. PS, May I use it for my Sunday posting? I'd like to share it with my other friends!

  3. Yes Brenda, I've meaning to tell you ~ your words nudged me to start writing again. :) And by all means you are free to use this. He has some more good nuggets I want to post.

  4. Pam, I zeroed in on that phrase as well "particularizing himself with you and in you"....... that is so intimate!

    BTW, this morning during worship, I was dancing with Him..... and the song that was being sung at the time, I'd sing the verse to Him, and then we'd join and sing the chorus to each other. It was so cool! I was in it!

    PS.... I'm glad you're picking up pen (or keyboard) to write again!! I'm looking forward to the treasures you share with us.

  5. He is such an intimate God, Brenda, if we will allow him to be. He certainly longs for it...it is we who hold back until we get to know him and his true nature, and his heart toward us.

    I loved hearing how you danced with him this morning...talk about intimacy! What a beautiful experience to be in his arms dancing and singing to each other! Love it!!

    p.s. The growing stirrings to write again feel good.... :)


Thank you so much for taking time to visit...I love hearing from you!
