How blessed are those who observe his rules, and seek him with all their heart, — Ps 119:2 NET
Set out in the very morning of your lives with a frank and manly determination to look simply for what is right and true in all things…. This is the only way to know God’s will and do it. You may not find it at once, but you have set your face in the true direction to find it.
— Jeremy Taylor.
The important thing in life is to have a great aim, and to possess the aptitude and perseverance to attain it.
Lord God, forbid that I should lose the opportunities of making my life by waiting for sudden developments. Cause me to notice that the tree that bears fruit must first grow the blossom before it may be perfected by the sun: whether thou hast made me greater or less, may I be ashamed to live in untruth and wait in idleness. Amen.
