February 23 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Let the Lord do that which is good in His sight.–I CHRON. xix. 13.
Let Thy mercy O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in Thee.–PS. XXXIII. 22.

I cannot feel That all is well, when darkening clouds conceal The shining sun; But then, I know He lives and loves; and say, since it is so, Thy will be done.
S. G. BROWNING.
No felt evil or defect becomes divine until it is inevitable; and only when resistence to it is exhausted and hope has fled, does surrender cease to be premature. The hardness of our task lies here; that we have to strive against the grievous things of life, while hope remains, as if they were evil; and then, when the stroke has fallen, to accept them from the hand of God, and doubt not they are good. But to the loving, trusting heart, all things are possible; and even this instant change, from overstrained will to sorrowful repose, from fullest resistance to complete surrender is realized without convulsion.
J. MARTINEAU.
