Deep and Wide

To You they cried out and were delivered;
In You they trusted and were not disappointed.
Psalm 22:5 NASB
There is a wideness in God's mercy like the wideness of the sea. . .
For the love of God is broader than the measure of our mind. . .
If our love were but more simple, we should rest upon God's Word;
and our lives would be illumined by the presence of our Lord.
by Fredrick W. Faber, 1854
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39 ESV
