• “My soul remained in a kind of heavenly elysium. So far as I am capable of making a comparison, I think that what I felt each minute, during the continuance of the whole time, was worth more than all the outward comfort and pleasure, which I had enjoyed in my whole life put together. It was a pure delight, which fed and satisfied the soul. It was peasure, without the least sting, or any interruption. It was a sweetness, which my soul was lost in. It seemed to be all that my feeble frame could sustain, of that fulness of joy, which is felt by those, who behold the face of Christ, and share his love in the heavenly world.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

Joy and Strength 06/25

Teach me Thy way, O Lord; I will walk in Thy truth; unite my heart to fear Thy name.
Ps. Ixxxvi. II.

If thou but suffer God to guide thee,
And hope in Him through all thy ways,
He’ll give thee strength, whate’r betide thee,
And bear thee through the evil days;
Who trusts in God’s unchanging love.
Builds on the rock that nought can move.
Georg Neumark.

IF we seek, indeed, that all our ways may be His ways, if we resolve and pray that we will keep to the path of obedience, of trust, of duty -, then we know that His angels are in charge of us, and that they can bear us nowhere beyond our Father’s eye. His hand. His care. Then we know that all worlds are His, all souls are His; we can trust to Him those He has taken from us, and know that when He has called them to pass out of our sight, He is with them still, to keep them in all their ways, even in that hidden path over which the dark shadow lies, until the day break and the shadows flee away.
John Ellerton.
