All Good is in Me

Below is one of my favorite writings:

All good is in Me by St. Tikhon of Zadonsk

Do you desire good for yourself? All good is in Me.
Do you desire blessings? All blessings are in Me.
Do you desire beauty? What is lovelier that I?
Do you desire noble birth? What birth is more noble than that of the Son of God and the Virgin?
Do you desire rank? Who is of higher rank than the King of heaven?
Do you desire glory? Who is more glorious than I?
Riches? All riches are in Me.
Wisdom? I am the Wisdom of God.
Friendship? Who is a greater friend than I - I who laid down my life for all?
Help? Who can help but I?
Happiness? Who can be happy without Me?
Do you seek consolation in distress? Who will console you but I?
Do you seek peace? I am the peace of the soul.
Do you seek life? In Me is the fount of life.
Do you seek light? I am the light of the world.
