How to Deal with Life’s Challenges

This is a quote from my daily devotional that seemed appropriate to the theme of the month, and also the Easter season.

“Choose but the will of God, and thou willest with His wisdom, thou choosest with Hiss all-perfect choice;  thou enterest into His counsels;  thou lovest with His love.  Be this our watch-word, brethren,  for the Church,  for those we love, for our own souls.  Be this our rule in action, ‘not what I will, but what Thou’;  this in suffering;  ‘not what I, but what Thou.’  This shall hallow our hopes;  this shall hush our fears;  this shall calm anxieties;  this (if so it must be) shall soothe our heart-aches;  this shall give repose to our weariness;  this, the deeper our trouble, shall be the deeper foretaste of everlasting peace and rest.  ‘Lord, not what I will, but what Thou’;  not what I, in my misery, and ignorance, and blindness, and sin, but what Thou, in Thy mercy, and holiness, and wisdom, and love.”

E.B. Pusey
