"Dailies" April 1, 2006


Psalms 16:11, Amplified Bible
"You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore."

"...'All things work together for good' to God's children. See if you cannot spend a short time after dark in looking out of your window into space, and meditating upon heaven, with all its joys unspeakable and full of glory; and think of what the Saviour relinquished in glory when he came to earth, and of His sufferings for us; and seek to realize, with the apostle, that the afflictions of the present life are not worthey to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Try to look up and be cheerful, and not desponding...."
-Excerpt from a letter from Stonewall Jackson to his wife Anna, May 7, 1859

That quote from Stonewall Jackson is really good to think about. How many times of sadness and self pity could be diverted if we only meditated in thankfulness for what Christ has done for us! Thank you for the encouraging quote and thank you for your comment at my blog!

Have a wonderful day!
