• Words of Cheer for Daily Life

    Words of Cheer for Daily LifeWords of Cheer for Daily Life by Charles H. Spurgeon.

    Spurgeon points people to their faith in God for finding joy in life. Spurgeon said "I am the subject of depressions of spirit so fearful that I hope none of you ever get to such extremes of misery as I go to, but I always get back again by this—I know I trust Christ. I have no reliance but in him, and if he falls I shall fall with him, but if he does not, I shall not. Because he lives, I shall live also, and I spring to my legs again and fight with my depression of spirit and my melancholy, and get the victory through it. So may you, and so you must, for there is no other way of escaping from it. In your most depressed seasons you are to get joy and peace through believing." The twenty-one chapters are excerpts of sermons that have to do with joy and hope in Christ. The text is updated to modern language.

  • The Silver Lining

    The Silver LiningThe Silver Lining: Messages of Hope and Cheer by John H. Jowett.

    Knowing the silver lining in life requires the discernment of Biblical principles. This book shows applications of Romans 8:28 with examples to help a person rest in God. Sorrow can accomplish what comfort and calm prosperity would always fail to do, because sometimes the tempest is needed to bring out the power and strength in one’s music. Loneliness has the silver lining of drawing us to the presence of the understanding Lord. Waiting produces eagles wings which moves our mind to things above. Clouds in life are a dwelling place of God and bring “fertilizing rains”—“The cloud experience is the minister not only of enrichment, but of enlargement.” John J. Jowett brings messages of encouragement and joy to help a believer know God’s goodness.

    Seeing Jesus is about knowing the living Jesus as a person and as a friend, not just confession of faith and assentation to truth. James Kimball speaks to his audience as a letter to a friend, so everyday people in everyday circumstances can relate to his scriptural advice. “This, then, is a heart offering ‘from the heart to the heart’ of those who are waiting for the promised manifestation of the Lord Jesus.” “Loving Jesus, and trying in all things to promote His interests and wishes must inevitably result in the consciousness of His nearness and love.” “To love Jesus with all the heart, soul, mind, and strength is to see Him. As is our love so must be the vision.”

  • Happiness

    HappinessHappiness: Discourses Delivered at Geneva by Agénor de Gasparin. Translated by Mary L. Booth. Introduction by Rev. Edward N. Kirk.

    Drawing on the beatitudes, the experiments of King Solomon in Ecclesiastes, and many other Scriptures, Count Gasparin formulated how God gives happiness to people. Gasparin states that happiness is a product of redemption only. Holiness is happiness and sin is misery; therefore, true happiness only starts at conversion because of mankind’s total depravity. From there happiness is lived out through obedience, accomplishing God’s work given to us, as well as prayer and dependence.
