A quote, a question and a video

Am I afraid of the will of God? The dear saint whom I have already mentioned as having such an influence upon the course of my life, many times asked me the question: "Do you like the will of God?" It is a tremendous question. She did not ask, "Do you do the will of God?" she always asked, "do you like the will of God?" That question cuts deeper that anything else. I remember once she was having a controversy with the Lord over a certain matter. She knew what the Lord wanted, and in her heart she wanted it too. But it was difficult, and I heard her pray like this: "Lord, I confess I don't like it, but please do not give in to me. Just wait, Lord-and I will give in to thee." She did not want he Lord to yield to her and to reduce his demands upon her. She wanted nothing but to please him.

"How often do you take the time to think deeply about the cross, Christ's love, and all his death bought for you? Once a day? Once a week? Once a year?
