Joy and Strength 06/04

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.
Jer. xvii. 7.

Thus will I live and walk from day to day.
Contented, trustful, satisfied, and still;
What life so shielded, or what life so free.
As that within the centre of Thy will!
Jane Woodfall.

FOLLOW Christ in the denial of all the wills of self and then all is put away that separates you from God; the heaven-born new creature will come to life in you, which alone knows and enjoys the things of God, and has his daily food of gladness in that manifold Blessed, and Blessed, which Christ preached on the mount.
William Law

Divine tranquillity grows from the life of God in the soul, which is the same as the life of pure love. Why should a soul be otherwise than tranquil, which seeks for nothing but what comes in the providence of God; and which, forgetful of self, has nothing to do but to love? It has an innate conviction, strong as the everlasting foundations, that, if there is a God above us, all is well, all must be well,
Thomas C. Upham.
