God Carries on the Work...

"Learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart." Matthew 11:29
We all fail in the life-lessons which our great Teacher sets for us. The hardest school-tasks are easily mastered--in comparison with the lessons of: patience, sweet temper, forgiveness, unselfishness, gentleness, humility, purity, contentment.

Even at best--we can learn these lessons but slowly. And though but little seems to come from our yearnings and strugglings after Christ-likeness--yet God honors the yearning and the striving. While we sit in the shadows of weariness, disheartened with our failures--He carries on the work within us, and with His own hands produces
the divine beauty in our souls.

-J.R. Miller
