Joy and Strength 10/08

Fear none of those things which thou shult suffer.
Rev. ii. 10.

Let Thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for Thy law is my delight.
Ps. cxix. 77.

O BLESSED life! the heart at rest
When all without tumultuous seems; That trusts a higher Will, and deems
That higher Will, not mine, the best.
William Tidd Matson.

NOTHING is so trying to nature as suspense between a faint hope and a mighty fear; but we must have faith as to the extent of our trials, as in all else. Our sensitiveness makes us often disposed to fancy that we are tried beyond our strength; but we really know neither our strength to endure nor the nature of God’s trials. Only He who knows both these, and every turn of the hearts which He has made, knows how to deal out a due proportion. Let us leave it all to Him, and be content to bear in silence.
FRANCOIS DE LA MOTHE FENELON.

It is not the sunny side of Christ that we must look to, and we must not forsake Him for want of that. Oh, how sweet a thing were it for us to learn to make our burdens light, by framing our hearts to tVve bvi^deu^ and making our Lord’s will a law!
Samuel Rutherford

Verse of the Day

Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain. — Philippians 2:14-16 (NKJV)
