Psalm 31:19-21

Oh how Great is Thy Goodness, which Thou hast Laid Up for them that Fear Thee;
Which Thou hast Wrought for them that Trust in Thee Before the Sons of Men!
Thou shalt Hide them in the Secret of Thy Presence from the Pride of Man:
Thou shalt Keep them Secretly in a Pavilion from the Strife of Tongues.
Blessed be the LORD: for he hath Shewed me His Marvellous Kindness in a Strong City.

“And they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.”
- Acts 4:13

A Christian should be a striking likeness of Jesus Christ. You have read
lives of Christ, beautifully and eloquently written, but the best life of
Christ is his living biography, written out in the words and actions of
his people. If we were what we profess to be, and what we should be, we
should be pictures of Christ; yea, such striking likenesses of him, that
the world would not have to hold us up by the hour together, and say,
“Well, it seems somewhat of a likeness;” but they would, when they once
beheld us, exclaim, “He has been with Jesus; he has been taught of him; he
is like him; he has caught the very idea of the holy Man of Nazareth, and
he works it out in his life and every-day actions.” A Christian should be
like Christ in his boldness. Never blush to own your religion; your
profession will never disgrace you: take care you never disgrace that. Be
like Jesus, very valiant for your God. Imitate him in your loving spirit;
think kindly, speak kindly, and do kindly, that men may say of you, “He
has been with Jesus.” Imitate Jesus in his holiness. Was he zealous for
his Master? So be you; ever go about doing good. Let not time be wasted:
it is too precious. Was he self-denying, never looking to his own
interest? Be the same. Was he devout? Be you fervent in your prayers. Had
he deference to his Father’s will? So submit yourselves to him. Was he
patient? So learn to endure. And best of all, as the highest portraiture
of Jesus, try to forgive your enemies, as he did; and let those sublime
words of your Master, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they
do,” always ring in your ears. Forgive, as you hope to be forgiven. Heap
coals of fire on the head of your foe by your kindness to him.
Good for evil, recollect, is godlike.
Be godlike, then; and in all ways and by all means, so live that all may
say of you, “He has been with Jesus.

Lincoln’s Testimony
Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory? —Luke 24:26

Abraham Lincoln was a backwoodsman who rose from humble beginnings to the heights of political power. During the dark days of the US Civil War, he served as a compassionate and resolute president. Depression and mental pain were his frequent companions. Yet the terrible emotional suffering he endured drove him to receive Jesus Christ by faith.

Lincoln told a crowd in his hometown in Illinois: “When I left Springfield, I asked the people to pray for me; I was not a Christian. When I buried my son, the severest trial of my life, I was not a Christian. But when I saw the graves of thousands of our soldiers, I then and there consecrated myself to Christ. I do love Jesus.” Life’s most painful tragedies can bring us to a deeper understanding of the Savior.

When two men walked the road to Emmaus, they were dumbfounded by the senseless murder of Jesus of Nazareth. Then a stranger joined them and gave scriptural insight about the suffering Messiah (Luke 24:26-27). The stranger was Jesus Himself, and His ministry to them brought comfort.

Heartache has a way of pointing us to the Lord Jesus, who has shared in our sufferings and can bring meaning to seemingly senseless pain.

Though tragedy, heartache, and sorrow abound
And many a hardship in life will be found,
Just put all your trust in the Savior of light,
For He can bring hope in the darkest of night.  —D. De Haan

Suffering can teach us what we can’t learn in any other way.

Bible in One Year: Leviticus 10–12; Proverbs 17:1-14

I like the photograph - how old is it? There seems to be less gray in the president’s hair.

Thank you for your Faithfulness in Prayer, Rose of His Garden. I'm not Sure of when the Picture of our Brother-President was Taken, but it Must have been at Least Several Years Ago. I Found that Picture in my Laptop Recently, and had Forgotten I had it.

May the Best Blessings of Heaven be yours, King's Daughter, through His Love and Grace.

~Unto Thee, O God, Do we Give Thanks~
