• “Lord, may no gift of yours ever take Your place in my heart. Help me to hold them lightly in an open palm, that the supreme object of my desire may always be You and You alone. Purify my heart.” – Elisabeth Elliot

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.

Verse of the Day

Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation. — Psalm 68:4-5 (NKJV)
