I will not be online for a few days. Please continue to uplift us in prayers especially today.
In the book "IF" by Amy Carmichael it says:
If I ask to be delivered from trial rather
than for deliverance out of it,
to the praise of His glory;
If I forget that the way of the cross
leads to the cross
and not to a bank of flowers;
If I regulate my life on these lines,
or even unconsciously my thinking,
so that I am surprised when the
way is rough and think it strange,
though the word is,
"Think it not strange,"
"Count it all joy."
then I know nothing of Calvary love.
