• “I was poor in the midst of riches, and ready to perish with hunger near a table plentifully spread and a continual feast. Oh, Beauty, ancient and new! Why have I known thee so late? Alas, I sought thee where thou wast not, and did not seek thee where thou wast…” – Madame Guyon

Joy and Strength 12/24

There was no room for them in the inn.
Luke ii. 7.

God often would enrich, but finds not where to place His treasure, — nor in hand nor heart a vacant space.
Richard Chenevix Trench.

THE soul, in its highest sense, is a vast capacity for God. It is like a curious chamber added on to being, and somehow involving being, a chamber with elastic and contractile walls, which can be expanded, with God as its guest, illimitably, but which without God shrinks and shrivels until every vestige of the Divine is gone.
Henry Drummond.

All that God desires is to give you His great love, so that it may dwell in you, and be the principle of your life and service; and all that withstands God’s desire and His gift is the want of room for it, and for its free movement, when that room is taken up with yourselves and your little personal interests.
William Bernard Ullathornb.

By rooting out our selfish desires, even when they appear to touch no one but ourselves, we are preparing a chamber of the soul where the Divine Presence may dwell.
Ellen Watson
