“The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.”
– Ps 145:18


“He comes to all his children in their affliction.  In time of danger He is their refuge.  In sorrow, He offers them joy and consolation.  Shall we turn from the Redeemer, the fountain of living water, to hew out for ourselves broken cisterns, which can hold no water?  When danger approaches, shall we seek for help from those as weak as ourselves, or shall we flee to Him who is might to save?  His arms are open wide, and He utters the gracious invitaiton, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. . . .

He knows just what we need, just what we can bear, and He will give us grace to endure every trial and test that He brings upon us.  My constant prayer is for a greater nearness to God.”
– YI, December 14, 1893
