• “If my attitude be one of fear, not faith, about one who has disappointed me; if I say, ‘Just what I expected,’ if a fall occurs, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” – Amy Carmichael

Joy and Strength 07/24

Seek the Lord, and His strength: seek His face evermore.
Ps. cv. 4.

O Jesus Christ, grow Thou in me.
And all things else recede;
My heart be daily nearer Thee,
From sin be daily freed.

Make this poor self grow less and less.
Be Thou my life and aim,
Oh, make me daily, through Thy grace,
More worthy of Thy name.
J. C. Lavater.

AS, on rising, we should hear Him saying to us, “Take this yoke upon thee, my child, today,” ” Bear this burden for me and with me today,” so, before retiring to rest, and collecting our mind for our evening prayer, it were well to put these questions to our conscience, “Have I, in a single instance this day, denied myself either in temper or appetite, and so submitted myself to the Saviour’s yoke?” And again, “Have I, in a single instance, shown sympathy or considerateness for others, borne with their faults or infirmities of character, given time or taken trouble to help them, or be of use to them?” If so, I have gained ground; I have made an advance in the mind of Christ today, if it be only a single step. Let me thank God, and take courage. A single step is so much clear gain.
Edward Meyrick Goulburn

Verse of the Day

[The Day of the Lord] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, — 2 Peter 3:10-11 (NKJV)
