Joy and Strength 05/10

They that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
Heb. xi. 14.

For our citizenship is in heaven.
Phil. iii. 20 (R. v.).

Green are the fields of the earth, holy and sweet her joys;
Take, and taste, and be glad — as fruit and blossom and bird,
But still as an exile, Soul; then, hey, with a singing voice.
For the stars and sun and sweet heaven, whose ultimate height is the Lord!
Ripe, lovely, and glad, you shall grow in the light of His face and His word.
Katherine Tynan Hinkson.

STAND still awhile, and seriously consider the noble end for which thou wast created, and for which God hath placed thee in this world! Thou wast not created for time and the creature, but for God and eternity, and to employ thyself with God and eternity. And thou art in the world, to the end that thou mayest again seek God, and His countenance which giveth blessedness, from which thou hast turned thyself away by sin j in order that thou mayest become thoroughly sanctified and enlightened, and that God may have joy, delight, peace, and pleasure in thee, and thou in God.
Gerhard Tersteegen.

That prayer taught by the saints, “Make me reach, my God, the degree of holiness to which Thou didst call me in creating me!”
Lady Georgians Fullerton
