069. Obedience & Godlight

"A conscious being is either obeying God or disobeying Him."

"You do not fail in obedience through lack of love, 
but have lost love because you never attempted obedience.

"This is the courtesy of Deep Heaven: that when you mean well, 
He always takes you to have meant better than you knew
It will not be enough for always. He is very jealous. 
He will have you for no one but Himself in the end. 
But for tonight, it is enough"

~C.S. Lewis, That Hideous Strength

"Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun 
which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. 
These pure and spontaneous pleasures are 'patches of Godlight' 
in the woods of our experience."

~C.S. Lewis, Letters to Malcolm

  1. The analogy of a patch of sunlight in the woods rings true.
