The Quote of Wednesday

I have been reading "Stepping Heavenward" by Elizabeth Prentiss. It is a most amazing book which I think I must read again to more fully grasp all that was said.
So here is a quote from it:

"Bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. Take
what I cannot give--my heart, body, thoughts, time, abilities, money,
health, strength, nights, days, youth, age, and spend them in Thy
service, O my crucified Master, Redeemer, God. Oh, let these not be
mere words! Whom have I in heaven but Thee? and there is none upon
earth that I desire in comparison of Thee. My heart is athirst for
God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?"
