July 17 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us_.–ROM. viii. 18.
The power of an endless life.–HEB. vii. 16.

Believ’st thou in eternal things? Thou knowest, in thy inmost heart, Thou art not clay; thy soul hath wings, And what thou seest is but part. Make this thy med’cine for the smart Of every day’s distress; be dumb, In each new loss thou truly art Tasting the power of things that come.
T. W. Parsons.
Every contradiction of our will, every little ailment, every petty disappointment, will, if we take it patiently, become a blessing. So, walking on earth, we may be in heaven; the ill-tempers of others, the slights and rudenesses of the world, ill-health, the daily accidents with which God has mercifully strewed our paths, instead of ruffling or disturbing our peace, may cause His peace to be shed abroad in our hearts abundantly.
E. B. PUSEY.
