• “Is it possible that you can trust your fellow men…that you can commit your dearest earthly interests to your weak, failing fellow creatures without a fear, and are afraid to commit your spiritual interests to the Saviour who laid down His life for you, and of whom it is declared that He is “able to save to the uttermost all who come unto God by Him”? – Hannah Whitall Smith

October 13 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_We desire that every one of you do show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end_.–HEB. vi. 11.
The Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.–2 THESS. iii. 3.

Long though my task may be, Cometh the end. God’t is that helpeth me, His is the work, and He New strength will lend.
ANON.
Set yourself steadfastly to those duties which have the least attractive exterior; it matters not whether God’s holy will be fulfilled in great or small matters. Be patient with yourself and your own failings; never be in a hurry, and do not yield to longings after that which is impossible to you. My dear sister, go on steadily and quietly; if our dear Lord means you to run, He will “strengthen your heart.”
ST. FRANCIS DE SALES.
Always begin by doing that which costs me most, unless the easier duty is a pressing one. Examine, classify, and determine at night the work of the morrow; arrange things in the order of their importance, and act accordingly. Dread, above all things, bitterness and irritation. Never say, or indirectly recall anything to my advantage.
MADAME SWET CHINE,

  • “We are women, and my plea is Let me be a woman, holy through and through, asking for nothing but what God wants to give me, receiving with both hands and with all my heart whatever that is.” – Elisabeth Elliot
