quote from my inbox

God is there in these moments of rest and can
give us in a single instant exactly what we
need. Then the rest of the day can take its
course, under the same effort and strain,
perhaps, but in peace. And when night comes,
and you look back over the day and see how
fragmentary everything has been, and how
much you planned that has gone undone, and
all the reasons you have to be embarrassed
and ashamed:
Just take everything exactly as it is, put it
in God's hands and leave it with Him. Then
you will be able to rest in Him - really
rest - and start the next day as a new life.

- Edith Stein
