• “Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Joy and Strength 09/26

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.
Ps. xxxvii. 5.

Plan not, nor scheme, — but calmly wait;
His choice is best.
While blind and erring is thy sight.
His wisdom sees and judges right.
So trust and rest.
Adelaide A. Procter

“GREAT peace have they which love My law.” They see that from Me, the sovereign Ruler of the world, who governeth all things with infinite wisdom, order, and love, nothing but good can spring; and that I can take care of them and their affairs far better and more successfully than they could of themselves. Thus, considering that all that happens to them comes from Me, they are strong with an invincible patience, and bear all things, not only with resignation, but with cheerfulness and joy, tasting in all things that befall them externally or internally the sweetness of My ineffable love. And this is to believe, and meditate with a cheerful and grateful spirit, even in the midst of tribulations and difficulties, that it is I who sweetly dispose all things, and that whatever happens springs from the inexhaustible fountain of My goodness.
St. Catharine of Siena
