Joy and Strength 04/07

When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then Thou knewest my path.
Ps. cxlii. 3.

The work which we count so hard to do.
He makes it easy, for He works too;
The days that are long to live are His, —
A bit of His bright eternities;
And close to our need His helping is.
Susan Coolidge.

DO not yield to the temptation of looking at everything at once^ as if everything would happen at once, and all the events of the day be crowded into an hour. Do not thus forecast, but take each thing as it comes to you, and look upon it as the present expression of the will of God concerning you; then regard the next in the same way, and thus receive your day piece by piece from Him who will remember always when He gives you work to do, that you need strength to do it.

Often, when you have almost fainted in spirit, the thought comes, “If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, what shalt thou do with the horsemen? “Put it from you, it is a faithless thought; if you need more strength, you will have it, be sure of that; or the call to greater exertion may never come to you. Your business is with the present; leave the future in His hands who will be sure to do the best, the very best for you.
