“They Also Serve Who Only Stand and Wait”
Psalm 130:5–6; Matthew 11:29–30
God does not need
Either man’s work or his own gifts. Who best
Bear his mild yoke, they serve him best. His state
Is kingly: thousands at his bidding speed,
And post o’er land and ocean without rest;
They also serve who only stand and wait.

Live Crucified with Christ, Inwardly and Outwardly
Romans 6:6; Galatians 2:19–20
Inwardly and outwardly live always crucified with Christ, and you will attain unto peace and contentment of spirit, and in your patience you shall possess your soul.
