for the Day
Until we become a conscious, vital factor in the Divine Life, we can have no real sense of security.
Lines to Memorize
Alas, I follow Thee but with frail and faltering feet.
Wilt Thou not show me mercy, Thou Friend of the lowly,
And halt Thy march a little moment?
Have pity on this poor pilgrim
And let her once worship Thy holy Feet.
We cannot define or calculate the loftier things of life. They are too big, too profound to describe. We must feel them with spontaneous soul-yearning and humble spirit. These feelings alone can destroy our pride, our doubt and despair. If our inner life is filled with humility and richness of spiritual understanding, nothing else matters. When we possess these, if good or ill fortune comes to us, we know how to meet it. We have found the Power which sustains us in all circumstances.
Supreme Being, open my heart to Your holy influence,
That it may be free from all doubt and darkness of ignorance.
Enlarge my vision and increase my yearning for the Divine;
Unite my life with Your Divine life
And keep me ever in Your loving protection.
