Hannah Whitall Smith

Wherever there has been a faithful following of the Lord in a consecrated soul, several things have sooner or later followed.

  • Meekness and quietness; 
  • a submissive acceptance of the will of God;
  • pliability in the hands of God;
  • sweetness under provocation, calmness in the midst of turmoil and bustle;
  • a yielding to the wishes of others and an insensibility to slights and affronts;
  • absence of worry or anxiety;
  • deliverance from care and fear.

God's glory and the welfare of His creatures become the absorbing delight of the soul.
(From The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life by Hannah Whitall Smith, found in, Flowers Along the Path by Esther Carls Dodgen, p. 127)
