• “God, You created me woman. You know what You designed for me to be. I don’t want to be a foolish woman. I want to fulfill Your purpose for me. Speak to me through Your Word. Cleanse me through the washing of Your Word, and work in my life so that when I see You face to face, I am not ashamed, but I hear well done, My good and faithful daughter.” – Kay Arthur

Joy and Strength 03/08

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.
Rom. viii. 37.

Lord, in this awful fight with Sin
I would not just prevail
Against each lust so strong within
I would not almost fail.
Full, gladsome, glorious victory
Should crown the Holy War;
Lord ! I would triumph well — would be
A more than conqueror.
Thomas H. Gill.

DO not try only to abstain from sin, but strive, by God’s grace, to gain the opposite grace. If thou wouldest not slip back into sin, thou must stretch forward to Christ and His holiness. It is a dull, heavy, dreary, toilsome way, just to avoid sin. Thou wouldest not simply not be impatient; thou wouldest long to be like thy Lord, who was meek and lowly of heart. Thou wouldest not only not openly murmur; thou wouldest surely long, like the beloved Apostle, to rest on Jesus’ breast, and will what He wills.
Edward B. Pusey.

The only real relief is in absolute conquest; and the earlier the battle begins, the easier and the shorter it will be. If one can keep irritability under, one may escape a struggle to the death with passion.
Juliana H. Ewing.
