• “They only did what God permitted them to do, which enabled me always to keep God in sight… When we suffer, we should always remember that God inflicts the blow. Wicked men, it is true, are not infrequently His instruments; and the fact does not diminish, but simply develops their wickedness. But when we are so mentally disposed that we love the strokes we suffer, regarding them as coming from God, and as expressions of what He sees best for us, we are then in the proper state to look forgivingly and kindly upon the subordinate instrument which He permits to smite us.” – Madame Guyon

Another Year Is Dawning By Frances Ridley Havergal

“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).

Another year is dawning:
Dear Father, let it be,
In working or in waiting,
Another year with Thee;


Another year of progress,

Another year of praise,
 Another year of proving
 Thy presence all the days. 


Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness
 In the shining of Thy face; 


Another year of leaning
Upon Thy loving breast;
Another year of trusting,
Of quiet, happy rest.


 Another year of service,
Of witness for Thy love;
Another year of training
For holier work above. 


Another year is dawning:
Dear Father, let it be,
On earth or else in heaven,
Another year for Thee. 


Amen.

  • “I entreat you, give no place to despondency. This is a dangerous temptation–a refined, not a gross temptation of the adversary. Melancholy contracts and withers the heart, and renders it unfit to receive the impressions of grace. It magnifies and gives a false colouring to objects, and thus renders your burdens too heavy to bear. God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of bringing about these designs, are infinitely wise.” – Madame Guyon
