True Joy In Life
(an edited excerpt) This is the true joy in life… being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one… being a [servant of God, most high] instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy… my life belongs to the whole community [of believers] and as long as i live it is my PRIVILEGE to do for it whatever i can. i want to be thoroughly used up when i die. For the [more i give] the more i live. I rejoice in life [for Jesus’] sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It’s a sort of splendid torch which I’ve got to hold up for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations. —sis 11:06 p.m.
