* Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of the next month and a half, I'm making a few minor changes to my schedule of posting. All posts will continue to be made daily and will consist of material that has not appeared before on this blog. However, because my time will be taken up by my final thesis defense for my Master of Church History degree and by a trip to the Holy Land, several of my ongoing series will be on hold until May.

- On Wednesdays, I'll be posting some of my original poems from my college years, and then in May my "Evangeliad" poems will resume.

- On Thursdays, my series on "How to Be Miserable in Your Christian Life" will wrap up by the end of March. That will conclude that series for now; however, if you enjoyed it, please let me know, because I may add more to it at some later point.

- And on Fridays, my "Glimpses of Grace" series will be on hiatus until May. In the meantime, it will be replaced with a serialized, unpublished novella that I wrote back in 2005, "Worth It All." Beginning in the first week of May, "Glimpses of Grace" will return, this time in the Thursday slot, and a newly-composed adventure novel will be posted on Fridays.

From Grace unto Grace

From grace unto grace I trust Thee,

Though I know not where it leads.

You have heard my song,

Which no one else may hear,

The sacred sound of all I am.

Keep Thou well its secret,

O Faithful Fount of all my grace.

Shine on me, that I may shine,

Or if unshining,

Let me rest in Thee.

Still these broken qualms

And make them tremors of Thy love—

Thy love, and mine.

Lord, I am so full,

But the channel is so narrow.

Widen it, O Endless and Sublime,

And awaken Thou my love

For all that stir Your heart.

Let them hear whispers of Your smile

In all my hidden ways.

You who are my peace,

Make of me Your peace for them,

Until all Thy fullness

And all my fullness

Is all and ever full for them.
