• “He would not have me a spoilt child, therefore He has employed the rod; but all His corrections and rebukes have been in love.” – Mary Winslow

December 10 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Behold, we count them happy which endure.–JAMES v. 11.
If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons.–HEB. xii. 7.

Trials must and will befall; But with humble faith to see Love inscribed upon them all, This is happiness to me.
W. COWPER.
Be not afraid of those trials which God may see fit to send upon thee. It is with the wind and storm of tribulation that God separates the true wheat from the chaff. Always remember, therefore, that God comes to thee in thy sorrows, as really as in thy joys. He lays low, and He builds up. Thou wilt find thyself far from perfection, if thou dost not find God in everything.
M. DE MOLINOS.
God hath provided a sweet and quiet life for His children, could they improve and use it; a calm and firm conviction in all the storms and troubles that are about them, however things go, to find content, and be careful for nothing.
R. LEIGHTON.

  • “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”
