• “We need Jesus!…He is our joy…without Him, the world and all it calls good, is poverty, wretchedness and woe! With Him, a wilderness is a paradise, a cottage a palace and the lowliest spot of earth a little heaven below” – Mary Winslow

Joy and Strength 10/23

Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ.
2 Cor. ii. 14.

Fight the good fight
With all thy might;
Christ is thy Strength, and Christ thy Right;
Lay hold on life,
And it shall be Thy joy and crown eternally.
J. B. S. MONSELL.

LET the first act on waking be to place yourself, your heart, mind, faculties, your whole being, in God’s hands. Ask Him to take entire possession of you, to be the Guide of your soul, your Life, your Wisdom, your Strength. He wills that we seek Him in all our needs, that we may both know Him truly, and draw closer and closer to Him ; and in prayer we gain an invisible force which will triumph over seemingly hopeless difficulties.
H. L. Sidney Lear.

However matters go, it is our happiness to win new ground daily in Christ’s love, and to purchase a new piece of it daily, and to add conquest to conquest.
Samuel Rutherford.

This ought to be our endeavor, — to conquer ourselves, and daily to wax stronger, and to make a further growth in holiness.
