• “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot

The Breath of the Spirit by Civilla D. Martin

Long years we have yearned for the showers of blessing,
Have earnestly prayed for abundance of rain;
Praise God, some are singing the new song of Heaven,
The breath of the Spirit brings power again.


Power again, power again,
Our hearts have been tuned to the sweet refrain,
The breath of the Spirit brings power again.

The life has been fruitless, the heart dry and thirsty,
The task of the Master seemed given in vain;
But now ev’ry day is a day of rich blessing,
The breath of the Spirit brings power again.


No tithes have been brought to the storehouse of Heaven,
Our powers for service long dormant have lain;
But now ev’ry impulse is used in God’s glory,
The breath of the Spirit brings power again.


No souls have been won for the kingdom of glory,
But power for service we now may obtain;
Then gladly as reapers we enter the harvest,
The breath of the Spirit brings power again.

  • “If my attitude be one of fear, not faith, about one who has disappointed me; if I say, ‘Just what I expected,’ if a fall occurs, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” – Amy Carmichael

Verse of the Day

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. — Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV)
