Joy and Strength 06/14

This day is salvation come to this house.
Luke xix. 9.

From this day will I bless you.
Hag. ii. 19.

Every day is a fresh beginning;
Listen, my soul, to the glad refrain.
And spite of old sorrow and older sinning.
And puzzles forecasted and possible pain.
Take heart with the day, and begin again.
Susan Coolidge.

EVERY temptation to evil temper which can assail us to-day will be an opportunity to decide the question whether we shall gain the calmness and the rest of Christ, or whether we shall be tossed by the restlessness and agitation of the world. Nay, the very vicissitudes of the seasons, day and night, heat and cold, affecting us variably, and producing exhilaration or depression, are so contrived as to conduce towards th being which we become, and decide whether w shall be master of ourselves, or whether we shal be swept at the mercy of accident and circum stance, miserably susceptible of merely outwar influences.
F. W. Robertson

Why wilt thou defer thy good purpose from day to day? Arise, and begin in this very instant, and say, “Now is the time to be doing; now is the time to be striving; now is the fit time to amend myself.” Unless thou dost earnestly force thyself, thou shalt never get the victory over sin.
Thomas A. Kempis

  • “But God is the God of the waves and the billows, and they are still His when they come over us; and again and again we have proved that the overwhelming thing does not overwhelm. Once more by His interposition deliverance came. We were cast down, but not destroyed.” – Amy Carmichael
