• “I went up to a man and said ‘Jesus loves you’ …but I realised that it didn’t mean anything unless I did it.” – Jackie Pullinger

Joy and Strength 11/19

He knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with Him.
Dan. ii. 22.

Take it on trust a little while;
Soon shalt thou read the mystery right
In the full sunshine of His smile.
John Keble.

GOD is too wise not to know all about us, and what is really best for us to be, and to have. And He is too good, not to desire our highest good ; and too powerful, desiring, not to effect it. If, then, what He has appointed for us does not seem to us the best, or even to be good, our true course is to remember that He sees further than we do, and that we shall understand Him in time, when His plans have unfolded themselves; meanwhile casting all our care upon Him, since He careth for us.
Henry Parry Liddon.

To be out of harmony with the things, acts, and events, which God in His* providence has seen fit to array around us — that is to say, not to meet them in a humble, believing, and thankful spirit—is to turn from God. And, on the other hand, to see in them the developments of God’s presence, and of the divine will, and to accept that will, is to turn in the opposite direction, and to be in union with Him.
Thomas C. Upham.

  • “By confessing sin we gather strength to resist it; thereby the enemy of our souls is foiled, the conscience is kept tender, the heart is sanctified, and the blood of Jesus becomes increasingly precious. Let us constantly flee to the cleansing fountain!” – Mary Winslow

Verse of the Day

“O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. — 1 Corinthians 15:55-57 (NKJV)
