The thing that confuses us so much is that we are constantly thinking about ourselves: What am I going to do for the world? What am I going to do for my neighbor? You've got the wrong question.
The question is: What is God going to do through you? That's the question. How much are you going to let Him do? When you begin to ask the right questions you will get the right answers. You are nothing; and until you come to that realization, you will stumble and crawl through all of life. There is absolute freedom in the thought that you are nothing. Only then are you free to be used by God for His ends, the ends for which you have been created.
I love this! I always stress out about not doing enough. I spend many hours worrying about what it is I'm "supposed" to be doing. This does give me absolute freedom - freedom from stressing about this. Now I just tell God everyday to do whatever He wants to through me and just let Him take it from there! It is wonderful.
Expect to hear more from me about this book. It is amazing!
