Carmichael: trials

Wednesday, March 20, 2019
    Feast of Cuthbert, Bishop of Lindisfarne, Missionary, 687
    My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
    —James 1:2-3 (KJV)
    If I ask to be delivered from trial rather than for deliverance out of it, to the praise of His glory; if I forget that the way of the Cross leads to the Cross and not to a bank of flowers; if I regulate my life on these lines, or even unconsciously my thinking, so that I am surprised when the way is rough and think it strange, “Think it not strange, Count it all joy,” then I know nothing of Calvary love.
    ... Amy Carmichael (1867-1951), If [1938], London: SPCK, 1961, p. 66 (see the book)
    See also Jas. 1:2-3; 1 Cor. 3:12-13; 10:13; 1 Thess. 3:2-4; 2 Tim. 3:12; Heb. 12:2,5-7; 1 Pet. 4:12; 5:8-9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, implant Your love in my heart.
