• “How different the world would look, how different the state of our nation would be, if there were more sanctified priestly souls! These are souls who have the power to bless, for they intercede with sanctified hearts. They never begin their daily time of intercessory prayer without having first brought to the cross all that is unholy in their lives, so that their old self can be crucified there with Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb.” – Basilea Schlink

June 21 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Thou calledst in trouble, and. I delivered thee.–PS. lxxxi. 7.
Be strong, and of good courage; dread not, nor be dismayed.–I CHRON. xxii. 13.

Thou canst calm the troubled mind, Thou its dread canst still; Teach me to be all resigned To my Father’s will.
HEINRICH PUCHTA.
Though this patient, meek resignation is to be exercised with regard to all outward things and occurrences of life, yet it chiefly respects our own inward state, the troubles, perplexities, weaknesses, and disorders of our own souls. And to stand turned to a patient, meek, humble resignation to God, when your own impatience, wrath, pride, and irresignation attack yourself, is a higher and more beneficial performance of this duty, than when you stand turned to meekness and patience, when attacked by the pride, or wrath, or disorderly passions of other people.
WM. LAW.
