• “In all places and at all times, we can have that familiar friendship, we can have Him with us; and there may be through the day a constant interchange of private words, of little offerings, too small to have any name attached to them—by which the bonds of that familiar friendship grow closer and more real, until it comes to that special personal intimacy, which we call sanctity.” – Janet Erskine Stuart, 1857-1914

July 12 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_Be strong, and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid … for the Lord thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee_.–DEUT. xxxi. 6.

The timid it concerns to ask their way, And fear what foe in caves and swamps can stray, To make no step until the event is known, And ills to come as evils past bemoan. Not so the wise; no coward watch he keeps To spy what danger on his pathway creeps; Go where he will, the wise man is at home, His hearth the earth,–his hall the azure dome; Where his clear spirit leads him, there’s his road, By God’s own light illumined and foreshowed.
R. W. EMERSON.
Though I sympathize, I do not share in the least the feeling of being disheartened and cast down. It is not things of this sort that depress me, or ever will. The contrary things, praise, openings, the feeling of the greatness of my work, and my inability in relation to it, these things oppress and cast me down; but little hindrances, and closing up of accustomed or expected avenues, and the presence of difficulties to be overcome,–I’m not going to be cast down by trifles such as these.
JAMES HINTON.
