• “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

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

Verse of the Day

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. — James 3:17-18 (NKJV)
