Daily thoughts for daily needs
Daily Strength for Daily Needs by Mary W. TilestonEach day of the year has Bible quotes and from Christians. The quotes from believers are from before the 18th century so the English is a bit complex and dated BUT, I love how the quotes speak of a humans duty to trust themselves to the Lord even in suffering. Books these days do not address suffering that way anymore.
He stayeth His rough wind in the day of the east wind.--ISA. xxvii. 8.
A bruised reed shall He not break.--ISA. xlii. 3.
All my life I still have found, And I will forget it never; Every sorrow hath its bound, And no cross endures forever. All things else have but their day, Gods love only lasts for aye.
We never have more than we can bear. The present hour we are always able to endure. As our day, so is our strength. If the trials of many years were gathered into one, they would overwhelm us; therefore, in pity to our little strength, He sends first one, then another, then removes both, and lays on a third, heavier, perhaps, than either; but all is so wisely measured to our strength that the bruised reed is never broken. We do not enough look at our trials in this continuous and successive view. Each one is sent to teach us something, and altogether they have a lesson which is beyond the power of any to teach alone.
H. E. MANNING.

Prayer: Overcoming Fear and Trusting God for daily needs
Click Here. Have you ever felt inadequate to live the Christian life? If so, then you are exactly where God wants you to be, because you have discovered a vital truth: No one has the power in him- or herself to live a holy life. We are all in the same boat, but there is someone else with us who has the power we need—the Holy Spirit. When Jesus gave His disciples the task of preaching the gospel to the entire world, they had absolutely no ability to carry it out.

Read: Psalm When we were still children in school, most of us preferred field trips to sitting still and listening to classroom lectures. But the truth is that there are some things we learn best through experience. Although trials are not always the result of sin, they do play a big corrective role in our lives. The heavenly Father may use them to draw our attention to sins we have tolerated, overlooked, or accepted as normal. It could be a reminder to prioritize Him over our desires so that we might know and love Him more. Any hardship that drives us to God and His Word is good for us.
