Winsome Words 7/5/2016

Pray Him to give you what Scripture calls “an honest and good heart,” or “a perfect heart;” and, without waiting, begin at once to obey Him with the best heart you have. Any obedience is better than none. … You have to seek His face; obedience is the only way of seeking Him. All your duties are obediences. .. To do what He bids is to obey Him, and to obey Him is to approach Him. Every act of obedience is an approach–an approach to Him who is not far off, though He seems so, but close behind this visible screen of things which hides Him from us.   John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890)
