 Oh it is a sweet and holy life! -winslow


[b]Oh it is a sweet and holy life![/b]

(Octavius Winslow, "Divine Realities" 1860)

"My times are in Your hand." Psalm 31:15

Learn to be content with your present lot--with
God's dealings with you, and His disposal of you.

You are just where His providence has, in its
inscrutable, but all wise and righteous decision,
placed you. It may be a painful, irksome, trying
position--but it is right. Oh yes--it is right!

Strive, then, to live a life of daily dependence upon
God. Oh it is a sweet and holy life! It saves . . .
from many a desponding feeling,
from many a corroding care,
from many an anxious thought,
from many a sleepless night,
from many a tearful eye, and
from many an imprudent and sinful scheme.

Thus you shall walk with God through this
valley of tears, until you exchange . . .
sorrow--for joy,
suffering--for ease,
sin--for purity,
labor--for rest,
conflict--for victory,
and all earth's chequered, gloomy scenes--for the
changeless, cloudless happiness and glory of heaven!

"My times are in Your hand." Psalm 31:15

Amen, but at the same time, let us all be carefull into being deceived that we are so spiritually poor because of God´s providence. He wants all of us to be spiritually rich in the abundence found in him. Let us not be content in staying without going deeper into his love and precence. God still want´s us to serch for his kingdom and it´s rightjousness.

sin--for purity



Brother, the only words I do not like of all this are those. Why? Because I have come to know that there is power in the blood of the Lamb to cleanse from all sin, and to give a holly and pure life to all those who seek him daily, knowing that they are nothing without him and knowing that it's only trough him that we can live such a life for him. God bless you brother. May God keep using you for his Glory.
