Strength For Daily Needs

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

[Ps 37:3 WEB]

Build a little fence of trust

Around to-day;

Fill the space with loving work,

And therein stay;

Look not through the sheltering bars

Upon to-morrow,

God will help thee bear what comes,

Of joy or sorrow.

Let us bow our souls and say, “Behold the handmaid of the Lord!” Let us lift up our hearts and ask, “Lord, what wouldst thou have me to do?” Then light from the opened heaven shall stream on our daily task, revealing the grains of gold, where yesterday all seemed dust; a hand shall sustain us and our daily burden, so that, smiling at yesterday’s fears, we shall say, “This is easy, this is light;” every “lion in the way,” as we come up to it, shall be seen chained, and leave open the gates of the Palace Beautiful; and to us, even to us, feeble and fluctuating as we are, ministries shall be assigned, and through our hands blessings shall be conveyed in which the spirits of just men made perfect might delight.
