“Thou art my glory and the exultation of my heart: thou art my hope and refuge in the day of my trouble.”

—Thomas à Kempis


As your day draws to a close, spend a few moments in silence and stillness, finding your refuge in God.


Sometimes in our spiritual life, we will find we have come to a point where our progress seems to be stopped cold. Sometimes these dry periods are just that, a boring stretch of ground that we must get over by walking step by step. But sometimes we find before us a chasm, and at that time no amount of plodding at our usual humble pace will get us across. 

At those times, devotion to a divine ideal – whether as a personal incarnation of God, or simply complete faith in the Self within us – can enable us to make a leap. 

We will close our eyes and say, “I do not have the capacity to go farther without help. Now it is up to You.” We’ll go forward, secure in the faith that the Self, the Lord within, will never let us fall but will carry us safely to the other side. (WLB)


“The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.”

—Nahum 1:7 (OT)
