Then Jesus said to him, “Go away, Satan! For it is written: ‘You are to worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’”

[Matt 4:10]

How blessed are those who observe his rules, and seek him with all their heart,

[Ps 119:2]

The comfort of a mind at rest

From every care Thou hast not blest;

A heart from all the world set free,

To worship and to wait on Thee.

~ A. L. WARING ~

Resign every forbidden joy; restrain every wish that is not referred to His will; banish all eager desires, all anxiety. Desire only the will of God; seek Him alone, and you will find peace.

~ FRANÇOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON ~

“I’ve been a great deal happier since I have given up thinking about what is easy and pleasant, and being discontented because I couldn’t have my own will. Our life is determined for us; and it makes the mind very free when we give up wishing, and only think of bearing what is laid upon us, and doing what is given us to do.”

~ GEORGE ELIOT ~
