_O fear the Lord, ye His saints: for there is no want to them that fear Him_–PS. xxxiv. 9.
_Thou openest Thine hand, and satisfies the desire of every living thing_.–PS. cxlv. 16.

What Thou shalt to-day provide, Let me as a child receive; What to-morrow may betide, Calmly to Thy wisdom leave. ‘Tis enough that Thou wilt care; Why should I the burden bear?
J. NEWTON.
Have we found that anxiety about possible consequences increased the clearness of our judgment, made us wiser and braver in meeting the present, and arming ourselves for the future? If we had prayed for this day’s bread, and left the next to itself, if we had not huddled our days together, not allotting to each its appointed task, but ever deferring that to the future, and drawing upon the future for its own troubles, which must be met when they come whether we have anticipated them or not, we should have found a simplicity and honesty in our lives, a capacity for work, an enjoyment in it, to which we are now, for the most part, strangers.
F. D. MAURICE.
