Joy and Strength 10/10

Our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name.
Ps. xxxiii. 21.

Take anxious care for nought.
To God your wants make known;
And soar on wings of heavenly thought
Toward His eternal throne;
So, though our path is steep,
And many a tempest lowers,
Shall His own peace our spirits keep.
And Christ’s dear love be ours.
John Moultrie.

CHERISH thankfulness with prayer. St. Paul gives us in two words this secret of peace. “In everything,” (he excepts nothing, so do not you) “by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” He does not say it as a benediction only: he tells us, it ” shall keep your hearts and minds.” Do the one and God will do the other. Ask what you will, be thankful; and not peace only, but peace which passeth all which our poor minds can think, shall keep these poor breaking, restless hearts — these ever wearying, worrying minds of ours — in Christ Jesus.
E. B. Pusey

  • “Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.” – Elisabeth Elliot
