Partial Puritan Prayer

I don’t like the terms head and heart. I think faith and reason often makes more sense. So I especially liked this portion of a Puritan prayer from The Valley of Vision called Belonging To Jesus.

I thank thee for showing me the vast difference
between knowing things by reason,
and knowing them by the spirit of faith.
By reason I see a thing is so;
by faith I know it as it is.
I have seen thee by reason,
and have not been amazed,
I have seen thee as thou art in thy Son and have
been ravished to behold thee.
I bless thee that I am thine in my Saviour, Jesus.

The blogging drought continues. I’ve been spending more time reading my Bible, so I’ll blame it on that for now, even though it doesn’t prevent me from blogging. I’ve never realized that there are so many short chapters in the Bible.
