Are you Troubled and Confused?

"God longs to lead and guide us,
And take us by the hand;
Would whisper His assurance,
And help us understand.
But in too great a hurry
To linger long in prayer,
We often rise to duty,
And leave Him waiting there." --Unknown

"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6.

A traveler crossed a frozen stream
In trembling fear one day.
Later a teamster drove across,
And whistled all the way.
Great faith and little faith alike
Were granted safe convoy.
One had the pangs of needless fear.
The other all the joy. -Author Unknown

"I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye." Psalm 32:8.

"And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them." Isaiah 42:16.

The Love You can Receive, the Love You Give. . .

"What is the Bible interpretation of God? "God is love." By giving Christ to our world, God manifested His love for mankind. "God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Yes, "everlasting life." This is the love which is the fulfilling of the law. Only he whose heart is filled with compassion for fallen man, who loves to a purpose, showing his love by the performance of Christlike deeds, will be able to endure the seeing of Him who is invisible. He only who loves his fellowmen to a purpose can know God.
He who loves not those for whom the Father has done so much know not God....

"God is supreme. His love in the human heart will lead to the doing of work that will bear fruit after the similitude of the character of God. . . .

"Charity [love] suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth." O blessed leaves of the tree of life! "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity."
"Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name." Lift Him Up, page 134.

"Christ sought to teach the grand truth so needful for us to learn, that God is always with us, an inmate of every dwelling,
that He is acquainted with every action performed on earth. He knows the thoughts framed in the mind and endorsed by the soul.
He hears every word that falls from the lips of human beings. He is walking and working in the midst of all our transactions in life.
He knows every plan, He measures every method. And yet by many His hand is not recognized, His wonderful footsteps are not discerned." RH, May 30, 1899.

What a wonderful comfort this companionship with Him could be for anyone who realizes that it is freely offered and truly given!

Love is power. It is a principle of intellectual and moral worth. When it is expressed only as a passion, it burns strong but fizzles fast.
When it is expressed as a principle in the life, it endures for an entire lifetime.

" 'Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do you even so to them.' Blessed results would appear as the fruit of such a course." RH, May 11, 1886.

"Christ joined himself with the nature of man, that through him man might again become one with God, preserving the closest union with his fellow men,-- the same that exists between the Father and the Son. Christ lived not to please or glorify himself. He came to live and work in behalf of fallen man. Every moment of his life, every deed that he performed, was an expression of his unselfish love. That the Son of the infinite God should bind himself so closely with man was condescension and mercy so wonderful that its mysteries could scarcely be understood." RH, May 30, 1899.

"I Am With Thee."

"I Am with thee." He hath said it.
In His truth and tender grace;

Sealed the promise grandly spoken
Of His love and faithfulness.

He is with thee in thy dwelling,
Shielding thee from fear of ill,

All thy burdens kindly bearing,
For thy dear ones gently caring,
Guarding, keeping, blessing still.

-Frances Ridley Havergal

"I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." Hebrews 13:5.
