Daily Strength

I glorified you on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.

John 17:4 NET

She did what she could. She anointed my body beforehand for burial.

Mark 14:8 NET

He who God’s will has borne and done,

And his own restless longings stilled,

What else he does, or has foregone,

His mission he has well fulfilled.

—FROM THE GERMAN

Cheered by the presence of God, I will do at each moment, without anxiety, according to the strength which He shall give me, the work that His Providence assigns me. I will leave the rest without concern; it is not my affair. I ought to consider the duty to which I am called each day, as the work that God has given me to do, and to apply myself to it in a manner worthy of His glory, that is to say, with exactness and in peace. I must neglect nothing; I must be violent about nothing.

—FRANÇOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON

It is thy duty oftentimes to do what thou wouldst not; thy duty, too, to leave undone what thou wouldst do.

—THOMAS À KEMPIS
