• “God, I want to know more of You. I want to know more of Your ways. I want to know anything You want to show me through this. But if I have to live with mystery and unanswered questions the rest of my life, I will still trust You. I will still love You. I will still obey You.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Joy and Strength 12/09

Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
1 John iv. 11.

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
John xiii. 35.

Do I find love so full In my nature, God’s ultimate gift. That I doubt His own love can compete with it? Here, the parts shift? Here, the creature surpass the Creator, — the end, what Began? Would I fain in my impotent yearning do all for this man, And dare doubt He alone shall not help him, who yet alone can?
Robert Browning.

“COME unto me,” says the holy Jesus, “all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will refresh you.” Beg of Him to be the light and life of your soul; love the sound of His name; for Jesus is the love^ the sweetness^ the compassionate goodness of the Deity itself; which became man, that so men might have the power to become the sons of God. Love, and pity, and wish well to every soul in the world; dwell in love and then you dwell in God.
William Law.

The Lord’s love is the love of communicating all that He has to all His creatures; for He desires the happiness of all; and a similar love prevails in those who love Him, because the Lord is in them.
Emanuel Swedenborg.

  • “We need Jesus!…He is our joy…without Him, the world and all it calls good, is poverty, wretchedness and woe! With Him, a wilderness is a paradise, a cottage a palace and the lowliest spot of earth a little heaven below” – Mary Winslow
