Moving Forward

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark.

PHILIPPIANS 3:13,14


TILL, as each moment wafts us higher,

By every gush of pure desire,

And high-breathed hopes of joys above,

By every sacred sigh we heave,

Whole years of folly we outlive,

In His unerring sight, who measures Life by Love.

JOHN KEBLE


WHAT we can do is a small thing; but we can will and aspire to great things. Thus, if a man can­not be great, he can yet be good in will; and what he, with his whole heart and mind, love and desire, wills to be, that without doubt he most truly is. It is little we can bring to pass; but our will and desire may be large. Nay, they may grow till they lose themselves in the infinite abyss of God. And if ye cannot be as entirely His as ye fain would be, be His as much as ye may attain unto; but, whatever ye are, be that truly and entirely; and what ye cannot be, that be con­tented not to be, in a sincere spirit of resignation, for God's sake and in Him. So shall you peradventure possess more of God in lacking than in having.
