The mystery of God hugs you in its all-encompassing arms.— Hildegard of Bingen
Jaw-dropping Intimacies quotations

They are heart problems. They are God problems. Our lack of intimacy with God causes a void that we try to fill with the frailest of substitutes. Like wealth or pleasure. Like fame or respect. Like people. Like marriage.
In every friendship hearts grow and entwine themselves together, so that the two hearts seem to make only one heart with only a common thought. That is why separation is so painful; it is not so much two hearts separating, but one being torn asunder.
God's timing is always perfect. Trust His delays. He's got you.

If your life does not worship God, your lips do not worship God either.
The reason for my painting large canvases is that I want to be intimate and human. To paint a small picture is to place yourself outside your experience, to look upon an experience as a stereopticon view or with a reducing glass. However you paint the larger picture, you are in it. It isn't something you command.
Worship does not satisfy our hunger for God; it whets our appetite.
