Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.—Psalm 119:54.
My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.—Philippians 4:19.
How must the pilgrim’s load be borne?
With staggering limbs and look forlorn?
His Guide chose all that load within;
There’s need of everything but sin.
So, trusting Him whose love He knows,
Singing along the road he goes,
And nightly of his burden makes
A pillow, till the morning breaks.
THEY live contented with what they have, whether it be little or much, because they know that they receive as much as is profitable for them; little, if little be profitable, and much, if much be profitable; and that they cannot tell what is profitable for them, but the Lord only can, who has an eternal end in view in all things which He provides. EMANUEL SWEDENBORG.
I hope you will learn, what I am always hoping to learn, to rejoice in God continually, knowing that He is really ordering all your circumstances to the one end of making you a partaker of His own goodness, and bringing you within His own sympathy. THOMAS ERSKINE.
