Joy and Strength 01/11

The secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him; and He will show them His covenant.
Ps. XXV. 14

Then shall my days be Thine,
And all ray heart be love;
And joy and peace be mine,
Such as are known above.
Come, Holy Spirit, quickly come.
And make my heart Thy lasting home.
Andrew Reed

IT is a sign that the soul is living in God, if it maintain calmness within through the consciousness of His Presence, while working for Him in active ministrations. Such restfulness will show itself in the commonest ways, in doing common duties at the right time, in preserving a sweetness and evenness of temper in the midst of ordinary interruptions and disturbances, in walking to and fro quietly on the day’s varied errands, in speaking gentle words, in sweetly meeting unexpected calls. A calm, restful temper grows as self is learning to lose itself in God. Such grace tells gradually on the daily life; even the minutest detail may be brought under the power of God, and carried out in union with Him.
