• “Pain is never permanent.” –Teresa of Avila

Joy and Strength 05/07

That the life also of Jesus might he made manifest in our mortalfesh.
2 CoR. iv. 11.

The fretting friction of our daily life,
Heart-weariness with loving patience borne.
The meek endurance of the inward strife.
The painful crown of thorn,

Prepare the heart for God’s own dwelling-place.
Adorn with sacred loveliness His shrine.
And brighten every inconspicuous grace.
For God alone to shine.
Mary E. Atkinson.

GOD has a purpose for each one of us, a work for each one to do, a place for each one to fill, an influence for each one to exert, a likeness to His dear Son for each one to manifest, and then, a place for each one to fill in His holy Temple.
Arthur C. A. Hall.

The surest method of arriving at a knowledge of God’s eternal purposes about us is to be found in the right use of the present moment. God’s will does not come to us in the whole, but in fragments, and generally in small fragments. It is our business to piece it together, and to live it into one orderly vocation.
F. W. Faber.
