• “There’s a big difference between a life that’s a performance, and a life that’s an offering — One holds us captive. The other sets us free.” – Susie Larson

I Am Beside You – God Calling 11/04

In thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11

Do not seek to realize this fullness of Joy as the result of effort. This cannot be, any more than Joy in a human friend’s presence would come as the result of trying to force yourself to like to have that friend with you.

Call often My Name, “Jesus.”

The calling of My Name does not really summon Me. I am beside you. But it removes, as it were, the scales from your eyes and you see Me.

It is, as it were, the pressure of a loved one’s hand, that brings an answering pressure, and a thrill of Joy follows, a real, and a joyful sense of nearness.

Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free Spirit. Psalm 51:12

  • “Experience has taught me that the Shepherd is far more willing to show His sheep the path than the sheep are to follow. He is endlessly merciful, patient, tender, and loving. If we, His stupid and wayward sheep, really want to be led, we will without fail be led. Of that I am sure.” – Elisabeth Elliot
