Book of Isaiah, Thomas Brooks, Thomas R. Kelly, Hymns for the Little Flock, Jean-Pierre de Caussade


Dear Readers,

As we slog through the challenges of life, it's so easy to forget that the Holy One
has already done the heavy lifting for us. God IS. Nothing has the power to chip
away at His complete, eternal victory. Even though we may feel like we're in a
fox hole with bullets whizzing by, the battle is already won. He has won it for us.
It is finished. Claim it and rejoice!

(For those who wish a traditional Easter site: The Grace of Jesus)

Let them give glory to the Lord
and proclaim his praise in the islands.

The Lord will march out like a mighty man,
like a warrior he will stir up his zeal;
with a shout he will raise the battle cry
and will triumph over his enemies.

Isaiah 42:12,13
The Holy Bible
New International Version


Grace and glory differ very little;
the one is the seed, the other is the flower;
grace is glory militant,
glory is grace triumphant.

Thomas Brooks (1880-1958)
British politician and spiritualist


...(T)he life of God is breaking through into the world.
Its execution is in peace and power and astounding
faith and joy, for in unhurried serenity the Eternal is
at work in the midst of time, triumphantly bringing
all things up unto Himself.

Excerpted from "A Testament of Devotion,"
by Thomas R. Kelly (1893-1941)
HarperOne, 1992


Behold the Lamb with glory crowned!
To Him all power is given;
No place too high for Him is found,
No place too high in heaven.

Hymn 125
From "Hymns for The Little Flock,"
Bible Truth Publishers, 1881

The Last Word:

Then run, faithful souls, happy and tireless,  keep up
with your beloved who marches with giant strides from
one end of heaven to the other. Nothing is hidden from
his eyes. He walks alike over the smallest blade of grass,
the tallest cedars, grains of sand or rocky mountains.

Wherever you go he has gone before.
Only follow him and you will find him everywhere.

Jean-Pierre de Caussade (1675-1751)
From "The Sacrament of the Present Moment."

Do the best you can, and don't take like too serious.
