• “The will of God is never exactly what you expect it to be. It may seem to be much worse, but in the end it’s going to be a lot better and a lot bigger.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Joy and Strength 06/19

That which I see not teach Thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do it no more.
Job xxxiv. 32.

He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths.
Isa. ii. 3.

Yes, take my heart, and in it rule,
Direct it as it pleaseth Thee;
I will be silent in Thy school.
And learn whatever Thou teachest me.
Gerhard Tersteegen

PEOPLE cannot become perfect by dint of hearing or reading about perfection. The chief thing is not to listen to yourself, but silently to listen to God. Talk little and do much, without caring to be seen. God will teach you more than all the most experienced persons or the most spiritual books can do. You already know a great deal more than you practise. You do not need the acquirement of fresh knowledge half so much as to put in practice that which you already possess.
Francois de la Mothe Fenelon.

To speak with the tongues of men or angels on religious matters, is a much less thing than to know how to stay the mind upon God, and abide with Him in the closet of our hearts, observing, loving, adoring, and obeying His holy power within us.
William Law
