Oswald Says...On Joy

Right now I am using My Utmost For His Highest during my devotional time and many things are hitting me anew. That is why I'm sure you've noticed my little "Oswald Says" series. I am pulling quotes that particularly hit me that day or that week. I really could just copy the whole book here but there is not point in that. ;-) Here's what I read today:

Living a full and overflowing life does not rest in bodily health, in circumstances, nor even in seeing God’s work succeed, but in the perfect understanding of God, and in the same fellowship and oneness with Him that Jesus Himself enjoyed. But the first thing that will hinder this joy is the subtle irritability caused by giving too much thought to our circumstances.
A person who has the right relationship with God lives a life as natural as breathing wherever he goes. The lives that have been the greatest blessing to you are the lives of those people who themselves were unaware of having been a blessing.

Remember that what I quote here is just parts of the devotionals. Please go and read the entries in their entirety. You will surely be blessed. I know I am.
