Scripture: Philippians 1:3-11
“I wish you’d see yourself as beautiful as I see you. Why can’t you see yourself as beautiful as I see you?”
The Avett Brothers, “Will You Return?”
“This life, therefore, is
not righteousness but growth in righteousness,
not health but healing,
not being but becoming,
not rest but exercise.
We are not what we shall be, but we are growing toward it.
The process is not yet finished, but it is going on;
This is not the end, but it is the road.
All does not gleam in glory, but all is being purified.”
“Oh! I am my beloved’s
And my beloved is mine!
He brings a poor vile sinner
Into His house of wine
I stand upon His merit
I know no other stand
Not e’en where glory dwelleth
In Emmanuel’s land.”
Anne Cousin, “The Sands of Time are Sinking”
