• “He is so infinitely blessed, that every perception of His blissful presence imparts a gladness to the heart. Every degree of approach to Him is, in the same proportion, a degree of happiness.” – Susannah Wesley

Joy and Strength 08/31

Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither His ear heavy, that it cannot hear: but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you.
Isa. lix. i, 2.

One thing alone, dear Lord! I dread;-
To have a secret spot
That separates my soul from Thee,
And yet to know it not.
Frederick W. Faber.

IT is a condition of enjoying continued insight into the laws which govern spiritual truth, that we should conform our moral being to that measure of truth which we already see. A deliberate rejection of duty prescribed by already recognized truth cannot but destroy, or at least impair most seriously, the clearness of our mental vision. A single act may thus involve grave inward deterioration; it may land the soul upon a lower level of moral life, where passion is more imperious, and principle is weaker; where a man is less his own master, and more readily enslaved to the circumstances and beings around him.
H. P. Liddon.

It is a strange but inflexible spiritual law, that those who aim at anything short of the best according to their conception, as God has giventhem lighty will sooner ot loiter come to grief. It is merely a matter of time.
Charles H. Brent
