“In quletnc** »nd la ctnll

We all make a real effort to re
lax when we lie down at night 'or
ilrep And most of u* try to relax
when we }it down. But how many
of us seek relaxation in the midst
of activity? That is really the time
to relax, for we do our best work,
even as we do our best resting,
when we relax. /
Whenever you find yourself
plung:ng into some task with every
nerve and every muscle tense and
taut., try to remember to pause and
relax If you are rushing down the
street, try to slow down. Whatever
you may be doing—mowing grass,
weeding the garden, washing dish*
at. playing baseball or golf, hold
ing a business conference you’ll
perform It much easier and much
more efficiently If you leem end
prsctice the art of relaxation.

A tight, tense, worry-filled mind
is not an efficent mind. There real
ly is plenty of time for everything.
There is nohing to be excited or
worked up about. Just remember
that God is in charge of His uni
verse and everything in it The
easiest way to operate or to cope
with any little problem or situation
in life is to lift your vision inward
and upward toward God, and to
keep it there in complete trust
and in unwavering faith.
The secret of perfect poise lies in
the possession of a mind and heart
filled with faith In God’s presence
and power. When we trust God
completely, we are never out of
control emotionally. A relaxed,
peaceful mind is a happy mind.
Let us keep faith In prayer. Let us
say to our mind, our nerves, our
body "Peace, be still."
“God la my salvation; I win
trust, and will net be afraid.”

ed sinner before God. And it is on
ly when we come to see ourselves
as we are In to* sight of a holy
God that there is hope of salvation.
The self-righteous do not see
their need of a Savior. What would
He save them from; What have they
done that is so wrong? This Is tha
way their reasoning goes.
It is only when we began to ap
preciate the holiness and righteous
ness of God that It dawns upon us
that our condition is hopeless with
out a Savior.
Strange, Is It not. so many peopla
have pictures of our Lord crown
ed with thorns or hanging on a
croas, yat do not really know Him

But when we have been convict
