• “I never felt such an entire emptiness of self-love, or any regard to any private, selfish interest of my own. It seemed to me, that I had entirely done with myself. I felt that the opinions of the world concerning me were nothing, and that I had no more to do with any outward interest of my own, than with that of a person whom I never saw. The glory of God seemed to be all, and in all, and to swallow up every wish and desire of my heart” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

Joy and Strength 12/22

He that dwelleth In the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Ps. xci. I.

The upright shall dwell in Thy presence.
Ps. cxl. 13.

My soul and all its powers
Thine, wholly Thine shall be;
All, all my happy hours I consecrate to Thee:
Me to Thine image now restore,
And I shall praise Thee evermore.
Charles Wesley.

IF the wish is wakened in our soul to bfe ever in His presence, let us go to Him this moment, and ask Him what to do, and how to feel, believing that He is more ready to hear than we to pray. He will give us realization of His love, and convictions of duty. Let us follow those convictions implicitly; let us ask Him every day to teach us more, and help us more; and we shall soon say, with Paul, “Thanks be unto God, for His unspeakable gift!”
William R. Huntington.

The all-important thing is not to live apart from God, but as far as possible to be consciously with Him. It must needs be that those who look much into His face will become like Him.
Charles H. Brent

Even though I'm a guy it duznt matter, my spirit is called forward to experience the life that Christ is living in me and thru me
