• “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 12/21

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.

  • “But God is the God of the waves and the billows, and they are still His when they come over us; and again and again we have proved that the overwhelming thing does not overwhelm. Once more by His interposition deliverance came. We were cast down, but not destroyed.” – Amy Carmichael
