• “Do not lose yourself in your everyday work and activities. Rather, lose yourself in God. When you are doing work, let your innermost heart be centered on Him. Live in His presence and abide in Him. Then your work will follow you into eternity, and you will reap a rich harvest.” – Basilea Schlink

Joy and Strength 12/19

And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
Isa. XXX. 21.

The ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them.
Hosea xiv. 9.

Yet more and more this truth doth shine
From failure and from loss,
The will that runs transverse to
Thine Doth thereby make its cross:
Thine upright will Cuts straight and still
Through pride and dream and dross.
W. M. L. Jay.

LET us remember that it is not God who makes many of the crosses that we find in our way, such as we commonly call “crosses.” Our Heavenly Father makes “straight paths for our feet,” and, if we would go in His way, if we would straighten our wills to His will, and lay them side by side, there would be no crosses. But when the path that God points out goes north and south, and our stubborn wills lead us east and west, the consequence is “a cross ” — a cross of our own making, not that which our Master bids us “take up and carry after Him,” and of which it has been well said, “He always carries the heaviest end Himself?.”

  • “In all places and at all times, we can have that familiar friendship, we can have Him with us; and there may be through the day a constant interchange of private words, of little offerings, too small to have any name attached to them—by which the bonds of that familiar friendship grow closer and more real, until it comes to that special personal intimacy, which we call sanctity.” – Janet Erskine Stuart, 1857-1914

I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. — John 10:14-15 (NKJV)
