“I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel — and afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in Heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever!” Psalm 73:23-26 [See also Psalm 16:8-11.]
Babes in religion long not only for Christ — but for sensible communion with Him; and very often are they indulged with it, that they may be weaned from the world. But those of fuller age, who have their senses more exercised, are thankful that they can trust Him, when they do not see Him — and can follow Him, when they feel no comfort, relying more on the word and covenant of God — than on those sensations which, though ever precious and desirable, are often withdrawn.
Lord, give me grace to trust You in the dark — to rest on Your promise, believing that You are always present, though unseen. I would not live on frames and feelings — but on Jesus; nor imagine that my God changes, because I do. I am always with You as Your child, needing Your watchful care; and You are always with me as my Father, sympathizing with and caring for me.
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
