A Quote on Faith

aplacetolayyourhead.blogspot.com





“So I live, knowing that I am in God’s hands, to be used to bring others to Him, if He wills by a long life full of work, or to die tomorrow if He so wills, having nothing worth mentioning. . . . We must do what we can and leave the rest to Him. . . . My trust is in God, so that it matters not what I do or where I go.” Edward Wilson*

What faith this man had. This was written just before he died.

    1. Thank you, Karen, for you warm comment. I found this quote in my Sunday school quarterly. I meant to use it this month, made a notation and then forgot where I put the book.

  3. So, whether I live or die, may God have the glory. Whatever works we leave behind, may they reflect God's grace and mercy and love. Those are the lasting treasures.
