• “We are women, and my plea is Let me be a woman, holy through and through, asking for nothing but what God wants to give me, receiving with both hands and with all my heart whatever that is.” – Elisabeth Elliot

_Blessed is the man whom Thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of Thy law_.–PS. xciv
Truly this is a grief, and I must bear it.–JER. x. 19.

Hold in thy murmurs, heaven arraigning! The patient see God’s loving face; Who bear their burdens uncomplaining, ‘Tis they that win the Father’s grace.
ANON.
Do not run to this and that for comfort when you are in trouble, but bear it. Be uncomfortably quiet–be uneasily silent–be patiently unhappy.
J.P. GREAVES.
Hard words will vex, unkindness will pierce; neglect will wound; threatened evils will make the soul quiver; sharp pain or weariness will rack the body, or make it restless. But what says the Psalmist? “When my heart is vexed, I will complain.” To whom? Not of God, but to God.
E.B. PUSEY.
Surely, I have thought, I do not want to have a grief which would not be a grief. I feel that I shall be able to take up my cross in a religious spirit soon, and then it will be all right.
JAMES HINTON.

  • “Many do not recognize the fact as they ought, that Satan has got men fast asleep in sin and that it is his great device to keep them so. He does not care what we do if he can do that. We may sing songs about the sweet by and by, preach sermons and say prayers until doomsday, and he will never concern himself about us, if we don’t wake anybody up. But if we awake the sleeping sinner he will gnash on us with his teeth. This is our work – to wake people up.” – Catherine Booth
