I can do all things through [Christ] who strengthens me. - Philippians 4:13 (NRSV)
I took my mischievous Sheltie puppy, Misty, to obedience school to learn good manners. The dog trainer produced an astonishing change. The trainer’s calm, kind demeanor impressed me, although I did not immediately understand why.
Sometime later while I was in the hospital for shoulder surgery, I called the trainer...
God can use my ordinary actions of love to bring compassion to the world.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
