• “I live, therefore, as well as I can express it, out of myself and all other creatures, in union with God. It is thus that God, by His sanctifying grace, has become to me All in all.” – Madame Guyon

Joy and Strength 10/07

As his share is that goeth down to the battle, so shall his share be that tarrieth by the stuff: they shall share alike.
1 Sam. xxx. 24 (R. V.).

Worship or service, — which?
Ah, that is best To which He calls us, be it toil or rest, —
To labor for Him in life’s busy stir.
Or seek His feet, a silent worshipper.
Caroline A. Mason.

LET us no more yearn for present employment when God’s providence bids us “be still,” than we would think it good to yearn after cessation while God bids work. Shall we not miss a blessing if we call rest a weariness and a discontent, no less than if we called God’s work a thankless labor? If we would be holy in body and spirit, shall we not keep smooth brow, light heart, whether He bids us serve His table, or wait our summons?
Edward White Benson.

He who acts with a view to please God alone, wishes to have that only which it pleases God that he should have, and at the time and in the way which may be most agreeable to Him; and, whether he have it or not, he is equally tranquil and contented, because in either case he obtains his wish, and fulfils his intention, which was no other than purely to please God.
Lorenzo Scupoli
