more Whitefield...

My mind being open and enlarged, I began to read the Holy Scriptures upon my knees, laying aside all other books, and praying over, if possible, every line and word. This proved meat indeed, and drink indeed, to my soul. I daily received fresh life, light, and power from above. I got more true knowledge from reading the book of God in one month, than I could ever have acquired from all the writings of men.

Lord, teach me in all things simply to comply with Thy will, without presuming to say, even in my heart, "What doest Thou?"

Take care of your life and the Lord will take care of your death.

Press forward. Do not stop, do not linger in your journey, but strive for the mark set before you.

~George Whitefield
