May 28 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering with joyfulness_.–COL. I. 11.

God doth not need Either man’s works or His own gifts; who best Bear His mild yoke, they serve Him best; His state Is kingly; thousands at His bidding speed, And post o’er land and ocean without rest; They also serve who only stand and wait.
J. MILTON.
We cannot always be doing a great work, but we can always be doing something that belongs to our condition. To be silent, to suffer, to pray when we cannot act, is acceptable to God. A disappointment, a contradiction, a harsh word, an annoyance, a wrong received and endured as in His presence, is worth more than a long prayer; and we do not lose time if we bear its loss with gentleness and patience, provided the loss was inevitable, and was not caused by our own fault.
FRANÇOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON.
