• “When we begin to understand what the blood of Jesus does for us, we will testify to the power of His blood, and shall thus have power continually to overcome the enemy. It is blessed to note that the blood of Jesus is the purchase price of our full salvation. ‘Take heed…to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood’ (Acts 20:28)” – Carrie Judd Montgomery

Joy and Strength 12/05

That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death. Phil. iii. 10.

What within me and without
Hourly on my spirit weighs,
Burdening heart and soul with doubt.
Darkening all my weary days;
In it I behold Thy will,
God, who givest rest and peace;
And my heart is calm and still.
Waiting till Thou send release.
A. H. Francke.

WHATEVER thy grief or trouble be, take every drop in thy cup from the hand of Almighty God. He with whom “the hairs of thy head are all numbered,” knoweth every throb of thy brow, each hardly drawn breath, each shoot of pain, each beating of the fevered pulse, each sinking of the aching heart. Receive, then, what are trials to thee^ not in the main only, but one by one, from His all-loving hands ; thank His love for each ; unite each with the sufferings of thy Redeemer; pray that He will thereby hallow them to thee. Thou wilt not know now what He thereby will work in thee; yet, day by day, shalt thou receive the impress of the likeness of the ever-blessed Son, and in thee, too, while thou knowest it not, God shall be glorified.
E. B. Pusey
