He that doeth the will of God abideth forever.—1 John 2:17.
I am Thine, save me.—Psalm 119:94.
Take, O Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my will, all that I have and possess. Thou hast given it to me; to Thee, O Lord, I restore it; all is Thine, dispose of it according to Thy will. Give me Thy love and Thy grace, for this is enough for me.
St. Ignatius Loyola.
Are we willing to give ourselves entirely to God; to let Him do with us whatever He pleases; to follow anywhere at His bidding; to renounce anything at His call; asking only, in return, that He will give us Himself, with all His infinite love, to be ours from this time forever? If we are thus willing, let us kneel down this moment and tell Him so. Alone with God, let us give Him ourselves, all we have and are and shall be, to be unreservedly His.
William R. Huntington.
There is no stay so strong as an unreserved abandonment of self into God’s hand.
H. L. Sidney Lear.
