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, though the word is, ‘THINK IT NOT STRANGE . . . COUNT IT ALL JOY,’ then I know nothing of Calvary love.
I am returning to posting If questions from Amy Carmichael’s powerful little book by the same name. I invite to you follow along this journey. I pray you will be drawn to Calvary love.
I am giving away a copy of this book the next two Sundays along with a little olive wood cross donated by my friend Cindee Re. To enter please share one of the daily If posts on social media (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) with the tags #CalvaryLove and #If. Add a comment here on the blog post you share. Martha Hutcheson and Gina Weeks are the winners from week one and two.
Let’s meet at the foot of the cross together.
