Acceptance of God's Dispensations

By Mary Wilder Tileston

      Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.
         --COLOSSIANS 1:11

      REJOICE in Christ always!
      When earth looks heavenly bright,
      When joy makes glad the livelong day,
      And peace shuts in the night.
      Rejoice, when care and woe
      The fainting soul oppress,
      When tears at wakeful midnight flow,
      And morn brings heaviness.
         --JOHN MOULTRIE

      A GREAT point is gained when we have learned not to struggle against the circumstances God has appointed for us.
         --H. L. SIDNEY LEAR

      All mental discomfort comes from our minds being in divergence from God's; when the two are agreed no warfare occurs, for they work together, and man's mind accepts God's rule, but reason tells us that disagreement must bring conflicts. He will have His way, and would have us accept all events with the knowledge that He is love, whatever and however contradictory those events may be to our comprehension of Him.

      Something is wrong, when the Christian cannot rejoice in all the dear dispensations of his Father's providence.
         --ISABELLA CAMPBELL, 1825
