• “Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace.–JOB xxii. 21.
_All thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children_.–ISA. liv. 13.

Unite, my roving thoughts, unite In silence soft and sweet; And thou, my soul, sit gently down At thy great Sovereign’s feet.
P. DODDRIDGE.
Yes! blessed are those holy hours in which the soul retires from the world to be alone with God. God’s voice, as Himself, is everywhere. Within and without, He speaks to our souls, if we would hear. Only the din of the world, or the tumult of our own hearts, deafens our inward ear to it. Learn to commune with Him in stillness, and He, whom thou hast sought in stillness, will be with thee when thou goest abroad.
E. B. PUSEY.
The great step and direct path to the fear and awful reverence of God, is to meditate, and with a sedate and silent hush to turn the eyes of the mind inwards; there to seek, and with a submissive spirit wait at the gates of Wisdom’s temple; and then the Divine Voice and Distinguishing Power will arise in the light and centre of a man’s self.
THOMAS TRYON.
