QUOTES FROM THE WRITINGS OF LILIAS TROTTER (All dated quotes are from her diaries and travel journals)
“For if the Sun of Righteousness has risen upon our hearts, there is an ocean of grace and love and power lying all around us, an ocean to which all earthly light is but a drop, and it is ready to transfigure us, as the sunshine transfigured the dandelion, and on the same condition – that we stand full face to God.” Focussed
“Believe in the darkness what you have seen in the light.” 1 August 1901
“It is water poured down into a low narrow channel that can rise into a fountain. Faith that come from the depths has a spring in it!” 10 July 1896
“The stretched out hand of faith on earth, acting in union with the stretched out hand of God’s power in heaven. That is the sort of faith we have go to learn before we have done with it.” 17 December 1899; 1 January 1900
“I am seeing more and more that we begin to learn what it is to walk by faith when we learn to s…

Greater Realities, part 4

By Shelley Hendry
Christ has died. Christ has risen.  Christ has redeemed. Christ is enthroned. Christ loves us.  And He is our one True Reality.  Our one immutable Reality...Our All in ALL.

Greater realities have been there all along, but perhaps we have not perceived them, forgotten them, denied them, or ignored them. They are too high for me...for us all...sometimes we can't even look up at all,  much less look at these hovering mercies.

So may this meditation help you along your Journey, perhaps in the Valley of the Shadow of Death. Death has many forms, and grief wears many faces, so perhaps your Journey is different than mine. Let us see what God is doing, or remember what God has done, or remind ourselves that what He promises He will do. 

Let this message be sent out as in the days of Esther, to the family of God scattered abroad, to refresh the saints of the weary and serve as a written remembrance of “those that loved the Lord talked one to another.”  My life has literal…

New Jesus Loves Me

New Jesus Loves MeBy Susan Warner
Jesus loves me this I know,  As He loved so long ago,  Taking children on His knees,  Saying, "Let them come to Me."
Jesus loves me still today,  Walking with me on my way, Wanting as a freeie to give,  Light and love to all who live.
Jesus loves me; He will stay,  Close beside me all the way, Thou hast bled and died for me, I will henceforth live for Thee.

My Commitment As a Christian

My Commitment As a Christian
"I'm a part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit Power. The dye has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I'm a disciple of His. I won't look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.
My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I'm finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, lamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power. 
My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way rough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned…
