What We Can Bear

By Mary Wilder Tileston

      Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
      PSALMS 119:54

      My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
      PHILIPPIANS 4:19

      HOW must the pilgrim's load be borne?
      With staggering limbs and look forlorn?
      His Guide chose all that load within;
      There's need of everything but sin.

      So, trusting Him whose love He knows,
      Singing along the road he goes;
      And nightly of his burden makes
      A pillow, till the morning breaks.

      THEY live contented with what they have, whether it be little or much, because they know that they receive as much as is profitable for them; little, if little be profitable, and much, if much be profitable for them, but the Lord only can, who has an eternal end in view in all things which He provides.

      I hope you will learn, what I am always hoping to learn, to rejoice in God continually, knowing that He is really ordering all your circumstances to the one end of making you a partaker of His own good-ness, and bringing you within His own sympathy.
