• “Lord, may no gift of yours ever take Your place in my heart. Help me to hold them lightly in an open palm, that the supreme object of my desire may always be You and You alone. Purify my heart.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Joy and Strength 05/25

Serve the Lord with gladness. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His mercy endureth to all generations.
Ps. c. 2, 5.

Teach me Thy love to know
That this new light which now I see,
May both the work and workman show:
Then by a sunbeam I will climb to Thee.
George Herbert

WHY should we not rejoice in the things of God? If the day is pure serene, we enjoy its gladness. Why should we not rejoice in the serene light of that shines from Heaven upon us? We find a joy in the presence and cheerful greeting oi friends. Why should we not look up to Heaven, whence so many pure and most loving faces upon us with divine affection, and with tender desires to cheer and help us ? Ha an almighty and most loving Father, in whom we live, and move, and have our being, let us rejoice in Him. Having a most loving Saviour who has made Himself our brother, and feeds us with His life, we ought surely to rejoice Him. Having the Holy Spirit of God with us, making us His temples, and pouring His love into our hearts, we ought certainly to answer His love, and rejoice in His overflowing goodness. “Rejoice in the Lord alway, and again I say, Rejoice.”
William Bernard Ullathorne

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
