Dear God, let me be a carrier of your word today. Let others see your way of life and become interested in adopting it. Let joy spread, and let me be one avenue through which it does so.

If I am to do this, it must be through works, not through exhortation or song. Lord, let me live my existence like a beacon. Let my deeds demonstrate what it means to live as you would have us live.

Lord, you do not require heroics from me. You only ask that I seek and do your will.

In all the circumstances I encounter today, all the people I interact with, let me ask continually how I might best serve you. Let me not be one who proclaims – but one who quietly acts. Let me be diligent in fulfilling your will. Let these quiet works be my testimony.

(Letter #1016)
