Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou guest.

~ Gen 28:15

Be quiet, soul:

Why shouldst thou care and sadness borrow,

Why sit in nameless fear and sorrow,

The livelong day?

God will mark out thy path to-morrow

In His best way.

~ ANON

I had hoped, Madame, to find you here, and was rejoicing in that hope; but God has sent you elsewhere. The best place is wherever He puts us, and any other would be undesirable, all the worse because it would please our fancy, and would be of our own choice. Do not think about distant events. This uneasiness about the future is unwholesome for you. We must leave to God all that depends on Him, and think only of being faithful in all that depends upon ourselves. When God takes away that which He has given you, He knows well how to replace it, either through other means or by Himself.

~ FRANÇOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON
