• “Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Joy and Strength 05/13

Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever; for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
Ps. cxix. III.

Girt with the love of God on every side,
Breathing that love as heaven’s own healing air,
I work or wait, still following my Guide,
Braving each foe, escaping every snare.
HORATIUS BONAR.

THE Lord preserve us near unto Himself, out of that which separates from Him and weakens; and nothing shall be able to interrupt our joy in the Lord, nor our delight and pleasure in His will.
Isaac Penington.

It is easy to make great sacrifices when God does not ask them, but to give up our own will in each detail of life is something far harder. And this is what He does ask. To hold ourselves ever in readiness for His bidding — to count no token of it too slight — such is His call to each. Thus only shall we be ready for further service if He sees fit to lead us on to it.
H. Bowman.

To live in the Spirit is the right condition of man, his normal condition; and to live in the Spirit is to live with God — hearing Him, and knowing Him, and loving Him, and delighting to do His will.
Thomas Erskine.

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
