The soul that loves God has its rest in God and in God alone. In all the paths that men walk in in the world, they do not attain peace until they draw nigh to hope in God.

It is however quite clear that the Bible does not aim to present a scientific account of the origins of the universe and it is rather naive to base one’s argument on a literal understanding of the Biblical Narative. Scripture regards all history from the perspective of the intterelationship between the human and divine. The authors of the Biblical narative often use metaphor and symbolic language and although they inevitably rely on the scientific knowledge of their own time, this does not diminish the significance of the Bible as a book through which God speaks to Humanity and reveals himself in all his creative power.
— p52, Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev, ‘The Mystery of Faith. (via theorthodoxbritreturns)

By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.
