Longer Version:

The will of God is always a bigger thing than we bargain for, but we must believe that whatever it involves, it is good, acceptable and perfect.






Longer Version:

Oh, the fullness, pleasure, sheer excitement of knowing God on Earth!  I care not if I never raise my voice again for Him, if only I may love Him, please Him.  Mayhap in mercy He shall give me a host of children that I may lead them through the vast star fields to explore His delicacies whose finger ends set them to burning.  But if not, if only I may see Him, touch His garments, smile into His eyes -- ah then, not stars nor children shall matter, only Himself.

























Longer Version:

Wherever you are, be all there! Live to the hilt every situation you believe to be the will of God.
