  • Not Attained

  • NOT ATTAINED - 

    BY MARY WILDER TILESTON

    Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect; but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Jesus Christ. -PHILIPPIANS 3:12

    LET no man think that sudden in a minute

    All is accomplished and the work is done;--

    Though with thine earliest dawn thou shouldst begin it,

    Scarce were it ended in thy setting sun.

    …Now Abel kept flocks and Cain worked in the soil.  In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord. But Abel brought fat portions from some of the first born of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering, but on Cain he did not look with favor. So Cain was angry...

  • ACCEPT OUR DAILY BREAD -  

    BY MARY WILDER TILESTON

    I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therein to be content. -PHILIPPIANS 4:11 (R. V.)

  • Renewed  -  

    This devotional was written by Kelly McFadden

     

    The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we ma...

    Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him. -JOB 13:15

    Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction. -ISAIAH 48:10


    I WILL not let Thee go; Thou Help in time of need!

  • Thanksgiving: A Story of Persistence -  

    This devotional was written by Kelly McFadden

     

    Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. —Philippians 3:12-14

    This devotional was written by Leslie Snyder

     

    Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! —2 Corinthians 5:17

     

    A large yellow and black banner hangs in the gym where I work out with two words that stand out in large white lettering. It says very simply, “REDEFINE YOU.” It’s a constant reminder that I’m a work in progr...

  • EXERCISING SIMPLE FAITH

  • EXERCISING SIMPLE FAITH 

    BY MARY WILDER TILESTON

    In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength. -ISAIAH 30:15


    BE Still, MY soul--for just as thou art still, 

    Can God reveal Himself to thee; until

    Through thee His love, and light, and life can freely flow.

    In stillness God can work through thee and reach

    The souls around thee. He then through thee can teach

    His lessons--and His power in weakness...

  • BEARING THE STING

  • BEARING THE STING -  

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    "He opened not his mouth" (Isa. 53:7). 

    How much grace it requires to bear a misunderstanding rightly, and to receive an unkind judgment in holy sweetness! Nothing tests the Christian character more than to have some evil thing said about him. This is the file that soon proves whether we are electro-plate or solid gold. If we could only know the blessings...
