• “I never felt such an entire emptiness of self-love, or any regard to any private, selfish interest of my own. It seemed to me, that I had entirely done with myself. I felt that the opinions of the world concerning me were nothing, and that I had no more to do with any outward interest of my own, than with that of a person whom I never saw. The glory of God seemed to be all, and in all, and to swallow up every wish and desire of my heart” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

Joy and Strength 08/18

Thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice. Thou crownest the year with Thy goodness.
Ps. Ixv. 8, 11.

He loveth righteousness and justice: the earth is full of the lovingkindness of the Lord.
Ps. xxxiii. (R. V.).

I SING because Thy works are fair,
Thy glory makes me glad.
The garments bright of praise I wear,
For Thou art brightly clad.

Full triumph doth my soul possess.
Because Thy ways are right;
The glory of Thy righteousness
Maketh my dear delight.
Thomas H. Gill.

THE fulness of joy is to behold God in all; for by the same blessed might, wisdom, and love, that He made all things, to the same end our good Lord leadeth it continually, and there to Himself shall bring it, and, when it is time, we shall see it.
Mother Juliana.

God gives us richly all things, to enjoy, while He Himself is His own best gift, and to be enjoyed not in a way of duty, but in the simple, natural realizing aright of what we possess in Him.
John McLeod Campbell

  • “How different the world would look, how different the state of our nation would be, if there were more sanctified priestly souls! These are souls who have the power to bless, for they intercede with sanctified hearts. They never begin their daily time of intercessory prayer without having first brought to the cross all that is unholy in their lives, so that their old self can be crucified there with Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb.” – Basilea Schlink
