I will instruct and teach you about how you should live. I will advise you as I look you in the eye. — Ps 32:8 NET
Yet I argue not against heaven’s hand or will, nor bate a jot of heart of hope;, but still bear up and steer right onward.

That falls through the clear ether silently.

My Father, if I may be living in bad habits, help me to get out of them. If I may be neglectful of good deeds, help me to get at them. May I reach for the highest purposes as I search for the realities, and may I not delay, but start to-day. Amen.
