It is only in Him that the soul has room. In knowing Him is life and gladness. The secret of your own heart you can never know; but you can know Him who knows its secret.
— George MacDonald
The Seaboard Parish, Chapter 13
If every sunlit, sail crowded sea under blue heaven, flecked with wind chased white filled your soul, as with a new gift of life – think what sense of existence must be yours if He, whose thought has but fringed His garment with the gladness of such a show, were to make his home with you – and while thinking of the gladness of God inside your being, let you know and feel that He is carrying you as a Father in his bosom!
