• “When we begin to understand what the blood of Jesus does for us, we will testify to the power of His blood, and shall thus have power continually to overcome the enemy. It is blessed to note that the blood of Jesus is the purchase price of our full salvation. ‘Take heed…to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood’ (Acts 20:28)” – Carrie Judd Montgomery

Joy and Strength 6/16

Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
Ps. cxix. 54.

My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Phil. iv. 19.

How must the pilgrim’s load be borne?
With staggering limbs and look forlorn?
His Guide chose all that load within;
There ‘s need of everything but sin.

So, trusting Him whose love He knows.
Singing along the road he goes;
And nightly of his burden makes
A pillow, till the morning breaks.
Lucy Larcom.

THEY live contented with what they have, whether it be little or much, because they know that they receive as much as is profitable for them; little, if little be profitable, and much, if much be profitable; and that they cannot tell what is profitable for them, but the Lord only can, who has an eternal end in view in all things which He provides.
Emanuel Swedenborg.

I hope you will learn, what I am always hoping to learn, to rejoice in God continually, knowing that He is really ordering all your circumstances to the one end of making you a partaker of His own goodness, and bringing you within His own sympathy.
Thomas Erskine.

  • “They only did what God permitted them to do, which enabled me always to keep God in sight… When we suffer, we should always remember that God inflicts the blow. Wicked men, it is true, are not infrequently His instruments; and the fact does not diminish, but simply develops their wickedness. But when we are so mentally disposed that we love the strokes we suffer, regarding them as coming from God, and as expressions of what He sees best for us, we are then in the proper state to look forgivingly and kindly upon the subordinate instrument which He permits to smite us.” – Madame Guyon
