In this month of August, where we honour the women in our communities, I have chosen to share a few quotes from Joan of Arc, also known as the Maid of Orleans. She was a remarkable woman indeed and her complete loyalty to God cannot be denied. Although some of her ideas may have seemed a little strange, she was willing to live and die for Jesus. May these words inspire you today.
You say that you are my
judge; I do not know if you are; but take good heed not to judge me
ill, because you would put yourself in great peril.
Go forward bravely. Fear nothing. Trust in God; all will be well.
Every man gives his life for what he believes. Every woman gives her life for what she believes. Sometimes people believe in little or nothing, nevertheless they give up their lives to that little or nothing. One life is all we have, and we live it as we believe in living it, and then it's gone. But to surrender what you are, and live without belief - that's more terrible than dying - more terrible than dying young.
As you live your one life, offer it to Jesus.
Luke 13:23 (The Message) - "Put your mind on your life with God. The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires your total attention."
