A Quiet Heart (Spurgeon’s Faith’s Checkbook)

From Charles Spurgeon’s “Faith’s Checkbook”
A Quiet Heart
December 12
In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength. (Isaiah 30:15)

It is always weakness to be fretting and worrying, questioning and mis-trusting. What can we do if we wear ourselves to skin and bone? Can we gain anything by fearing and fuming? Do we not unfit ourselves for action and unhinge our minds for wise decision? We are sinking by our struggles when we might float by faith.
Oh, for grace to be quiet! Why run from house to house to repeat the weary story which makes us more and more heart-sick as we tell it? Why even stay at home to cry out in agony because of wretched forebodings which may never be fulfilled? It would be well to keep a quiet tongue, but it would be far better if we had a quiet heart. Oh, to be still and know that Jehovah is God!
Oh, for grace to be confident in God! The holy One of Israel must defend and deliver His own. He cannot run back from His solemn declarations. We may make sure that every word of His will stand though the mountains should depart. He deserves to be confided in; and if we would display confidence and consequent quietness, we might be as happy as the spirits before the throne.
Come, my soul, return unto thy rest, and lean thy head upon the bosom of the Lord Jesus.

To Others an “Example” (Spurgeon’s Faith’s Checkbook)

From Charles Spurgeon’s “Faith’s Checkbook”
To Others an “Example”
March 16
Those things, which ye have both Warned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do; and the God of peace shall be with you. (Philippians 4:9)

It is well when a man can with advantage be so minutely copied as Paul might have been. Oh, for grace to imitate him this day and every day!
Should we, through divine grace, carry into practice the Pauline teaching, we may claim the promise which is now open before us; and what a promise it is! God, who loves peace, makes peace, and breathes peace, will be with us. “Peace be with you” is a sweet benediction; but for the God of peace to be with us is far more. Thus we have the fountain as well as the streams, the sun as well as his beams. If the God of peace be with us, we shall enjoy the peace of God which passeth all understanding, even though outward circumstances should threaten to disturb. If men quarrel, we shall be sure to be peacemakers, if the Maker of peace be with us.
It is in the way of truth that real peace is found. If we quit the faith or leave the path of righteousness under the notion of promoting peace, we shall be greatly mistaken. First pure, then peaceable, is the order of wisdom and of fact. Let us keep to Paul’s line, and we shall have the God of peace with us as He was with the apostle.

Private Investigator, Freddie Flynn, is at the top of her game, hoping to become a partner in the P.I. firm, only to find that her past with the new Vice President, Jason Bryant, might put those plans in jeopardy.  It was hard enough for her to forgive him for the past much less have to work with him.  But when they are thrown together as a team, Freddie finds out that there is even more to the partnership, and that she has to trust Jason to save not only the case she is secretly working on, but ultimately her own life.

Jason Bryant has just returned from working as a pilot on the mission field, to take a job with his family’s friend that Jason grew up calling Uncle Eddie, in a P.I. firm.  Having accepted a job as Vice President of the company, Jason kept himself busy working with different private investigators, testing their abilities and loyalty to the company.  Having gained a notorious reputation for firing people, Jason was not prepared for his next assignment, nor the partner he would have to work with.  They had a past, and the hurt from that past was evident in both of their reactions to working together.  Jason would have to learn to trust Freddie once again, for both their sakes.  How could he ever forgive her for the kiss he saw?  Had he really been responsible for her turning away from God?  Was Uncle Eddie right, that Freddie was not to be trusted?  What is this case that Freddie is secretly working on and why is Uncle Eddie so adamant about stopping her from working on it?  Finally, could he help turn her back to Jesus Christ, and win her love back?
