Today’s thought – . . . But as Thou Wilt

Good Morning

Matthew 26:36-39 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Choose but the will of God,
and thou willest His wisdom,
with His all-perfect choice;
thou enterest inot 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, but what Thou”;
this, in suffering;
“not what I, but what Thou”.
This shall hallow our hopes;
this shall hush our fears;
this shall ward off disquiet;
this shall preserve our peace;
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 . . .,
but what Thou, in Thy mercy,
and holiness and wisdom and love.
E.B. Pusey

Committing . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
