"Times of Testing”

There is no circumstance, no trouble, no testing, that

can ever touch me until, first of all, it has gone past

God and past Christ, right through to me. If it has

come that far, it has come with a great purpose,

which I may not understand at the moment. But I

refuse to become panicky, as I lift up my eyes to him

and accept it as coming from the throne of God for

some great purpose of blessing to my own heart.


I came from God, and I'm going back to God, and I

won't have any gaps of death in the middle of my life.


The joy of the Lord is your strength.

Nehemiah 8:10


You now have sorrow; but I will

see you again and your heart will rejoice,

and your joy no one will take from you.

John 16:22


You have made known to me the ways of life;

You will make me full of joy in Your presence.

Acts 2:28


Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.

Luke 6:21
