"When preaching on Isaiah 27:5, which says - "Let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with Me," Mr. Toller of Kettering at once threw a flood of light on the text, and melted his audience into tenderness and tears, by saying, "I think I can convey the meaning of this passage so that every one may understand it by what took place in my own family within these last few days.

"One of my little children had committed a fault for which I thought it my duty to chastise him. I called him to me, explained to him the evil of what he had done, and told him how grieved I was that I must punish him for it. He heard me in silence, and then rushed into my arms, and burst into tears. I would have sooner cut off my arms than have then struck him for his fault. He had taken hold of my strength, and he had made peace with me." -- Sunday at Home.

I take that to mean that God's Mercy is His strength. I like that.

Hi Fred :)

Very interesting and informative post.

Children always have a very disarming way of scotching the anger of a parent.

Have a good day :)

Yes, with your large family I'm sure you have lived this many times. Children are heart attackers.
