Bernard: deep calls unto deep

Sunday, May 3, 2015
Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls;
    all your waves and breakers have swept over me.
    —Psalm 42:7 (NIV)
    O my God, deep calls unto deep. The deep of my profound misery calls to the deep of Your infinite mercy.
    ... Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153), The Love of God, and Spiritual Friendship, ed. James Houston, Multnomah Press, 1983, p. 107 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 42:7; 57:10; 107:1; 108:4; Luke 1:50; Acts 3:19-20; Rom. 11:32; 1 Cor. 2:10; Eph. 2:4-5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have heard my cry and shown Your mercy.
