Quote from "Stepping Heavenward" by Mrs. E. Prentiss

"She says I shall now have one mouth more to fill and two feet the more to shoe, more disturbed nights, more laborious days, and less leisure or visiting, reading, music and drawing.

Well! This is one side of the story, to be sure, but I look at the other.

Here is a sweet, fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God; and the body in which dwells is worthy of all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ's name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation my other dear darlings had left me. Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her tenderest cares, to her lifelong prayers! Oh, how rich I am, how truly, wondrously blest!"

Book Review: Fresh Encounter by Henry & Richard Blackaby, and Claude King

This fall our Wednesday night Bible study went through the book "Fresh Encounter, God's Pattern for Spiritual Awakening."   I highly recommend it, especially if you are in a dry place and want a revival in your own life with the Lord.   It describes what revivals are, why God's people depart from Him, the Biblical record of revivals, the history of the Great Awakening and other revivals, worship and revival, and so much more.   It's a great read. 

Fresh Encounter

I'll end with a great quote from the book.  "God's people cannot continue doing business as usual and expect something extraordinary to occur.  For an extraordinary work to happen, our commitment and the caliber of our walk with God must also be extraordinary  Oh that it would be so!"
