Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.

~ Ps 105:3

The joy of the Lord is your strength.

~ Neh 8:10

Be Thou my Sun, my selfishness destroy,  
Thy atmosphere of Love be all my joy;  
Thy Presence be my sunshine ever bright,  
My soul the little mote that lives but in Thy light.  
~ GERHARD TERSTEEGEN

I do not know when I have had happier times in my soul, than when I have been sitting at work, with nothing before me but a candle and a white cloth, and hearing no sound but that of my own breath, with God in my soul and heaven in my eye… I rejoice in being exactly what I am,—a creature capable of loving God, and who, as long as God lives, must be happy. I get up and look for a while out of the window, and gaze at the moon and stars, the work of an Almighty hand. I think of the grandeur of the universe, and then sit down, and think myself one of the happiest beings in it.

~ A POOR METHODIST WOMAN, 18TH CENTURY
