"Has not my hand made all these things,
and so they came into being?"
declares the LORD.
"This is the one I esteem:
he who is humble and contrite in spirit,
and trembles at my word."
Isaiah 66:2

When all is stripped away, that's what it is all about.

So aware of my black black heart.
Yet hopeful that the God who raised Christ from the dead is at work within me.

I have honestly never been in a service like todays church. Such honesty, such dealing with sin. Such family. Crying together. Praising Jesus. Crying. Praying, being ruthless. man. (or rather, God.)
