Strength Today

Do not be afraid of the things you are about to suffer. The devil is about to have some of you thrown into prison so you may be tested, and you will experience suffering for ten days. Remain faithful even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown that is life itself. 

[Rev 2:10]

Then, O my soul, be ne’er afraid,

On Him who thee and all things made

Do thou all calmly rest;

Whate’er may come, where’er we go,

Our Father in the heavens must know

In all things what is best.

~ PAUL FLEMMING ~

Guide me, O Lord, in all the changes and varieties of the world; that in all things that shall happen, I may have an evenness and tranquillity of spirit; that my soul may be wholly resigned to Thy divinest will and pleasure, never murmuring at Thy gentle chastisements and fatherly correction. Amen.

~ JEREMY TAYLOR ~

Thou art never at any time nearer to God than when under tribulation; which He permits for the purification and beautifying of thy soul. 

~ M. DE MOLINOS ~

Prize inward exercises, griefs, and troubles; and let faith and patience have their perfect work in them.

~ I. PENINGTON ~
