Everyone whom I allow to touch me in my weakness and help me to be faithful to my journey to God’s home will come to realize that he or she has a gift to offer that may have remained hidden for a very long time. To receive help, support, guidance, affection, and care may well be a greater call than that of giving all these things because in receiving I reveal the gift to the givers and a new life together can begin.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. - Isaiah 55: 8 (NIV)
