Joy and Strength 07/26

And He said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
Luke ix. 23.

We pray Thee, grant us strength to take
Our daily cross, whatever it be,
And gladly for Thine own dear sake
In paths of pain to follow Thee.
W. W. How.

THE more you accept daily crosses as daily bread, in peace and simplicity, the less they will injure your frail, delicate health; but forebodings and frettings would soon kill you.
FRANCOIS DE LA MOTHE FENELON.

We speak of the crosses of daily life, and forget that our very language is a witness against us, how meekly we ought to bear them, in the blessed steps of our holy Lord; how in “every cross and care,” we ought not to acquiesce simply, but to take them cheerfully, — not cheerfully only but joyfully; yea, if they should even deserve the name of ” tribulation,” to “joy in tribulation” also, as seeing in them our Father’s hand, our Saviour’s cross.
E. B. PUSEY.

Take kindly and heartsomely with His cross, who never yet slew a child with the cross.
Samuel Rutherford.

  • “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
