..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

T. Austin-Sparks on Christ Alone

T. Austin-Sparks writes,

As the age moves toward its consummation -
the manifestation of Christ - two features
will become increasingly evident. On the
one hand things, men, movements, institutions,
organizations, etc., will predominate and
draw multitudes after them, and will attach
the crowds to themselves. On the other hand,
with a growing disappointment and
disillusionment over these, a minority will
turn to the Lord Himself to find Him alone as
their life. --T. Austin-Sparks

Lord Jesus, be EVERYTHING in our hearts!
Lord, it is YOU ALONE that we desire and
hunger for. Dissallusion us with everything

I am so happy and blessed to have found a like-minded monastic sister who also reads these type of writers, as I have done for many years. I will keep you and your blog in my prayers.
