Oswald Chambers said...

"Be rightly related to God, find your joy there, and out of you will flow rivers of living water. Be a center for Jesus Christ to pour living water through. Stop being self-conscious, stop being a sanctified prig, and live the life hid with Christ. The life that is rightly related to God is as natural as breathing wherever it goes. The lives that have been of most blessing to you are those who were unconscious of it."

And let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years...

I recently read The Stars Speak, by Stewart Custer. I'm generally not into astronomy and telescopes, but I learned some interesting things. One thing I never really thought about was the word signs in Genesis 1:14.

Genesis 1:14-19 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

I was looking for some star pictures, and came across this extremely interesting website:
Basically, this author goes through and tells the ancient names and meanings for Leo the Lion, Hercules, the Twins, etc, drawing parallels with Biblical prophecies. He has a lot of very amazing ideas. I didn't read the entire book (I wish I had it in paper format - I don't really like reading entire books on-line), but what I did read was really cool. The thought of God putting the entire story of Salvation in the sky for people to see each night is incredible.

Amy Carmichael is one of my favorite authors, and I was excited to read this article about her: http://www.boundless.org/2005/articles/a0002102.cfm#share
I also want to "make Scripture an integral part of my writing and even of my thoughts; to read it, to memorize it, and ever thereafter to breathe it." And I too have noticed that "Amy's writing quotes Scripture seemingly without knowing it. Everything in life is illustrated, illuminated, touched by the Word of God." I wish to be able to speak to people as she did, with God's Word a part of me.
