Be Mary

The Enemy is working very hard to both take people out of the ministry, and keep them from ever really answering the call. 

Please, do not let that be you. Please, be the person who hears that distant ringing in their spirit and answers with the same willingness as sweet Mary, who had nothing to offer the Lord except her faith and obedience. "Yes, Lord. I'm Yours. Do with me as You please."  That is all God needs.

There will be suffering. There will be very hard times. And, our Enemy is ruthless. He knows where we are tender, and strikes so that every attack does the most damage. But, he is defeated! He may take us down in a scrimmage, but the war isn't over. 

Be Mary, dear friends. Don't turn away from the call of God. And, do not compromise it, because God's way seems too hard. Keep climbing.

            "Well", he answered "the only way to develop hinds' feet is to go by the paths which the hinds use.”                                                                                                                                 from "Hinds' Feet On High Places" by Hannah Hunard
