Rejoicing in God's Love

By Mary Wilder Tileston

      My soul shall be joyful in the Lord; it shall rejoice in His salvation.
      PSALMS 25:9

      The living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.
      1 TIMOTHY 6:17

      Behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart.
      ISAIAH 65:14

      GIVE me, O Lord, a heart of grace,
      A voice of joy, a shining face,
      That I may show where'er I turn
      Thy love within my soul doth burn!

      A tenderness for all that stray,
      With strength to help them on the way
      A cheerfulness, a heavenly mirth,
      Brightening my steps along the earth!

      THOSE who love God are encompassed with gladness on every side, because in every passing moment they see and feel a Father's love, and nothing of this world can take it away or lessen it.

      To be happy is properly the beginning of all schemes for making happy.

      My life is so strangely free from all trial and trouble, that I cannot doubt my own happiness is one of the talents entrusted to me to "occupy" with, till the Master shall return, by doing something to make other lives happy.
