“Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me?"
"Oh, blessed epilepsy! Would that every man in London could experience epilepsy like that!"
but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness…
Ananias ~ whom God has graciously given
in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;27in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness—
23bin labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often.24From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one.25Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep;26in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles,
7Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
The Hound of Heaven
I fled Him down the nights and down the days
I fled Him down the arches of the years
I fled Him down the labyrinthine ways
Of my own mind, and in the midst of tears

Up vistaed hopes I sped; and shot, precipitated,
Adown titanic glooms of chasmed fears
From those strong feet that followed, followed after
I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.
If you were the only person on earth that needed salvation and He still knew you would reject Him …
If you were the only person on earth …
If you were the only person on earth and He still knew you would reject Him …
… Jesus still would’ve come and died for your sins
