Daily Strength for Daily Needs – February 11

February 11I have finished the work which Thou gavest me to do.–JOHN xvii. 4.

She hath done what she could.–MARK xiv. 8.

He who God’s will has borne and done,
    And his own restless longings stilled,
  What else he does, or has foregone,
    His mission he has well fulfilled.
FROM THE GERMAN.

Cheered by the presence of God, I will do at each moment, without anxiety,
according to the strength which He shall give me, the work that His
Providence assigns me. I will leave the rest without concern; it is not my
affair. I ought to consider the duty to which I am called each day, as the
work that God has given me to do, and to apply myself to it in a manner
worthy of His glory, that is to say, with exactness and in peace. I must
neglect nothing; I must be violent about nothing.
FRANÇOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON.

It is thy duty oftentimes to do what thou wouldst not; thy duty, too, to
leave undone what thou wouldst do.
THOMAS À KEMPIS.
