• “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

Joy and Strength 12/21

I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John xiv. 6.

Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
John xx. 29.

The Way, the Truth, the Life Thou art,
This, this I know; to this I cleave;
The sweet new language of my heart,
“Lord, I believe.”
I have no doubts to bring to Thee;
My doubt has fled; my faith is free.
Harriet McEwen Kimball.

WE have been placed upon the Way. We have been taught the Truth. We have been made partakers of the Life. The Way must be traversed; the Truth must be pursued; the Life must be realized. Then Cometh the end. Our pilgrimage, long as it may be or short, if we have walked in Christ, will leave us by the throne of God; our partial knowledge, if we have looked upon all things in Christ, will be lost in open sight; our little lives, perfected, purified, harmonized in Him whom we have trusted, will become, in due order, parts of the One Divine Life, when God is all in all.
Brooke Foss Westcott.

Love is the life of faith; obedience, the life of love. Yea, rather, Christ Himself is the life of the soul.
Edward B. Pusey.

  • “A Christian woman’s true freedom lies on the other side of a very small gate—humble obedience—but that gate leads out into a largeness of life undreamed of by the liberators of the world, to a place where the God-given differentiation between the sexes is not obfuscated but celebrated, where our inequalities are seen as essential to the image of God, for it is in male and female, in male as male and female as female, not as two identical and interchangeable halves, that the image is manifested.” – Elisabeth Elliot
