I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself. – In his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old. – As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: so the LORD alone did lead him.
Even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you. – This God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee. – Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
Hitherto hath the LORD helped us.

December 31 evening
There remaineth yet very much land to be possessed.
Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Be ye therefore perfect. – Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment.
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit.
There remaineth … a rest for the people of God. – Thine eyes shall see the King in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.
