Wait

Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart; wait, I say, on the Lord.

PSALMS 27:14


ASK not that my course be calm and still;

No, here too, Lord, be done Thy holy will:

ask but for a quiet childlike heart;

Though thronging cares and restless toil be mine,

Yet may my heart remain forever Thine;

Draw it from earth, and fix it where Thou art.

C. J. P. SPITTA


TRUE union with God is to do His will without ceasing, in spite of all our natural disinclination, in all the wearisome and painful duties of our condition.

FRANCOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON


When persons have learnt to look upon the daily course of their ordinary life, with its duties and troubles, however common-place, as their offering to God, and as the safest school for themselves of perfec­tion, they will have made a very important step in the spiritual life. Another step, so simple that it is often despised, is to do everything, however ordinary, as well as it can possibly be done, for God's sake. A third is to be always pressing forward; when a mistake is made, or a fault committed, to face and admit it freely; but having asked God to supply the deficiency caused by our own infirmity, to go on steadfastly and hopefully.
