The letters of Ruth Bryan” May 1845)
I know not your present malady; but
I know that Christ is the remedy for it!There is more in Christ for empty souls, than
pen or tongue of men or angels can count!
May you have free access, and eat and drink,
and forget your poverty–being taken up with
His riches, fullness, and glory! The Lord comfort
you, and establish your heart with grace. Adieu.
Yours affectionately, in our Beloved One,
MAY YOU HAVE FREE ACCESS
If so, you want something to give you rest.
So look where you will, there is no rest for the
sole of your foot.
But there is a rest. Our blessed Lord says, “Come to
Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens,
and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
“A soul that is altogether given up to
the love of Christ lives above care and
sorrow. It has care and sorrow, but
the love of Christ kills all the bitterness
by its inexpressible sweetness!”

When distressed in the hour of trial, say unto me, “Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you — I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
