I am sure as I live that nothing is so near to me as God. God is nearer to me than I am to myself.
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
The King James Version
If we only saw the whole, we should see that the Father is doing little else in the world but training his vines.
Robert Murray M’Cheyne
