 Re:

[i][b]If...[/i][/b]
interruptions annoy me, and private cares make me impatient;
[i][b]If...[/i][/b]
I shadow the souls about me because I myself am shadowed,
[i][b]...then I know nothing of Calvary love.[/i][/b]

 Re:

Well, there are more...

[i][b]If...[/i][/b]
I am inconsiderate about the comfort of others, or their feelings, or even of their little weaknesses;
[i][b]If...[/i][/b] I am careless about their little hurts and miss opportunities to smooth their way;
[i][b]If...[/i][/b] I make the sweet running of household wheels more difficult to accomplish
[i][b]...then I know nothing of Calvary love.[/i][/b]

 Re:

Yes what a wonderful thread and worthy of much meditation upon. Here is a quote that demands much reality and heart meditation. Try making it your prayer today:

"I wish thy way.
And when in me myself should rise,
and long for something otherwise,
Then Lord, take sword and spear
And slay."
-Amy Carmichael

 Re:

A precious thread recycled.

If...
I say, yes I forgive, but I cannot forget as though the God who twice a day washed all the sands on all the shores of all the world could not wash such memories from my mind, ...then I know nothing of Calvary love. If the living God who made the tide and washes the shores daily cannot wash away from my mind the caustic remarks, the ugliness, the wrongs in someone else, ...then I haven't even entered into Calvary love.

Amy may have been bed ridden but she walked with the Lord nonetheless. This pilgrim needs to do less talking and more walking along that way.

 Re:



If I covet any place on earth but the dust at the foot of the Cross, I know nothing of Calvary love.

 Re:

[i][b]If...[/i][/b]
monotony tries me, and I cannot stand drudgery; if stupid people fret me and little ruffles set me on edge; if I make much of the trifles of life,
[i][b]...then I know nothing of Calvary love.[/i][/b]

 Re:

[i][b]If...[/i][/b]
by doing some work which the undiscerning consider "not spiritual work" I can best help others, and I inwardly rebel, thinking it is the spiritual for which I crave, when in truth it is the interesting and exciting,

 Re: 02 March

[i][b]If...[/i][/b]
the care of a soul (or a community) be entrusted to me, and I consent to subject it to weakening influences, because the voice of the world - my immediate Christian world - fills my ears,

 Re:

[i][b]If...[/i][/b]
one whose help I greatly need appears to be as content to build in wood, hay, stubble, as in gold, silver, precious stones, and I hesitate to obey my light and do without that help because so few will understand,
