As we are here at home preparing ourselves to come to Slovakia, God is at work in us and in the lives of the people whom we are coming to serve. As part of His work in me, I have been reading thoughtful words from inspirational writers, as well as from God’s word itself. I’d like to quote from John of the Cross, a man who lived a number of centuries ago. “If you are seeking after God, you may be sure of this: God is seeking you much more. He is the Lover, and you are His beloved. He has promised himself to you. He creates in you the desire to find Him and run after Him–to follow wherever He leads you, and to press peacefully against His heart wherever He is.” Each day provides new opportunities for “pressing peacefully against His heart” and this is my heart’s desire.
