• “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr

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

  • “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
