• “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr

May 26 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

The Lord beareth your murmurings, which ye murmur against Him.–EX. xvi. 8.

Without murmur, uncomplaining In His hand, Leave whatever things thou canst not Understand.
K. R. HAGENBACH.
One great characteristic of holiness is never to be exacting–never to complain. Each complaint drags us down a degree, in our upward course. If you would discern in whom God’s spirit dwells, watch that person, and notice whether you ever hear him murmur.
GOLD DUST.
When we wish things to be otherwise than they are, we lose sight of the great practical parts of the life of godliness. We wish, and wish–when, if we have done all that lies on us, we should fall quietly into the hands of God. Such wishing cuts the very sinews of our privileges and consolations. You are leaving me for a time; and you say that you wish you could leave me better, or leave me with some assistance: but, if it is right for you to go, it is right for me to meet what lies on me, without a wish that I had less to meet, or were better able to meet it.
R. CECIL.

Verse of the Day

Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain. — Philippians 2:14-16 (NKJV)
