(Mary Winslow, “Words of Loving Counsel and Sympathy”)
“From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another!” John 1:16
What could we do in this wilderness world, beset with manifold temptations and trials within and without — had we not a God to go to — Jesus, an ever-present Help in times of trouble? He is our Helper in little matters, as in great ones. No one on earth, however dear, can take His place. We need Him as our Counselor and Guide, our Protector and Deliverer. How needful, then, and how sweet — to be ever sitting at His feet, looking up and meeting His loving eye, as it looks down upon us. Let us allow no distance between us and our dearest and best Friend.
Jesus indeed is very precious. Everything else sinks into its native nothingness when compared with Him…
All is given freely and fully. We come needy and helpless — and receive all from Him. to such as we are!
He is our dearest and best Friend!

Something to ponder:
“Dear friend, make God your Confidant. Carry to Him all your needs, disclose to Him all your sorrows, confide to Him all your secrets, confess to Him all your sins. He will do all, soothe all, supply all, and pardon all–for who is a God like Him? He cares for you, His loving heart is towards you, His unslumbering eye is upon you! Oh, how condescendingly kind and gentle is Jesus to poor sinners who feel their need of Him, and are conscious that they can do nothing without Him! You will always meet with a kind welcome from Jesus, come when you may and how you will.” Mary Winslow
