• “I think of the love of God as a great river, pouring through us even as the waters pour through our ravine at floodtime. Nothing can keep this love from pouring through us, except of course our own blocking of the river. Do you sometimes feel that you have got to the end of your love for someone who refuses and repulses you? Such a thought is folly, for one cannot come to the end of what one has not got. We have no store of love at all. We are not jugs, we are riverbeds.” – Amy Carmichael

Joy and Strength 02/27

Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand. Eph. vi. 13.

That he may please him who hath chosen him to he a soldier. 2 Tim. ii. 4.

Soldiers of Christ, arise,
And put your armor on,
Strong in the strength which God supplies
Through His eternal Son.
Charles Wesley.

WHITHER goest thou?
Where is thy soul?
Is it in peace?
If troubled, why?
How art thou fulfilling the duties of thy position?
What are they?
What effort hast thou made to amend thy disposition, and conquer thy sins?
Hast thou been faithful to the light God has given thee?
What means shouldst thou use, especially with regard to thy most besetting sin or temptation?
Hast thou fought against it?
Hast thou thought about it at all?
What hast thou done with the circumstances of the last month?
Have they wrought God’s work in thee?
Pere Ravignan.
