Joy and Strength 05/21

To them who by patient continuance in well-doings seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life.
Rom. ii. 7.

Let us run with patience the race that is set be-fore us.
Heb. xii. i.

Thus would I press on to the glory,
A knight in the army of God,
Whose march will be onward and forward,
Because of the foes on the road.
Before me the guerdon Thou givest.
My glorious eternal reward.
And with me Thy peace and Thy wisdom.
Because of the Cross of the Lord.
Henry Suso.

IF He calls you to a kind of service which is according to His will but not according to your taste, you must not go to it with less, rather with more courage and energy than if your taste coincided with His will. The less of self and self-will there is in anything we do, the better. You must not amuse yourself with going from side to side, when duty calls you straight on; nor make difficulties, when the real thing is to get over them. Let your heart be full of courage, and then say, ” I shall succeed. Not I, but the grace of God which is with me.”
St. Francis de Sales.

  • “If my attitude be one of fear, not faith, about one who has disappointed me; if I say, ‘Just what I expected,’ if a fall occurs, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” – Amy Carmichael

Verse of the Day

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NKJV)
