Joy and Strength 02/22

Glory ye in His holy name; let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. Ps. cv. 3.

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke xii. 32.

I KNOW not what it is to doubt.
My heart is ever gay;
I run no risk, for come what will,
Thou always hast Thy way.
Frederick Wm. Faber.

THIS way of seeing our Father in everything makes life one long thanksgiving, and gives a rest of heart, and, more than that, a gayety of spirit, that is unspeakable. Some one says, “God’s will on earth is always joy, always tranquillity.” And since He must have His own way concerning His children, into what wonderful green pastures of inward rest, and beside what blessedly still waters of inward refreshment is the soul led that learns this secret. If the will of God is our will, and if He always has His way, then we always have our way also, and we reign in a perpetual kingdom. He who sides with God cannot fail to win in every encounter; and, whether the result shall be joy or sorrow, failure or success, death or life, we may, under all circumstances, join in the Apostle’s shout of victory, “Thanks be unto God which always causeth us to triumph in Christ!”
Hannah Whitall Smith

    ~ He knew you ~ A poem the Lord gave me to write 12-24-2019 Imagine creating the tree and Iron to. That when they hung him on that cross; He knew. He knew what it took to hold him there. It wasn't steel spikes but a love he shared. He Knew. He knew you. A carpenter knows his wood and chooses the right nails; He knows where to place them, that the flesh won't fail. He knew; He knew you. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak; To Keep a man from running; one nail thru both feet. He knew;He knew you. What kind of strength is that; that kept Him on that cross. How could any man suffer, so much of a loss. He knew; He knew you.

  • “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
