Joy and Strength 10/30

In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.
Isa. xxx. 15.

Be still, my soul — for just as thou art still.
Can God reveal Himself to thee; until
Through thee His love, and light, and life can freely flow.
In stillness God can work through thee and reach
The souls around thee.
He then through thee can teach
His lessons — and His power in weakness show.
Bessie Porter.

WE are always wanting to be doing, to be giving, to be planning for the future, to be mapping out all our life; instead of resting and receiving day by day, leaving the morrow to our God, and rejoicing in Jesus Christ amidst all our falls and failures. Instead of going on rejoicing in Jesus, we are tempted to despond, and to go on desponding, after every failure, negligence, and sin.
George H. Wilkinson.

We seek God afar off, in projects perhaps altogether unattainable, and we do not consider that we possess Him now in the midst of confusion, by the exercise of simple faith, provided we bear humbly and bravely the annoyances which come from others, and our own imperfections.
FRAN9OIS DE LA MOTHE FeNELON.
