We Can Only Choose

Pray for us unto the Lord thy God…
that the Lord thy God may show us the way wherein we may walk,
and the thing that we may do.
Jeremiah 42: 2, 3.

“We can’t choose happiness either for ourselves or for another;
we can’t tell where that will lie.
We can only choose whether we will indulge ourselves
in the present moment, or whether we will renounce that,
for the sake of obeying the Divine voice within us,
–for the sake of being true to all the motives that sanctify our lives.
I know this belief is hard;
it has slipped away from me again and again;
but I have felt that if I let it go forever,
I should have no light through the darkness of this life.”
GEORGE ELIOT.

That which I see not, teach Thou me.–Job 34:32

Jeremiah 42:2-3
And said unto Jeremiah the prophet, Let, we beseech thee,
our supplication be accepted before thee,
and pray for us unto the LORD thy God,
even for all this remnant;
(for we are left but a few of many, as thine eyes do behold us:)
That the LORD thy God may shew us the way
wherein we may walk,
and the thing that we may do.
