Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God.

~  Heb 10:9

Teach me to do Thy will, for Thou art my God.

~ Ps 143:10

Lo! I come with joy to do  
The Father’s blessed will;  
Him in outward works pursue,  
And serve His pleasure still.  
Faithful to my Lord’s commands,  
I still would choose the better part;  
Serve with careful Martha’s hands,  
And loving Mary’s heart.  

A soul cannot be regarded as truly subdued and consecrated in its will, and as having passed into union with the Divine will, until it has a disposition to do promptly and faithfully all that God requires, as well as to endure patiently and thankfully all that He imposes.  

When we have learned to offer up every duty connected with our situation in life as a sacrifice to God, a settled employment becomes just a settled habit of prayer.  

“Do the duty which lies nearest thee,” which thou knowest to be a duty. Thy second duty will already have become clearer.
