• “There’s a big difference between a life that’s a performance, and a life that’s an offering — One holds us captive. The other sets us free.” – Susie Larson

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

  • “I never felt such an entire emptiness of self-love, or any regard to any private, selfish interest of my own. It seemed to me, that I had entirely done with myself. I felt that the opinions of the world concerning me were nothing, and that I had no more to do with any outward interest of my own, than with that of a person whom I never saw. The glory of God seemed to be all, and in all, and to swallow up every wish and desire of my heart” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards
