Is God Enough? ~ Lilias Trotter

October 28th, 2010

Have faith, like the flowers, to let the old things go. Earn His beatitude, His “Blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in Me” – “the beatitude of the trusting,” as it has well been called – even if you have to earn it like John the Baptist in an hour of desolation. You […]

If we take courage to expect, we shall have crushing disappointments sometimes, but often we shall find. And we shall tap deep wells. We shall discover a power and abandon of love to our blessed Lord Jesus that overflows our poverty of faith. Not the emotion of a moment, but the passion of a lifetime, […]

An excerpt from Daily Light, a daily devotional that utilizes exclusively the words of Scripture: Noah . . . planted a vineyard: and he drank of the wine, and was drunken. – Abram . . . said unto Sarai his wife, . . . Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may […]

Thy Loyalty Is To Follow Me

This week I decided to revive some of my favorite posts from my earlier blogging days. These are thoughts and quotes that have challenged and shaped me and I trust will still be an encouragement to others.

The Message behind the Method. A look […]

We need to remind ourselves of the stern, heroic stuff Jesus Christ always spoke when He talked about discipleship. “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me” (Luke 9:23). Few of us do it though plenty of us talk about it. It means […]

XXXVI. The Life-Plan of Peter and John   “What is that to thee? follow thou Me.”–JOHN xxi. 22.        We are standing on the eastern shore of the Lake of Galilee.  The morning breeze blows fresh in our faces; the tiny wavelets run up with a silvery ripple, and die on the white sand; […]

Where is He? Oh where is He for whom my soul is pining, For whom I yearn, and thirst, and pant, and pray? Around His empty cross my arms I’m twining, What daring hand has borne His form away? He is my soul’s beloved, my heart’s treasure- With Him this weary world could restful be; […]

XXVII. The Trial before Caiaphas “Annas had sent Him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.”–JOHN xviii. 24.      It was as yet but two or three o’clock in the morning.  Jerusalem was still asleep, and well it was for the foes of Jesus that no suspicion of what was on foot had breathed into the […]
