standing without, you can see no glory, nor can you
imagine any, but standing within, every ray of light reveals

a harmony of unspeakable splendors. "

When...

 "When my hope is gone, when my fear is strong.
When the pain is real, when it's hard to heal.
When my faith is shaken
and my heart is broken.
God I know that
You lift me up,
You never leave me thirsty."
-Kari Jobe-
