Yet do not depart quickly or leave in a panic. For the Lord goes before you; the God of Israel is your rear guard.
Therefore, this is what the sovereign master, the Lord, says: “Look, I am laying a stone in Zion, an approved stone, set in place as a precious cornerstone for the foundation. The one who maintains his faith will not panic.
Holy Spirit, Peace divine!
Still this restless heart of mine;
Speak to calm this tossing sea,
Stayed in Thy tranquillity.
~ S. LONGFELLOW ~
In whatever you are called upon to do, endeavor to maintain a calm, collected, and prayerful state of mind. Self-recollection is of great importance. “It is good for a man to quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.” He who is in what may be called a spiritual hurry, or rather who runs without having evidence of being spiritually sent, makes haste to no purpose.
~ T. C. UPHAM ~
There is great fret and worry in always running after work; it is not good intellectually or spiritually.
~ ANNIE KEARY ~
Whenever we are outwardly excited we should cease to act; but whenever we have a message from the spirit within, we should execute it with calmness. A fine day may excite one to act, but it is much better that we act from the calm spirit in any day, be the outward what it may.
