Listen, Look & Know His Love
Listen to Him, my children. He speaks to you, He teaches you in a thousand ways every day. Through the love of those who love you and live to help you, He touches you, and He speaks to you. In the sunrise and the sunset, and in moonlight, through the loveliness of the things that He has made, through the thousand joys that He plans for every one of you, through the sorrows that come, too, in all these things, through all these things, He Who loved you unto death is speaking to you. Listen; do not be deaf and blind to Him, and as you keep quiet and listen, you will know deep down in your heart that you are loved. As the air is round about you, so is His love round about you now. It is enough. Trust that love to guide your lives. It will never, never fail.
-- Amy Carmichael, from a letter to her "children," excerpted from Amy Carmichael of Dohnavur, Frank L. Houghton
