This book is not for any but the true seeker of knowledge because the author's language is dated and difficult to follow For me it was a gem The author answered many uestions that I did not know I had about my spiritual life uestions like If I have truly turned my life over to Christ why am I still so flawed and How does one really turn your burden over to him I know why it has been a Christian best seller for 150 years I love her approach to Christianity The chapters are really short about 3 4 pages and each day provided me with tons of food for thought

review The Christian's Secret to a Happy Life

The Christian's Secret to a Happy LifeEssion temptation failure and much Your faith consecration and obedience to the will of God will be nurtured and strengthened through the wise counsel of this beloved author Hannah Whitall Smith The joy o. “Perfect obedience would be perfect happiness if only we had perfect confidence in the power we were obeying” Hannah Whitall SmithFirst published in 1874 Smith’s classic of Christian living pre dates many subseuent Christian works “It is a fatal mistake to make our emotions the test of our oneness with Christ If I have joyous emotions I may be deluded by thinking I have entered into Divine union when I have not; and if I have no emotions I may grieve over my failure to enter when really I have already entered Character is the only real test God is holy and those who are one with Him will be holy also” Hannah Whitall SmithReaders must understand that Smith defines happy differently than many of her contemporaries and many of us If anything her life was far from easy or happy in the sense we use that word Nevertheless this book has influenced Christians sinceIn 1870 Hannah Whitall Smith wrote what has become a classic of joyous Christianity The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life The title barely hints at the depths of that perceptive book It is no shallow four easy steps to successful living Studiously the writer defines the shape of a full and abundant life hid in God Then she carefully reveals the difficulties to this way and finally charts the results of a life abandoned to God What is the Christian's secret to a happy life It is best summed up by her chapter entitled The Joy of Obedience Joy comes through obedience to Christ and joy results from obedience to Christ Without obedience joy is hollow and artificial Richard J Foster Celebration of Discipline “Many Christians love God’s will in the abstract but carry great burdens in connection with it But if the work is His the responsibility is His also and we have no room left for worrying about the results” Hannah Whitall SmithAs Foster wrote this is not a “four easy steps” book In fact it’s slow going for modern readers Smith’s prose is clear and powerful but her sentences are long and complex It’s worth the effort“Nearly everything in life comes to us through human instrumentalities and most of our trials are the result of somebody’s failure or ignorance or carelessness or sin What is needed then is to see God in everything and to receive everything directly from His hands before we can know an abiding experience of entire abandonment and perfect trust To the children of God everything comes directly from their Father’s hand no matter who or what may have been the apparent agents” Hannah Whitall Smith
