A sense of the divine presence and indwelling bears the soul towards heaven as upon the wings of eagles.  At such times, we are full to the brim with spiritual joy and forget the cares and sorrows of earth.  The invisible is near and the visible loses its power over us.  The servant-body waits at the foot of the hill and the master-spirit worships upon the summit in the presence of the Lord.  O, that a hallowed sense of divine communion may be vouchsafed to me this evening!  The Lord knows that I need it very greatly. – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a meditation on Ezekiel 33.22.
