Joy and Strength 09/23

Take heed, and he quiet; fear not, neither be faint-hearted.
Isa. vii. 4.

THOUGH everything without fall into confusion, and though thy body be in pain and suffering, and thy soul in desolation and distress, yet let thy spirit be unmoved by it all, placid and serene, delighted in and with its God inwardly, and with His good pleasure outwardly.
Gerhard Tersteegen.

To say each morning, “I must have things weariful, painful, to bear today, and they shall all be offered up beforehand as my heart’s sacrifice; they shall be, not fought against, but received calmly and as welcome, for His sake who suffers them to come,” gives a dignity, a purpose, nay, a very joy to what otherwise is all cheerless annoyance.
H. L. Sidney Lear.

As soon as anything presents itself to your mind as a suffering, and you feel a repugnance to it, resign yourself immediately to God with respect to it; give yourself up to Him in sacrifice, and you will find that, when the cross arrives, it will not be so very burdensome, because you had disposed yourself to a willing reception of it.
Madame Guyon
