..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

Amy Carmichael on Wanting to Be Used by God

If I crave hungrily to be used to
show the way of liberty to a soul in
bondage, instead of caring only that it be
delivered; if I nurse my disappointment
when I fail, instead of asking that to
another the word of release may be given,
then I know nothing of Calvary love.
... Amy Carmichael (1867-1951), If [1938], London: SPCK,
1961, p. 52

Wonderful quote. And the whole thing about wanting to bring liberty, that really spoke to me.
