God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another.
I have my mission. I may not know what it is in this life.
But I shall be told in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.
He has not created me for nothing. I shall do good. I shall do His work.
Therefore I will trust Him. Whatever I do, wherever I am, I cannot be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him. If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain. He knows what He is about. Saint John Henry Newman (1801-1890) The above would really have been better served in last week’s bulletin.
However as the message is timeless and so good, I give it to you now.
