Thought for the Day: Willing to Obey

Will is the whole man active.  I cannot give up my will; I must exercise it.  I must will to obey.  When God gives a command or a vision of truth, it is never a question of what He will do, but what we will do.  To be successful in God's work is to fall in line with His will and to do it His way.  All that is pleasing to Him is a success.

-- Dr. Henrietta Mears, founder of Gospel Light Publications

A thought came to mind upon reflecting on the above quote:  "Thy will be done." - Will I choose to make His will be done in my life by being obedient to His Word?

I read her (auto-?)biography years ago and was very inspired by all this woman accomplished for the kingdom of God!

I had never heard of her until I fell over her biography at a book sale. BTW, thanks for your letter - I'm planning to have some pumpkin spice tea at teatime!
