• “When God was pleased to call me to Christ’s mission, which is a mission of peace and love to the sinful and the wandering, He taught me that I must be willing to be, in some sense, a partaker in Christ’s sufferings.” – Madame Guyon

May 21 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day long_.–DEUT. xxxiii. 12.

Whate’er events betide, Thy will they all perform; Safe in Thy breast my head I hide, Nor fear the coming storm.
H. F. LYTE.
I have seemed to see a need of everything God gives me, and want nothing that He denies me. There is no dispensation, though afflictive, but either in it, or after it, I find that I could not be without it. Whether it be taken from or not given me, sooner or later God quiets me in Himself without it. I cast all my concerns on the Lord, and live securely on the care and wisdom of my heavenly Father. My ways, you know, are, in a sense, hedged up with thorns, and grow darker and darker daily; but yet I distrust not my good God in the least, and live more quietly in the absence of all by faith, than I should do, I am persuaded, if I possessed them.
JOSEPH ELIOT, 1664.
