Quote of the week...

"It behooves you, you who would seek a deeper walk with your Lord, to soon lay
aside clearly defined intelligibles. In short, lay aside everything and cast
yourself into the bosom of a loving God. Eventually this Lord of yours will
restore to you all you have dropped, while at the some time increasing you in
strength and power. (I speak of a power to love Him more ardently) In turn
this love will maintain you in all circumstances that may come into your life.
Be sure that the love which you pour out toward Him (which He Himself will
give you) is worth more than all the actions which you can ever perform.
There is little you can do for God; there is so very little in this lifetime
you will ever really come to understand of Him, I care not how wise you are,
nor how much you study. But oh! You can love Him a great deal."

Michael Molinos The Spiritual Guide.

Love is really all we can do. When we do Something for Jesus, it usually looks more like Something for us. Great words, thanks for sharing...

When I found out I was pregnant, my own mother questioned my abilities to take care of a child (I was 40 for pete's sake)...without a blink of an eye this is what I said "As long as I love this child with all my heart and soul, we'll do fine". I have always remembered that....yet I thank you for reminding me that it remains that simple as I walk my walk of faith with the Lord...all he really wants is us to love Him. You are awesome in your ability to cut through the chafe to get to the wheat.
