No good thing will He withhold

No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. — Psalm 84:11

Be happy in Him, O my heart, and in nothing but God, for whatever a man trusts in, from that he expects happiness. He who is the ground of they faith should be the substance of thy joy. —Valley of Vision

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, `Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.' Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long. —A. W. Tozer

It is sweet to be nothing and have nothing, and to be fed with crumbs from the hand of my God. —Valley of Vision

Whoever is not satisfied with Christ alone, strives after something beyond absolute perfection. - John Calvin

A few thoughts from wise men who have gone before me, thoughts that turn my heart, once again, to the God of salvation, the One who satisfies all longings.

And as a side note, I recently came across a workshop for Christian Photographers called "For the Love Workshop." It will be held in Knoxville, TN on February 8-12, 2010. It looks absolutely amazing, and I think that anyone who can should try and attend. Spaces are limited to 40 attendants, so register soon, if you want to go! I really want to... but I'm still praying about whether or not I should. We'll see.
