Another gem from Mother Stuart

 This is a quote I have often returned to and so share it with you today:

"Yes, do be a saint; why not? What else is worth living for, caring about; and every little thing in the day may help you on towards it, if you will look at it on the right side as coming to you form our dearest God, who is so in with us in our daily troubles and duties, for whom nothing is too great or too small, who is so understanding and loving to all our moods and aches and longings, and asks only one thing, that we should take our worries to Him to be comforted, and our joys to be blessed, and our tangles to be pulled out, and our choking gulps of trouble to be quieted down; if you have Him in the details of your life with you, all is well, and you can manage love Him and trust Him all you can, and let nothing take you away for the keep of that strong castle, God the refuge of His people." 

From "The Inward Life: Extracts from the Letters of Mother Stuart" p.23
