Coleridge: Sunshine let it be, or frost

Tuesday, June 6, 2017
    Commemoration of Ini Kopuria, Founder of the Melanesian Brotherhood, 1945
    He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
    —Mark 4:40 (NIV)
Sunshine let it be, or frost,
    Storm or calm, as Thou shalt choose;
Though Thine every gift were lost,
    Thee Thyself we could not lose.
    ... Mary Elizabeth Coleridge (1861-1907), Poems, London: Elkin Mathews, 1908, p. 172 (see the book)
    See also Mark 4:40; Matt. 10:39; Mark 8:35; Luke 9:24; John 6:39; Acts 20;24; Rom. 8:18; Phil. 3:7-9
Quiet time reflection:
    Your faithfulness drives out my fear.
