• “But God is the God of the waves and the billows, and they are still His when they come over us; and again and again we have proved that the overwhelming thing does not overwhelm. Once more by His interposition deliverance came. We were cast down, but not destroyed.” – Amy Carmichael

Why Dost Thou Worry Thyself? – Streams in the Desert 06/01

“Speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward” (Exod. 14:15).

“This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing” (Isa. 28:12).

Why dost thou worry thyself? What use can thy fretting serve? Thou art on board a vessel which thou couldst not steer even if the great Captain put thee at the helm, of which thou couldst not so much as reef a sail, yet thou worriest as if thou wert captain and helmsman. Oh, be quiet; God is Master!

Dost thou think that all this din and hurly-burly that is abroad betokens that God has left His throne?

No, man, His coursers rush furiously on, and His chariot is the storm; but there is a bit between their jaws, and He holds the reins, and guides them as He wills! Jehovah is Master yet; believe it; peace be unto thee! be not afraid. –C. H. Spurgeon

“Tonight, my soul, be still and sleep;

The storms are raging on God’s deep–God’s deep, not thine; be still and sleep.

“Tonight, my soul, be still and sleep;

God’s hands shall still the tempter’s sweep–God’s hands, not thine; be still and sleep.

“Tonight, my soul, be still and sleep;

God’s love is strong while night hours creep–God’s love, not thine; be still and sleep.”

Tonight, my soul, be still and sleep;

God’s heaven will comfort those who weep–God’s heaven, not thine; be still and sleep.

“I entreat you, give no place to despondency. This is a dangerous temptation–a refined, not a gross temptation of the adversary. Melancholy contracts and withers the heart, and renders it unfit to receive the impressions of grace. It magnifies and gives a false colouring to objects, and thus renders your burdens too heavy to bear. God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of bringing about these designs, are infinitely wise. -Madame Guyon
