Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Nearer than our own soul

So when we sing, 'Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,' we are not thinking of the nearness of place, but of the nearness of relationship. It is for increasing degrees of awareness that we pray, for a more perfect consciousness of the divine Presence. We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts.
-A.W. Tozer

    Why, then, if he is so near, so close, I don't know that? I don't feel him. If he loves me that much why doesn't he just let me know? If we don't have to shout, then why does he drive us to it?

    I've learned the hard way so far this year that there are no answers to why He does what He does.
