• “Christ makes it clear that we cannot love both Him and the things that charm and ravish this world. We cannot be dazzled by the images of pop-culture and captivated by the King of all kings” – Leslie Ludy

Joy and Strength 02/26

Do not I fill heaven and earth, saith the Lord. Jer.xxiii. 24

Let me not dwell so much within
My bounded heart, with anxious heed —
Where all my searches meet with sin,
And nothing satisfies my need —
It shuts me from the sound and sight
Of that pure world of life and light.
Anna L. Waring

Do you think that the infinite God cannot fill and satisfy your heart?
FRANCOIS DE LA MOTHE FENELON

Let not cares, riches, pleasures of this world choke the heart, which was formed to contain the love of God. Pray, and all is thine. Thine is God Himself, who teacheth thee to pray for Himself. To pray is to go forth from earth, and to live in Heaven.
Edward B. Pusey

The vision of God is indeed the transfiguration of the world; communion with God is the inspiration of life. That vision, that communion, Christ by His coming has made our abiding inheritance. As often as the Christian touches heaven, the heaven which lies about us though our eyes are holden that we should not see it, he is again filled with the powers of the world to come. Then reverence finds its perfect satisfaction; then devotion finds its invincible strength.

  • “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

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV)
