• “A woman can become a blessing to many (even to the one who harms her) through what she has learnt of God in her sorrows! To become a woman of God, one must be prepared to face many trials. Like the sandalwood tree that imparts its fragrance to the axe that cuts it.” – Dr. Annie poonen

    Hi, I would like to know the story behind the song "Live out thy life within me", that why did she writte it? What was the motive if you do have some information about this. Thank you.

      Hi, Brother/sister, I do not know. I did try to look it up, but could not find it. The date that it was actually written is not even available. So information about this hymn seems to be unknown for the most part. However, I may try to look into it and other hymns some more. I am glad you brought it up. It is a wonderful piece. Thanks. Your sister in Christ, Michelle

    Hi - I wonder if you might pass this listing onto any who might be interested in Havergal's works. This is a rare 1st edition copy of Frances Ridley Havergal's "Under the Surface", 1834. It is in extraordinarily pristine shape. Thanks for your help. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Under-Surface-Frances-Ridley-Havergal-1834-J-Nisbet-Co-/180772247730?pt=Antiquarian_Collectible&hash=item2a16dd98b2 Liz

  • “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
