been wanting power in my own hand, so to speak, that I might say — look what I have by putting my
all on the altar.

earth. Glory be to God, the last aching abyss of the human heart is filled to overflowing with the
love of God. Love is the beginning, love is the middle and love is the end. After He comes in, all
