• “We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.” – Amy Carmichael

Joy and Strength 07/17

Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.
Isa. xxvi. 4.

Come, children, let us go!
Our Father is our guide;
And when the way grows steep and dark.
He journeys at our side.
Our spirits He would cheer,
The sunshine of His love
Revives and helps us as we rove.
Ah, blest our lot e’en here!
Gerhard Tersteegen.

WE are living out these lives of ours too much apart from God. We toil on dismally, as if the making or the marring of our destinies rested wholly with ourselves. It is not so. We are not the lonely, orphaned creatures we let ourselves suppose ourselves to be. The earth, rolling on its way through space, does not go unattended. The Maker and Controller of it is with it, and around it, and upon it. He is with us here and now. He knows us infinitely more thoroughly than we know ourselves. He loves us better than we have ever dared to believe could be possible.
William R. Huntington.

Some of us believe that God is all mighty, and may do all; and that He is all wisdom, and can do all; but that He is all love, and will do all, there we fail.
Mother Juliana
