How blessed is my condition!

(Gleanings from the Inner Life of Ruth Bryan)

This is just the experience I love — willing to be nothing, that Christ may be all in all.

How blessed is my condition!
Though so vile a sinner in myself; yet chosen and beloved in Christ from all eternity — every blessing for time, all glory for eternity — secured to me in Him!
Himself my blissful portion!
Himself my endless treasure!
Himself my ocean of love, my God and my glory!

My Lord, these hands and feet, this heart and tongue, and my whole self — afresh I consecrate to You. Oh, to spend and be spent in service for Your glory!
