March 29 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

There shall no evil befall thee.–PS. xci. 10.
_Whoso hearkeneth unto Me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil_.–PROV. i. 33.

I ask not, “Take away this weight of care;” No, for that love I pray that all can bear, And for the faith that whatsoe’er befall Must needs be good, and for my profit prove, Since from my Father’s heart most rich in love, And from His bounteous hands it cometh all.
C. J. P. SPITTA.
Be like the promontory, against which the waves continually break; but it stands firm, and tames the fury of the water around it. Unhappy am I, because this has happened to me? Not so, but happy am I, though this has happened to me, because I continue free from pain, neither crushed by the present, nor fearing the future. Will then this which has happened prevent thee from being just, magnanimous, temperate, prudent, secure against inconsiderate opinions and falsehood? Remember, too, on every occasion which leads thee to vexation to apply this principle: that this is not a misfortune, but that to bear it nobly is good fortune.
MARCUS ANTONINUS.
