• “I have never before so learned to know the Lord Jesus as a tender, loving Friend, who never forsakes us or casts us off when we are bad, but rather helps us to gain the mastery over sin.” – Corrie ten Boom

October 12 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.–EPH. v. 19.
Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts.–I PETER iii. 15.

There are in this loud stunning tide Of human care and crime, With whom the melodies abide Of th’ everlasting chime; Who carry music in their heart Through dusky lane and wrangling mart, Plying their daily task with busier feet, Because their secret souls a holy strain repeat.
J. KEBLE.
Strive to carry thyself with a total resignation to the Divine Will, that God may do with thee and all thine according to His heavenly pleasure, relying on Him as on a kind and loving Father. Never recall that intention, and though thou be taken up about the affairs of the condition wherein God hath placed thee, yet thou wilt still be in prayer, in the presence of God, and in perpetual acts of resignation. “A just man leaves not off to pray unless he leaves off to be just.” He always prays who always does well. The good desire is prayer, and if the desire be continued so also is the prayer.
M. DE MOLINOS.
