• “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon

Joy and Strength 12/12

My soul shall be joyful in the Lord; it shall rejoice in His salvation.
Ps. xxxv. 9.

The living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.
I Tim. vi. 17.

Behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart.
Isa. Ixv. 14.

Give me, O Lord, a heart of grace,
A voice of joy, a shining face,
That I may show where’er I turn
Thy love within my soul doth bum!

A tenderness for all that stray.
With strength to help them on the way
A cheerfulness, a heavenly mirth,
Brightening my steps along the earth!
Lady Gilbert.

THOSE who love God are encompassed with gladness on every side, because in every passing moment they see and feel a Father’s love, and nothing of this world can take it away or lessen it.
H. L. Sidney Lear.

To be happy is properly the beginning of all schemes for making happy.
Sarah W. Stephen.

My life is so strangely free from all trial and trouble, that I cannot doubt my own happiness is one of the talents entrusted to me to “occupy” with, till the Master shall return, by doing something to make other lives happy.
Charles L. Dodgeson

  • “O beloved friends, there is a life on wings. I feel the streams of His life fill me and permeate my mortal frame from my head to my feet, until no words are adequate to describe it. I can only make a few bungling attempts to tell you what it is like and ask the Lord to reveal to you the rest. May He reveal to you your inheritance in Christ Jesus so that you will press on and get all that He has for you.” – Carrie Judd Montgomery
