This is from the booklet "Learning the Vocabulary of God" by Frank C Laubach.
Some good thoughts to start 2020.
"Nagpur India: Friday 1st January 1937
"God, I want to give You every minute of this year.I shall try to keep you in mind every moment of my waking hours.
I shall try to let my hand write what You direct.
I shall try to let You be the speaker and direct every word.
I shall try to let You direct my acts.
I shall try to learn Your language as it was taught by Jesus and all others through whom you speak-
in singing birds
and cool breezes,
in radiant Christlike faces,
in sacrifices and in tears.
It will cost not only much,
but everything that conflicts with this resolve."
