Walk it out.

"Christ has no body on earth but yours,

no hands but yours,

no feet but yours.

Yours are the eyes through which

Christ's compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now. "

- Saint Teresa of Avila

I had to re-read this a few times because it moved something in me. Christ has no body on this earth but As I read this and allowed it to begin to sink I was struck with the truth of this statement. God placed me on this earth with the simple purpose of bringing Him glory. How am I bringing Him glory with this body that He has given me? With this body that He formed specifically for me? Am I using my eyes, hands and feet for His purposes? I want to be a Daughter of Obedience. I want to be walking along the path that He has set out for me. We are called to do that. We need to walk it out.

Will you join me?
