• “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

May 19 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.–PS. xxxvii. 7.
Trust in Him at all times.–PS. lxii. 8.

Dost thou ask when comes His hour? Then, when it shall aid thee best. Trust His faithfulness and power, Trust in Him, and quiet rest.
ANON.
I had found [communion with God] to consist, not only in the silencing of the outward man, but in the silencing also of every thought, and in the concentration of the soul and all its powers into a simple, quiet watching and waiting for the food which its heavenly Father might see fit either to give or to withhold. In no case could it be sent empty away; for, if comfort, light, or joy were withheld, the act of humble waiting at the gate of heavenly wisdom could not but work patience in it, and thus render it, by humility and obedience, more “meet to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light,” and also more blessed in itself.
M. A. KELTY.
“REST IN THE LORD; WAIT PATIENTLY FOR HIM.” In Hebrew, “be silent to God, and let Him mould thee.” Keep still, and He will mould thee to the right shape.
MARTIN LUTHER.
