Thoughts of a woman who knew God because she did what Jesus said.
God has created us for great things: to love and offer love, to experience tenderness toward others, as he did, and to know how to offer Jesus to others. People are not hungry for us; they are hungry for God.
God will not ask how many books we have read; how many miracles we have worked; but he will ask if we have done our best, for the love of Him.
The Joy of the Lord
We are at His disposal. If he wants you to be sick in bed, if he wants you to proclaim his work in the street, if he wants you to clean the toilets all day, that’s all right, everything is all right. We must say, “I belong to you. You can do whatever you like.” And this is our strength, and this is the joy of the Lord.
