March 9 – All in A Day’s Work

Upon examination, what did Mary Geegh do, more than to keep her heart clean, listen and obey?

Those are bedrock essentials for all of us in Cor Unum.

What more is there? We are not called to initiate or determine courses of action to bring before God for His “approval.”

God has a plan, and His sheep hear His Voice.

Mary Geegh spent thirty-eight years on the mission field in India, listening for her next part in God’s plan. Most of those with whom she spoke were not missionaries. They were students and wives and businessmen, but they, too, learned what God had planned for them, and time after time, when they listened, they were given a simple step of obedience that altered the course of their lives in truth and blessing.

Here in Cor Unum, we are not afraid to discover God’s NEXT step for us. He leads us beside still waters. He restores our souls. He leads us in paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.

He prepares for us a table in the presence of our enemies, and our cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy follow us all the days of our lives, and we will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Like Mary.
