Romans 11:33-36

"Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowlede of God!

How unsearchable His judgements, and His paths beyond tracing out!

'Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?'

'Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?'

For from him and through him and to him are all things.

To him be the glory forever! Amen."

-Romans 11:33-36

"Few disciples ever felt their own nothingness as she did, and it was this ornament of a meek and quiet spirit- the only ornament she wore- that made her seem so beautiful to all who knew her well enough for this 'hidden man of the heart' to be disclosed to their vision. Did not that ornament in the Lord's sight appear as of great price? Truly "the beauty of the Lord her God was upon her."

Written of Lydia Mueller Wright by A.T. Pierson

What sweet and lovely delight in her soul she must have had, having lost herself in Him in such a way.
