Strength Today

speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music in your hearts to the Lord,

[Eph 5:19]

But set Christ apart as Lord in your hearts and always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks about the hope you possess.

[1 Pet 3:15]

There are in this loud stunning tide

Of human care and crime,

With whom the melodies abide

Of th’ everlasting chime;

Who carry music in their heart

Through dusky lane and wrangling mart,

Plying their daily task with busier feet,

Because their secret souls a holy strain repeat.

[J. KEBLE]

Strive to carry thyself with a total resignation to the Divine Will, that God may do with thee and all thine according to His heavenly pleasure, relying on Him as on a kind and loving Father. Never recall that intention, and though thou be taken up about the affairs of the condition wherein God hath placed thee, yet thou wilt still be in prayer, in the presence of God, and in perpetual acts of resignation. “A just man leaves not off to pray unless he leaves off to be just.” He always prays who always does well. The good desire is prayer, and if the desire be continued so also is the prayer.

[M. DE MOLINOS]
