• “If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you will know what His will is.” – Amy Carmichael

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

Be glad then, you children of Zion, And rejoice in the Lord your God; For He has given you the former rain faithfully, And He will cause the rain to come down for you— The former rain, And the latter rain in the first month. — Joel 2:23 (NKJV)
