The voice of Christ: Write my words in your heart and meditate on them earnestly, for in time of temptation they will be very necessary. ~ Thomas. A Kempis

|His way above all. Show me Your ways, O Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my saviour and my hope is in You all day long.||Psalm 25:4-5|

|Trust in His all-encompassing love and provision. …He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. For You are with me…||Psalm 23:3-4|
|The Lord your rock and your refuge. How great is Your goodness, which You have stored up for those who fear You, which You bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in You. In the shelter of Your presence You hide them…||Psalm 31:19-20|

From the Hymn book
Lord of creation, to You be all praise!
Most mighty Your working, most wondrous Your ways
Your glory and might are beyond us to tell,
And yet in the heart of the humble You dwell.
Lord of all being, I give You my all;
If I ever disown You, I stumble and fall;
But, led in Your service Your word to obey,
I’ll walk in Your freedom to the end of the day.
