Wasting our lives and glorifying God

Wasting our lives and glorifying God
Notice God's unutterable waste of saints, according to the judgment of the world. God plants His saints in the most useless places. We say - God intends me to be here because I am so useful. Jesus never estimated His life along the line of the greatest use. God puts His saints where they will glorify Him, and we are no judges at all of where that is. ~Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, August 10

The Truest Thing

Every morning I write a creative writing prompt in my children's journals.  This is not their grammar or writing lesson.  I just want them to put words on the page.  Today Israel's writing made me cry.

The prompt:

Someday you will know my secret.

He wrote:
It will make you happy and mad.  It will be terrible and great.  It will be sad and joyful.  My secret is...

I love you with all my heart, my child.
