The Ministry of Healing
Ellen G White
The Ministry of Healing is written in clear, simple, beautiful language; full of hope to the despondent, a message of cheer to the sick, and a rest to the weary. For over one hundred years The Ministry of Healing has conveyed its helpful message to millions of readers in many different countries of the world and in many different languages. This book presents to us a better way; it reveals the path to a simpler, sweeter life, full of joy and happiness.
Here is a sample of some of the beautiful passages to be found in The Ministry of Healing:
“In the full light of day, and in hearing of the music of other voices, the caged bird will not sing the song that his master seeks to teach him. He learns a snatch of this, a trill of that, but never a separate and entire melody. But the master covers the cage, and places it where the bird will listen to the one song he is to sing. In the dark, he tries and tries again to sing that song until it is learned, and he breaks forth in perfect melody. Then the bird is brought forth, and ever after he can sing that song in the light. Thus God deals with His children. He has a song to teach us, and when we have learned it amid the shadows of affliction, we can sing it ever afterward.”
“…..talk of Jesus’ willingness to bless. He does not forget us for one brief moment. When, notwithstanding disagreeable circumstances, we rest confidingly in His love, and shut ourselves in with Him, the sense of His presence will inspire a deep, tranquil joy.”
“He who is imbued with the Spirit of Christ abides in Christ. Whatever comes to him comes from the Saviour, who surrounds him with His presence. Nothing can touch him except by the Lord’s permission. All our sufferings and sorrows, all our temptations and trials, all our sadness and griefs, all our persecutions and privations, in short, all things work together for our good. All experiences and circumstances are God’s workmen whereby good is brought to us.”
“Prayer and Faith will do what no power on earth can accomplish.”
