• “We need Jesus!…He is our joy…without Him, the world and all it calls good, is poverty, wretchedness and woe! With Him, a wilderness is a paradise, a cottage a palace and the lowliest spot of earth a little heaven below” – Mary Winslow

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

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
