Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.--PS. xxvii. 14.

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength.--ISA. xl. 29.


Leaning on Him, make with reverent meekness
His own thy will,
And with strength from Him shall thy utter weakness
Life's task fulfil.
J. G. WHITTIER.

Should we feel at times disheartened and discouraged, a confiding thought, a simple movement of heart towards God will renew our powers. Whatever He may demand of us, He will give us at the moment the strength and the courage that we need.
FRANCOIS DE LA MOTHE FENELON.

We require a certain firmness in all circumstances of life, even the happiest, and perhaps contradictions come in order to prove and exercise this; and, if we can only determine so to use them, the very effort brings back tranquillity to the soul, which always enjoys having exercised its strength in conformity to duty.
WM. VON HUMBOLDT.
