IF by amy carmichael

busy person?
only got a minute for a devotional each day?
Starting in Chapter 2, this book has basically
a one sentence word of conviction from the Spirit
of God, that you can then chew on (and repent of)
for that whole day
comparing our love to the Love of God and giving
us opportunity to repent of falling short

a brief biography of amy

(December 16, 1867January 18, 1951) was a Protestant Christian missionary in India, who opened an orphanage and founded a mission in Dohnavur. She served in India for fifty-five years without furlough and authored many books about the missionary work there.

not said here is her suffering from neuralgia making her weak and in pain often
not said here is her suffering a tragic fall and being bedridden for most of the last
20 years of her life
not said here is out of such a life, God can truly bring life and depth, that He could
never "mine" out of a 'blessed with divine health' life....

just what God allows

to say...just what God allows
to think...just what God allows
to eat...just what God allows
to wear...just what God allows
to buy...just what God allows
to pray...just what God thinks
to love...just as God loves
holiness

what is the 10th commandment doing there?
ponder it...
9 very good rules for living, outward involving action
and obedience... and then the 10th... a pulling back
of the veil of your heart... what is in there? is it contentment?
is it thankfulness? is it overflowing gratitude?
or do you covet?

books and music

books and music speak to different people at different
times in different ways, so it is no big deal if you
don't agree, but i highly recommend this book
A Serious Call to A Devout and Holy Life
by William Law
we can live this life moment by moment
chapter one was filled with challenging thoughts
and wisdom
moment by moment IN the Love of God
moment by moment LED by His Spirit

prayer

Lord, sovereign and good, all-powerful, nurturing, forgiving,
help us today, to pick up the grace that You provide for us
to live Your life thru us. Help us to see those around us as
You see them, help us to grab hold of any "teachable moments,"
help us to prepare our hearts and lives for the "difficult times"
that are to come. Let the peace of God guard our hearts and
minds. Thank You for Your amazing mercy toward us.
In Jesus Name amen.
