God, my hope is in you alone. All that has been good in my life has come from your hand. I will forever praise you!
Oh, that I could walk in your ways constantly, never looking back, never flinching…not even for an instance. Only in you, my God, is there perfect peace, confidence, and inner rest.
In foreign lands serving you, having gladly given up all else, everything was clearer then and decisions were easier. You were my only source. I understood so much more clearly my dependency upon you.
Too often, I now lose sight of the main thing. The picture becomes blurred and, like Martha in the Bible, I am so easily filled with concern and worry over so many things. My joy is too easily over shadowed by my inability to please or to be pleased by mankind.
Oh God, how is it that I forget that it is you, and you alone, that I really want to please? My ultimate pleasure is found in you, and It is in you that my joy is complete.
