God needs our hands

Happy Sunday to you. Are you feeling adrift or directionless?

These first words were written by St Teresa of Avila, in the 14th Century.

“God has no hands but our hands to do his work today;

God has no feet but our feet to lead others in his way;

God has no voice but our voice to tell others how he died;

and God has no help but our help to lead them to his side.”

Lord, today help me to be your hands, your feet, your voice, your helper.

You might feel that you do not or cannot make a difference.  I beg to differ. I am betting that you already have made a difference. I hope that today you get the chance to do something for someone. You are a treasure. Take care of yourself.
