Good Morning

I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith
2 Timothy 4:7

The best any of us can do in this world is but a fragment.
“The old prophet thought his work had failed because Baalism was not yet entirely destroyed. Then we was told of three other men, who would come after him–tow kins and then another prophet, who each in turn would do his part, when at last the destruction of the great alien ‘idolatry’ would be complete. Elijah’s faithfulness had not failed, but his achievement was only a fragment of the whole work.
We are not responsible for finishing everything we begin. It may be our part only to begin it; the carrying on and finishing of it may be the work of others. They may be those we know or do not know and perhaps others not yet born. We all enter into the work of those who have gone before us, and others who come after us shall in turn enter into our work. Our duty simply is to do well and faithfully our own little part. Why fret over what we cannot do when that which we can do will occupy all our time. What we cannot do is not our responsibility. It belongs to some other worker, waiting even now, perhaps, in some obscure place, who at the right moment will come forth with new zeal and dedicated skill, anointed for his task.”   ~~ J.R. Miller

Work in your place for God. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
