Chambers Quote

“Disaster occurs in your life when you lack the mental composure that comes from establishing yourself on the eternal truth that God is holy love.”229

-Oswald Chambers

Mental composure. I have been thinking a great deal about the fact that each of us bears a sober responsibility of personal stewardship before God. The word “stewardship” is frequently used in relation to financial resources but God has given each of his children other resources as well. I believe we are also responsible for our physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health. If any one of these areas are neglected, we are less than all we should be for the glory of God.

It is impossible to walk through this sinful, war torn world without accumulating some battle scars. We are injured. We are fed lies about our worth. Our hearts and minds are wounded and broken but God loves us and wants us to be free.

From one broken child of God to another, I have this to say to you, my friend- It is ok, if you can’t figure it out on your own. So few can. It is not ok to stay in a place of disfunction because you are afraid of healing. The glory of Eternal God rests in you. It is worth any cost to let it shine.

“You do not yet look so happy as I mean you to be. – Aslan in The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis
