CQOD: 09/14/07 -- Baillie: Teach me, O God

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 14, 2007
Feast of the Holy Cross
    Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
    -- Psalm 25:4,5 (NIV)

    Teach me. O God, to use all the circumstances of my life to-day that they may bring forth in me the fruits of holiness rather than the fruits of sin. Let me use disappointment as material for patience: Let me use success as material for thankfulness: Let me use suspense as material for perseverance: Let me use danger as material for courage: Let me use reproach as material for longsuffering: Let me use praise as material for humility: Let me use pleasures as material for temperance: Let me use pains as material for endurance.
    ... John Baillie (1886-1960), A Diary of Private Prayer [1949]

Quiet time reflection:
    May the day come soon, Lord, when my conversion to Your way is complete.
