• “They only did what God permitted them to do, which enabled me always to keep God in sight… When we suffer, we should always remember that God inflicts the blow. Wicked men, it is true, are not infrequently His instruments; and the fact does not diminish, but simply develops their wickedness. But when we are so mentally disposed that we love the strokes we suffer, regarding them as coming from God, and as expressions of what He sees best for us, we are then in the proper state to look forgivingly and kindly upon the subordinate instrument which He permits to smite us.” – Madame Guyon

One Thing I Can Do (or I thank Thee, Lord, that I can cast) by Ora Teasley

1 I thank Thee, Lord, that I can cast
My burdens all on Thee;
Though I be tempted, Thou has died
To bear them all for me.

Refrain:
O Jesus, I will cling to Thee,
I’ll love Thee more and more;
I’ll place my trembling hand in Thine
Until the battle’s o’er.

2 Though tried and pressed, yet I will trust,
This one thing I can do;
I’ll lean upon Thy loving breast,
Thou’lt guide me safely through. [Refrain]

3 Though raging storms about me sweep,
And fiery billows roll,
To Thee, dear Lord, I humbly trust
The keeping of my soul. [Refrain]
