That ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understandings that ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing.
Col. i. 9, 10.
Something for Thee! Lord, let this be
Thy choice for me from day to day;
The life I live it is not mine,
Thy will, my will, have made it Thine!
Oh, let me do in Thine own way Something for Thee!
ACT faithfully according to thy degree of light, and what God giveth thee to see; and thou shalt see more clearly. Hearken to the low whispers of His voice within thee, and thou shalt hear more distinctly. Above all, do not stifle any motions of conscience. Meditate daily on the things of Eternity ; and, by the grace of God, do something daily which thou wouldest wish to have done when that day Cometh. Above all things, in all things, ” look unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of thy faith.” If thou failest, look to Him to uphold thee; if thou stumblest, hold swift His hand to help thee; if thou failest, lie not hopelessly there, but look to Him to raise thee; if, by His grace, thou doest well, look to Him in thanksgiving, that He has helped thee, and pray that thou mayest do better.
Edward B. Pusey.
