Let Me Keep In Mind

By November 28, 2016 No Comments


Here I stand, weak and mortal, amid the immensities of nature. But blessed be Thou, O Lord God, that Thou hast made me in Thine own likeness and hast breathed into me the breath of Thine own life.

Let me keep in mind that my mortal body is but the servant of my immortal soul:

Let me keep in mind how uncertain is my hold upon my bodily life:

Let me remember that here I have no continuing city, but only a place of sojourn and a time of testing and of training:

Let me use this world as not abusing it:
Let me be in this world but not of it:
Let me be as having nothing yet possessing all things:
Let me understand the vanity of the temporal and the glory of the eternal:
Let my world be centered not in myself but in Thee.

Amen
