_Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve_.–MATT. iv. 10.
_Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart_.–PS. cxix. 2.
The comfort of a mind at rest From every care Thou hast not blest; A heart from all the world set free, To worship and to wait on Thee.
A. L. WARING.
Resign every forbidden joy; restrain every wish that is not referred to His will; banish all eager desires, all anxiety. Desire only the will of God; seek Him alone, and you will find peace.
FRANÇOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON.
“I’ve been a great deal happier since I have given up thinking about what is easy and pleasant, and being discontented because I couldn’t have my own will. Our life is determined for us; and it makes the mind very free when we give up wishing, and only think of bearing what is laid upon us, and doing what is given us to do.”
