Teresa on Living for God

Today's WORSHIP QUOTE is a short prayer from a 16th century mystic, a Spanish nun by the name of Teresa of Avila. Listen for echoes of the Apostle Paul.

Govern everything by your wisdom, O Lord, so that my soul may always be serving you in the way you will and not as I choose. Let me die to myself so that I may serve you; let me live to you who are life itself. Amen.

-Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
