• “Do not lose yourself in your everyday work and activities. Rather, lose yourself in God. When you are doing work, let your innermost heart be centered on Him. Live in His presence and abide in Him. Then your work will follow you into eternity, and you will reap a rich harvest.” – Basilea Schlink

November 27 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

The Lord hath been mindful of us: He will bless us.–PS. cxv. 12.

My Father! what am I, that all Thy mercies sweet like sunlight fall So constant o’er my way? That Thy great love should shelter me, And guide my steps so tenderly Through every changing day?
ANON.
What a strength and spring of life, what hope and trust, what glad, unresting energy, is in this one thought,–to serve Him who is “my Lord,” ever near me, ever looking on; seeing my intentions before He beholds my failures; knowing my desires before He sees my faults; cheering me to endeavor greater things, and yet accepting the least; inviting my poor service, and yet, above all, content with my poorer love. Let us try to realize this, whatsoever, wheresoever we be. The humblest and the simplest, the weakest and the most encumbered, may love Him not less than the busiest and strongest, the most gifted and laborious. If our heart be clear before Him; if He be to us our chief and sovereign choice, dear above all, and beyond all desired; then all else matters little. That which concerneth us He will perfect in stillness and in power.
H. E. MANNING.
