• “Jesus came!—-And came for me. Simple words! and yet expressing Depths of holy mystery, Depths of wondrous love and blessing. Holy Spirit , make me see All His coming means for me, ‘ Take the things of Christ , I pray, Show them to my heart today.” – Francis R. Havergal

Joy and Strength 11/12

Rejoice in the Lord alway; and again I say, Rejoice.
Phil. iv. 4.

Rejoice in hope and fear;
Rejoice in life and death;
Rejoice when threatening storms are near.
And comfort languisheth:
When should not they rejoice
Whom Christ His brethren calls, —
Who hear and know His guiding voice
When on their hearts it falls?
John Moultrie.

TO “give thanks to Him for all things,” is, indeed, a very difficult duty; for it includes giving thanks for trials of all kinds; for suffering and pain; for languor and weariness; for the crossing of our wills; for contradiction; for reproaches; for loneliness ; for privations. Yet they who have learned submission, will not find it a hard duty; for they will so entirely love all that God wills and appoints, that they will see it is the very best thing for them. Hereafter they will see all the links of the chain, and how wonderfully even those have fitted, which at the time seemed to have no adaptation or agreement. This belief enables them to praise Him, and give thanks now for each thing, assured that as it has been, so it will be — that the God of love will do all things well.
Priscilla Maurice
