Life Come Awake - Quotations Thursday

"Let us in all the troubles of life remember that our one lack is LIFE-- that what we need is more life -- more of the life making presence in us making us more, and more largely, ALIVE. When most weary of "life," as our unbelief would phrase it, let us remember that it is, in fact, the inroad and presence of death we are weary of. When most inclined to sleep, let us rouse ourselves to LIVE. Of all things let us avoid the false refuge of a weary collapse, a hopeless yielding to things as they are... He has the victory who, in the midst of pain and weakness cries out, not for the repose of forgetfulness, but for strength to fight, for more power, more consciousness of being, more God in Him... Eternal life is life come awake."

-- George MacDonald
