Daily Strength

The Lord deserves praise! Day after day he carries our burden, the God who delivers us. (Selah)

Ps 68:19 NET

Command those who are rich in this world’s goods not to be haughty or to set their hope on riches, which are uncertain, but on God who richly provides us with all things for our enjoyment.

1 Tim 6:17 NET

Source of my life’s refreshing springs,

Whose presence in my heart sustains me,

Thy love ordains me pleasant things,

Thy mercy orders all that pains me.

—A. L. WARING

And to be true, and speak my soul, when I survey the occurrences of my life, and call into account the finger of God, I can perceive nothing but an abyss and mass of mercies, either in general to mankind, or in particular to myself; and whether out of the prejudice of my affection, or an inverting and partial conceit of His mercies, I know not; but those which others term crosses, afflictions, judgments, misfortunes, to me who inquire farther into them than their visible effects, they both appear, and in event have ever proved, the secret and dissembled favors of His affection.

—SIR T. BROWNE
