dern, we’re all goin’…
Live so near to Me that you may never miss the opportunity of being used by Me. It is the prepared instrument, lying nearest to the Master Craftsman’s Hand, that is seized to do the work.
So be very near Me, and you cannot fail to be much used. Remember that Love is the Great Interpreter, so that those who love you and are near to you are the ones you can help the most.
Do not pass them by for others, though your influence and helpfulness will gradually spread, in an ever-widening circle. You will live in a spirit of glad surprise. JOY

August 10 – Stray Sheep
|And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying O my Father, |
if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless not as I will, but thou wilt.
Matthew 26:39 Oh Jesus, guide our footsteps lest we stray. For straying, My children,
there is no cure except to keep so close to Me that nothing, no interest, no temptation,
no other — can come between us. Sure of that you can but stay at My Side, knowing that,
as I Am the very Way itself, nothing can prevent your being in the Way, nothing can cause you
to stray. I have promised Peace but not leisure, heartrest and comfort, but not pleasure. I have said,
“In the world ye shall have tribulation”; so do not feel, when adverse things happen, that you have failed
or are not being guided, but I have said, “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
So learn of Me the overcoming Power of one who,
though spat upon, scourged, misunderstood, forsaken,
crucified, could yet see His Work had not been affected by
these things, cry triumphantly from His Cross, “It is finished.”
Not the pain, the mocking, the agony, but His Task. Let this thought
comfort you. Amid failure, discord, contumely, suffering, may angels
be prepared to sound the chorus, “It is finished.”
Now unto Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you
stand in the presence of His Glory blameless with great joy, the only God our
Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority,
before all time and now and forever. Amen. Jude 1:24-25
