May 25-O my Father if it be possible let this cup pass from me

  O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt.—MATT. xxvi. 39.     O Lord my God, do Thou Thy holy will,—    I will lie still.  I will not stir, lest I forsake Thine arm,    And break the charm  Which lulls me, clinging to my Father's breast,    In perfect rest. J. KEBLE. Resignation to the will of God is the whole of piety; it includes in it all that is good; and is a source of the most settled quiet and composure of mind. Our resignation to the will of God may be said to be perfect, when our will is lost and resolved up into His; when we rest in His will as our end, as being itself mo....

  Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.—HEB. xii. I1.         I cannot say,  Beneath the pressure of life's cares to-day,      I joy in these;      But I can say  That I had rather walk this rugged way,      If Him it please. S. G. BROWNING.   The particular annoyance which befell you this morning; the vexatious words which met your ear and "grieved" your spirit; the disappo....

MAY 23-Be content with such things as ye have

  Be content with such things as ye have.—HEB. xiii. 5.   I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therein to be content.—PHIL. iv. 11 ( R. V.).     No longer forward nor behind    I look in hope or fear;  But, grateful, take the good I find,    The best of now and here. J. G. WHITTIER.   If we wished to gain contentment, we might try such rules as these:— 1. Allow thyself to complain of nothing, not even of the weather. 2. Never picture thyself to thyself under any circumstances in which thou art not. 3. Never compare thine own lot with that of another. 4. Never allow thyself to dwell on the wish that this or that had been, or were, otherwise than....

  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.—PS. xci. I.     They who on the Lord rely,  Safely dwell though danger's nigh;  Lo! His sheltering wings are spread  O'er each faithful servant's head.  When they wake, or when they sleep,  Angel guards their vigils keep;  Death and danger may be near,  Faith and love have nought to fear. HARRIET AUBER.   "There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling," is a promise to the fullest extent verified in the case of all "who dwell in the secret place of the Most High." To them sorrows are not "evils," sicknesses are no....

May 21-The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him

  The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day long.—DEUT. xxxiii. 12.     Whate'er events betide,    Thy will they all perform;  Safe in Thy breast my head I hide,    Nor fear the coming storm. H. F. LYTE.   I have seemed to see a need of everything God gives me, and want nothing that He denies me. There is no dispensation, though afflictive, but either in it, or after it, I find that I could not be without it. Whether it be taken from or not given me, sooner or later God quiets me in Himself without it. I cast all my concerns on the Lord, and live securely on the care and wisdom of my heavenly Father.....

May 20-To be spiritually minded is life and peace

    To be spiritually minded is life and peace.—ROM. viii. 6.     Stilled now be every anxious care;  See God's great goodness everywhere;  Leave all to Him in perfect rest:  He will do all things for the best. FROM THE GERMAN.   We should all endeavor and labor for a calmer spirit, that we may the better serve God in praying to Him and praising Him; and serve one another in love, that we may be fitted to do and receive good; that we may make our passage to heaven more easy and cheerful, without drooping and hanging the wing. So much as we are quiet and cheerful upon good ground, so much we live, and are, as it were, in heaven. R. SIBBES.   Possess yoursel....
