More of the same...

Jeremiah 31:25
“For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish."

"A thirsty tongue is liable to be a murmuring one. When Israel was not satisfied, she tested God with her lips. So with me, and how often I have known this, when I have not been wholly satiated with the water of life in the morning, the tongue is apt to move loosely in criticism of God's children, His ways of leading, his apparent slowness to provide."
- The Journals of Jim Elliot

"Make me Thy fuel"
From subtle love of softening things,
From easy choices, weakenings,
Not thus are spirits fortified,
Not this way went the Crucified,
From all that dims Thy Calvary,
O Lamb of God, deliver me.
- Amy Carmichael
