December 15 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee_.–PS. cxvi. 7.
We which have believed do enter into rest.–HEB. iv. 3.

Rest is not quitting The busy career; Rest is the fitting Of self to its sphere.
‘T is loving and serving The highest and best! ‘T is onwards, unswerving,– And that is true rest.
J. S. DWIGHT.
As a result of this strong faith, the inner life of Catherine of Genoa was characterized, in a remarkable degree, by what may be termed rest, or quietude; which is only another form of expression for true interior peace. It was not, however, the quietude of a lazy inaction, but the quietude of an inward acquiescence; not a quietude which feels nothing and does nothing, but that higher and divine quietude which exists by feeling and acting in the time and degree of God’s appointment and God’s will. It was a principle in her conduct, to give herself to God in the discharge of duty; and to leave all results without solicitude in His hands.
T. C. UPHAM.

  • “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon
