Joy and Strength 06/13

The Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He with-hold from them that walk uprightly.
Ps. Ixxxiv. 11.

Just to trust Him, this is all!
Then the day will surely be Peaceful, whatsoe’er befall.
Bright and blessed, calm and free.
Frances R. Havergal.

WHAT we should do is really, very often, to be still. And if we want something to make us more active and energetic, watchful and holy, I know but one thought, that is faith, — faith producing love. More trust and confidence and joy in God would be the secret — the only true or successful secret — of more goodness. And this should come quietly and calmly, not in great effort; this kingdom of God has come not with observation. Rest and quiet growth are what you want.
James Hinton.

Open wide every avenue of your being to receive the blessed influences your Divine Husbandman may bring to bear upon you. Bask in the sunshine of His love. Drink in of the waters of His goodness. Keep your face upturned to Him. You need make no efforts to grow. But let your efforts instead be all concentrated on this, that vou abide in the Vine.
Hannah Whitall Smith
