Henri Nouwen

I would like to share some words of wisdom that Henri Nouwen wrote:

"As you see more clearly that your vocation is to be a witness to God's love in this world, as you become more determined to live out that vocation, the attacks of the enemy will increase. You will hear voices saying, 'You are worthless, you have nothing to offer, you are unattractive, undesirable, unlovable.' Do not be afraid. The more you are called to speak for God's love, the more you will need to deep the knowledge of that love in your own heart. The farther the outward journey takes you, the deeper the inner journey must be."

I hope that this makes you feel as good as I did when I first read it. Peace!
