• “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr

Joy and Strength 04/22

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.
Rev. iii. 20.

0 Love Divine ! — whose constant beam
Shines on the eyes that will not see,
And waits to bless us, while we dream
Thou leavest us because we turn from Thee.
J. G. Whittier.

UNHAPPY spirit, cast down under thy sins, multitudes of sins, years of sins! — heavily burdened as thou art, and pierced through wi^h sorrows, thou mayest look to God, and hope, for “He delighteth in mercy.” His mercy can make thee a clean and beautiful, a happy and rejoicing spirit. God will be “delighted” to make thee “equal to the angels.” So humble, so loving is thy God, and so earnestly does He long to bless thee, that behold. He stands at thy door and knocks,
John Pulsford.

And if God knocks continually at the heart of man, desiring to enter in and sup there, and to communicate to him His gifts, who can believe that when the heart opens and invites Him to enter. He will become deaf to the invitation, and refuse to come in?
Lorenzo Scupoli.
