Pithy gems from Hudson Taylor

   ~  ~  ~  ~

Many Christians estimate difficulties in the light of their own resources, and thus attempt little and often fail in the little they attempt. All of God's giants have been weak men who did great things for God, because they reckoned on His power and presence with them.

I am often so weak that I can't read my Bible or even pray.
I can only lie still in God's arms like a little child and trust.

Whatever is your best time in the day, give that to communion with God.

Depend on it! God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supply!

   ~  ~  ~  ~

I am no longer anxious about anything, as I realize the Lord is able to carry out His will—and His will is mine. It makes no matter where He places me, or how. That is rather for Him to consider than for me; for in the easiest positions, He must give me His grace; and in the most difficult, His grace is ever sufficient.

Christ is either Lord of all, or He is not Lord at all.
