• “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot

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
