Principles and Practices - August 24

Only In God

When our spirits shall be so united with that infinite love that we have but one and the self-same desire, love, and will with God, our hearts will find their true centre and repose and their perfect contentment. For the perfection of our soul consists in this, that being created by God capable of so great a good, it can never be content or satisfied but in the enjoyment of its God, its Lord, supreme good.
