Strength Today

Answer me, O Lord, for your loyal love is good! Because of your great compassion, turn toward me!

[Ps 69:16]

May your loyal love console me, as you promised your servant.

[Ps 119:76]


Love divine has seen and counted

Every tear it caused to fall;

And the storm which Love appointed

Was its choicest gift of all.

O that thou couldst dwell in the knowledge and sense of this! even, that the Lord beholds thy sufferings with an eye of pity; and is able, not only to uphold thee under them, but also to do thee good by them. Therefore, grieve not at thy lot, be not discontented, look not out at the hardness of thy condition; but, when the storm and matters of vexation are sharp, look up to Him who can give meekness and patience, can lift up thy head over all, and cause thy life to grow, and be a gainer by all. If the Lord God help thee proportionably to thy condition of affliction and distress, thou wilt have no cause to complain, but to bless His name.
