His Thoughts Said... His Father Said... - by Amy Carmichael

Amy Carmichael always has a beautiful and simple way of expressing truth - and she does it in a way that shows her readers how much she has wrestled herself.  This little booklet is a collection of thoughts: ones that might gather in the dusty places of our minds as we navigate our life and ministry - and the responding idea of what our Heavenly Father might say to us.

One example, an entry that I loved:

"The Son said, 'I think of the pain of life that is perpetual for so many who live to serve their fellows.  Is it all worthwhile?'

His Father said, 'Those who serve their generation are like the sailors that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters.  But it is these, not those who play in the shallows, who see the works of the Lord and His wonders in the deep.  Is not that worthwhile?'"  (entry 93)

For any who might need a reminder of His truths when our thoughts war against ourselves, I highly recommend this book.
