Shelter in God: A Meditation for COVID-19 Isolation | April 9

From Samuel Shaw’s A Welcome to the Plague:

“I beseech you, Christian, be not content to say you have chosen God for your chief good, but pursue after him as such, without grudging, and without ceasing, longing to be as much one with him, in a participation of divine perfections, as our created natures are capable of. Maintain a holy and secret striving of soul towards this blessed object continually, as a thing moves towards its center, as a soul ought to endeavor to accomplish its own perfection; stand not gazing upon a heaven to come, but labor to draw down all that peace, joy, love, purity, which heaven is, into your own souls, by growing up into the life of God daily.”
