Caused by God

By Mary Wilder Tileston

      That the Lord thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which thou doest.

      DEUTERONOMY 14:29

      FIRM against every doubt of Thee
      For all my future way,--
      To walk in heaven's eternal light
      Throughout the changing day.
      Ah! such a day as Thou shalt own
      When suns have ceased to shine!
      A day of burdens borne by Thee,
      And work that all was Thine.


      LET us give ourselves to God without any reserve, and let us fear nothing. He will love us, and we shall love Him. His love, increasing every day, will take the place of everything else to us. He will fill our whole hearts; He will deprive us only of those things that make us unhappy. He will cause us to do in general, what we have been doing already, but which we have done in an unsatisfactory manner; whereas, hereafter, we shall do them well, because they will be done for His sake. Even the smallest actions of a simple and common life will be turned to consolation and recompense. We shall meet the approach of death in peace; it will be changed for us into the beginning of the immortal life.
