CQOD: 04/05/06 -- de Beaufort: resting on God

Christian Quotation of the Day

April 5, 2006
    Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,
        whose sin is covered.
    Blessed is the man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity,
        and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
    -- Psalm 32:1-2 (ESV)

    When an occasion of practicing some virtue offered, he addressed himself to God, saying, “Lord, I cannot do this unless Thou enablest me;” and... then he received strength more than sufficient. When he had failed in his duty, he simply confessed his fault, saying to God, “I shall never do otherwise if Thou leavest me to myself; it is Thou who must hinder my falling, and mend what is amiss.” After this, he gave himself no further uneasiness about it.
    ... Joseph de Beaufort (17th century), The Character of Brother Lawrence

Quiet time reflection:
    Grant me the faith, Lord, to accept Your forgiveness.
