God, send me anywhere, only go with me. Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. And sever any tie in my heart except the tie that binds my heart to Yours.
I will place no value on anything I have or may possess except in relation to the kingdom of Christ.
If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don’t want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.
Nothing earthly will make me give up my work in despair.
I do not know how the great loving Father will bring out light at last, but he knows, and he will do it.
Fear God and work hard.
