Father reached downward
from heights unknown
surrounded by angels
this first free-will creation
cherished moment
heart searching to love
a romance
penned only by the watchful eyes of God
overwhelmed by tender, helpless, lonely man.

Isaac of Ninevah
Outward Expressions of Prayer
Isaac of N. claims that reverential outward postures are conducive to one’s inward progress towards pure prayer. It is not God who needs external signs of reverence; rather, a reverential outward posture is necessary for us so that we may be trained in attitude to God.

Quote from Isaac of Nineveh
"Any man that delights in a multitude of words, even though he says admirable words, is empty within. if you love truth, love silence. Silence, like the sun, will illuminate you in God."

I'm amazed once again with supernatural timing as I read these words in Isaiah 35:4
Say to those who are fearful-hearted (me)
"Be strong- do not fear!
Behold your God will come with vengence
(Everyone needs an angry God at some point. I remember when my brother (a foot taller than me) saved me from a 2nd grade jerk.))
With the recompense of God. (He will give the devil what due him.)
He WILL come and save you (emphasis mine)
Then the eyes of the blind (my beloved son) will see.
The ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
