Daily Strength for Daily Needs - September 21

September 21

How excellent is Thy loving-kindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Thy wings.--PS. xxxvi. 7.

The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.--DEUT. xxxiii. 27.


Within Thy circling arms we lie,
O God! in Thy infinity:
Our souls in quiet shall abide,
Beset with love on every side.
ANON.

"The Everlasting Arms." I think of that whenever rest is sweet. How the whole earth and the strength of it, that is almightiness, is beneath every tired creature to give it rest; _holding_ us, always! No thought of God is closer than that. No human tenderness of patience is greater than that which gathers in its arms a little child, and holds it, heedless of weariness. And He fills the great earth, and all upon it, with this unseen force of His love, that never forgets or exhausts itself, so that everywhere we may lie down in His bosom, and be comforted.
A. D. T. WHITNEY.
