 A Christian's Secret of a Happy Life (article series)

[img]http://www.calvarychapel.com/escondido/HWS_banner.jpg[/img]

[b]Is your life all you want it to be?[/b] Hannah Whitall Smith--Quaker holiness minister of the 19th century, rebel, realist--faced life as she found it, and she found it good. She took her Bible promises literally, tested them, and found them true as tested steel. Here she reveals the secret--how to make unhappiness and uncertainty give way to serenity and confidence in every day of your life.

I am currently reading through this devotional classic [u]A Christian's Secret of a Happy Life[/u] by Hannah Whitall Smith and couldn't continue without sharing this treasure I have found with you through posting the excerpts I have chosen in different articles. My experience so far, as I've been reading, has been inspiring, encouraging, edifying, and applicable. I hope you will be blessed as I have been.

 Re: A Christian's Secret of a Happy Life (article series)

Yolanda I am very excited with this new article series you are starting. I know it will stimulate much great conversation and also just the articles themselves will be very edifying the general public of SI. "For he that is dead is freed from sin." (Romans 6:7).

What a beautiful topic of holiness and victory in the Christ led life. May many enter into this life as we read and meditate on these precious truths.

 Re: Secret to a happy life

Hi Yolanda,

I read this book a couple of years ago and I really loved it. Nice to see it on here.

One of my favorite parts is in the third chapter: The Life Defined. I won't give it away, but it was about a man bending under a heavy burden- and the illustration is wonderful. I made it into an article once :-)

Hope you really enjoy the rest of the book!

In Him, Chanin

 Re:


There seems to be a good response to these articles. Not so much in comments, but in views. I haven't posted any personal comments to the 3 articles now, that I've posted, but I will share with you now that as I've been going through this book, I've found that I have been in a place in my life where the practical truths discussed in each chapter are things I've had to excercise and apply to my own life. Trust is something I've been really lacking lately. My life has been mostly ruled by emotions and circumstances lately. But these words of Hannah Whitall Smith have been so refreshing. In the 4th article that I'll be posting, you will read about rest and giving up your burdens to God. This too I have had to apply to my life. How faithful God has been! What seemed lifeless and hopeless, God has been faithful to redeem and restore as I've placed my emotions and my "problems" into His hands. Again, I have been so encouraged by this book, and I expect you will find encouragement, comfort, and hope from these articles.

 Re: Secret of a happy life

Hi Yolanda,

hmmmm. My copy is not layed out like yours is. The part I was refering to that is in Chapter 3 in my book and called The Life defined" is actually part 4 in your book. Probably different publishers :-)

Keep up the good work!

I know, the way I'm posting the articles doesn't match the chapters perfectly. That's because in chapter one, I divided the chapter into two different articles. Plus, I don't want to give people too much to read all at once in one article. Each chapter has a bunch of subjects within it... so... sometimes I've combined ideas and have come up with my own subject title inspired by what I read. And of course, I'm not posting [i]everything[/i] that's in the book! I'm sure, technically, copyright laws have already been broken. If people want to read the whole thing, they'll need to get the book for themselves.
