Peace from God

Lord, Thou wilt ordain peace for us: for Thou hast also wrought all our works for us.

ISAIAH 26:12 (R. V.)


WITH that deep hush subduing all

Our words and works that drown

The tender whisper of Thy call,

As noiseless let Thy blessing fall

As fell the manna down.

JOHN G. WHITTIER


PRAY to be calm and quiet and hushed, and that He will vouchsafe you the sense of His blessed pres­ence; that you may do all things beneath His eye; to sit with Mary calmly at His feet and hear His voice, and then calmly rise and minister to Him.

EDWARD BOUVERIE PUSEY


Try so to live in the light of God's love that it becomes a second nature to you, tolerate nothing adverse to it, be continually striving to please Him in all things, take all that He sends patiently; resolve firmly never to commit the smallest deliberate fault, and if, unhappily you are overtaken by any sin, hum­ble yourself, and rise up speedily. You will not be always thinking of God consciously, but all your thoughts will be ruled by Him, His Presence will check useless or evil thoughts, and your heart will be perpetually fixed on Him, ready to do His holy will.
