• “Every delay in the answers to our prayers is also planned by God to give us something better than what we asked for.” – Annie Poonen

“Fellowship with Christ” by Mrs. J. C. Yule

To pray as Jesus prayed,
When faithless brethren sleep,–
To weep the ruin sin has made–
The only ones that weep,–
To bear the heavy cross,–
To toil, yet murmur not,–
To suffer pain, reproach, and loss,–
Be such our earthly lot.

Yet oh, how richly blest
The Master’s cup to share,–
The aching grief that wrung His breast,–
His broken-hearted prayer,–
If thus we may but gain
One sheaf of golden wheat
Gleaned from Earth’s sultry harvest-plain,
To lay at His dear feet!–

If thus we may but win
One precious earthly gem
Snatched from the mire of vice and sin,
For His rich diadem!–
Here, sorrow, patience, prayer;
In Heaven, the rich reward!
Here, the sharp thorns, the cross,–and there
“Forever with the Lord”!

  • “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon

Verse of the Day
