Ready for His bidding?

It is easier to make great sacrifices when God does not ask them, but to give up our own in each detail of life is something far harder.
And this is what He does ask. To hold ourselves ever in readiness for His bidding -- to count no token of it to slight -- such is His call to each. Thus only shall we be ready for further service if He sees fit to lead us on to it.
-H. Bowman

"WAIT ON THE LORD.
Keep His way,
AND HE SHALL EXALT YOU."

-Psalms 37:34

That's not the road you're taking to California is it :) The traffics not bad though.

I hope the road smooths out for your travels - figuratively and literally. May you be safe and well.

Prayers,
Richard

Wow. That is so convicting for me, and so true.
And the last statement really brings the truth into the light...!

Thank you for posting this, Bethany!!!
