Today’s thought Thou art Mine

Good Morning

Isaiah 43:1
But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob,
and He that formed thee, O Israel,
Fear not: for I have redeemed thee,
I have called thee by thy name;
thou art mine.

God beholds thee individually,
whoever thou art.
“He calls thee by thy name.”
He sees thee,
and understands thee.
He knows what is in thee,
all thy own peculiar feelings and thoughts,
thy dispositions and likings,
thy strength and thy weakness.
He views thee in thy day of rejoicing
and thy day of sorrow.
He sympathizes in thy hopes
and in thy temptations;
He interests himself in all
thy anxieties and thy remembrances,
in all the risings and fallings of thy spirit.
He compasses thee round,
and bears thee in His arms;
He takes thee up and sets thee down.
Thou dost not love thyself better
than He loves thee.
Thou canst not shrink from pain
more than He dislikes thy bearing it,
and if He puts it on thee,
it is as thou wilt put it on thyself,
if thou art wise,
for a greater good afterwards.
J. H. NEWMAN.

Lord, help me be wise . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
