May 24 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby_.–HEB. xii. I1.

I cannot say, Beneath the pressure of life’s cares to-day, I joy in these; But I can say That I had rather walk this rugged way, If Him it please.
S. G. BROWNING.
The particular annoyance which befell you this morning; the vexatious words which met your ear and “grieved” your spirit; the disappointment which was His appointment for to-day; the slight but hindering ailment; the presence of some one who is “a grief of mind” to you,–whatever this day seemeth not joyous, but grievous, is linked in “the good pleasure of His goodness” with a corresponding afterward of “peaceable fruit,” the very seed from which, if you only do not choke it, this shall spring and ripen.
F. R. HAVERGAL.
