• “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

Love Bangs the Door – God Calling 01/08

Life with Me is not immunity from difficulties, but peace in difficulties. My guidance is often by shut doors. Love bangs as well as opens.
Joy is the result of faithful trusting acceptance of My Will, when It seems not joyous.

St. Paul, my servant, learnt this lesson of the banged doors when he said “our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” Expect rebuffs until this is learned – it is the only way.

Joy is the daughter of calm.

They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. Psalm 125:1
