Here are some excerpts from Sinai:
"The ability to question, the ability to take a skeptical position is absolutely central to my unerstanding of myself. It is very important to experience doubt. I think faith without doubt is either just nostalgia, or a kind of addiction." ~Mary Gordon
"Do I actually believe in the death sentance that was proclaimed of me (self) at Salvation's Endowment? Am I trying to tame what needs to die?"
"The only reason judgement exists is for forgiveness. When I know what I am being forgiven of (because of judgement - the law), redemption becomes valuable."
"When God bestows His annointing oil upon you, it will not matter whether they understood your dreams or not."
"As much as music was a part of David's life, as much as he loved it, and as skillful as he was at it ~ it was NOT what he was annointed for. BUT the annointing came as a result of a heart; a heart developed in the pouring out. The release in song."
"Dreams are questionable. Vague & allusive. But should a man, who has been established in reputation as faithful & trustworthy, who dreams a dream be considered quetionable as well? Only a Dreamer recognizes a Dreamer's value and a dream's worth."
"I am a history writer. There is history yet to be written."
"Am I in to win, or just to play?"
"The stronger I feel about something, the more it is loved, the more time, honor and devotion is dedicated to it. We become like what we focus on; where our delight is directed."
I know. It's all simple. It is just hitting me again. I'm so glad He speaks life - it makes it that much easier to die.
