Joy and Strength 07/28

Thou openest Thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
Ps. cxlv. 16.

There’s not a craving in the mind
Thou dost not meet and still;
There’s not a wish the heart can have
Which Thou dost not fulfil.
Frederick W. Faber.

YOU will see the truth about the eternal life soon, I don’t think it is possible to live up to the highest point of duty and of happiness without this. I know one can go on doing one’s duty thoroughly under clouds of doubt, and even in complete unbelief; there are many who do, and they are dear to God, but the duty is done sadly, without the spring of life and joy that we are meant to have. That fountain of life and strength is hid in God. Christ showed us the way to it, and we get it into our souls when we utterly trust Him and give up our hearts, and our lives, and our aspirations to Him as to a faithful Creator, who will not leave unsatisfied any of the longings of the souls He has made; who will not let love die, or disappoint finally the cravings for joy, for perfection, for light and knowledge that He has implanted, and that are parts of Himself, immortal as He is.
Annie Keary.
