A Quote from Oswald

This is an excerpt from today's devotional in My Utmost for His Highest, by Oswald Chambers. This is truly one of my favorite devotionals. Anyway, this quote struck a chord with me for some reason and wanted to share it.


The author or speaker from whom you learn the most is not the one who teaches you something you didn’t know before, but the one who helps you take a truth with which you have quietly struggled, give it expression, and speak it clearly and boldly.

This gives me chills. Sometimes I think about a person I was years ago, fears I have overcome, kindnesses I have learned, humility, patience. . . I don't see the same person. I am proud of the voice I use when I learn and waiting and listening for more to learn. This is what is so exciting to me! I am excited about being old because for sure, it must take us that much closer to being wiser. . . and we can share our voices with the young people. Even if they can't hear it yet!

Holly's right. I wish I could take credit for that, but I can't. I'm not up THAT early! Blogger's in it's own time zone.
