In recent days I have stayed busy pressing on a writing task, complicated by my wife's weekend in the hospital. These are tough times for everybody, times when it sometimes becomes difficult for the tough to stay up and going. Amid all the tasks of life, it is so important that we occasionally take out what my friend Jakeway once called "Sixty Seconds for the Soul."
To be truly renewed is what Jesus described to Nicodemus as being "born again'" (John 3). To be truly born again one must be born from above. That brings me to the following verse I found recently in an old volume.
As one who takes serious hope in the Christian faith, this brief verse by A. L. Murray beautifully catches poetically what is the very essence of our faith. Murray, a prolific devotional writer of earlier years, describes this work done by Christ in his few lines entitled: "FOUND ME
Christ found me broken;
Made me whole.
Built new windows
In my soul.
And redesigned me
To His plan,
Image of God and SON OF MAN."
May these lines touch your heart as they touched mine, and may you experience renewal in these redefining days.
