QUOTE…..Charles Spurgeon

“Look on thine own nothingness and be humble, but look at Jesus thy great representative and be glad.  It will save thee many pangs if thou will learn to think of thyself as being in Him.  Accepted in the Beloved.”

A QUOTE FROM J.B. STONEY

“It is true that in the mind of the Father we are always over Jordan.  But though
here in the wilderness, the joys of heaven are ours–the reality of being over is not known
until by faith we accept it as having died and risen with Christ and that therefore heaven
is our position; we know it to be our place, and that this side is not our place,
and we know that it is not.
The more you are with the Lord in spirit on the other side, the less disappointed you
will be here, for when you are there you import new joys and new hopes into this
old world, from an entirely new one and you therefore in every way surpass the
inhabitants of this judged world.  May this be more and more your happy song.”
J.B. Stoney
When something brutal hits us and makes us view ourselves as unworthy and
unacceptable, we can turn to these inspired words from God : “He hath made
us accepted in the Beloved.”

TELL GOD……A Fenelon

TELL GOD
“Tell God all that is in your heart, as one unloads one’s heart, its pleasures and its pains, to a dear friend. Tell Him your troubles, that He may comfort you; tell Him your joys, that He may sober them; tell Him your longings, that He may purify them; tell Him your dislikes, that He may help you to conquer them; talk to Him of your temptations, that He may shield you from them; show Him the wounds of your heart, that He may heal them; lay bare your indifference to good, your depraved tastes for evil, your instability. Tell Him how self-love makes you unjust to others, how vanity tempts you to be insincere, how pride disguises you to yourself as to others. “If you thus pour out all your weaknesses, needs, troubles, there will be no lack of what to say. You will never exhaust th e subject. It is continually being renewed. People who have no secrets from each other never want for subjects of conversation. They do not weigh their words, for there is nothing to be held back; neither do they seek for something to say. T hey talk out of the abundance of the heart, without consideration, just what they think. Blessed are they who attain to such familiar, unreserved intercourse with God.”
–Fenelon

“I carry this in the back of my Bible, everywhere I go, and every now and then I get it out and read it. This was written by Fenelon, a great saint and mystic of the Middle Ages.”

Dr. J. Vernon McGee
