So it is with Jesus

So it is with Jesus

Does it weary the traveler to rest in the house or on the bed where he seeks repose from his fatigue?

Or is it a labor to a little child to rest in its mother’s arms?

Is it not the house that keeps the traveler within its shelter?

Do not the arms of the mother sustain and keep the little one?

And so it is with Jesus.

The soul has but to yield itself to Him, to be still and rest in the confidence that His Love has undertaken, and that His Faithfulness will Perform, the Work of Keeping it Safe in the shelter of His Bosom
