-I honor her faith, and her life: Betty Scott Stam

Thursday, May 23, 2013

"Lord, I give up
All my own plans and purposes,
All my own desires and hopes
And accept Thy will for my life.
I give myself, my life, my all,
Utterly to Thee
To be Thine forever.
Work out Thy whole will in my life
At any cost,
Now and forever."
- Betty Scott Stam (Martyred in China, in the 1930s)

    Hmmm, they were slightly younger than my grandmother and grandfather who had planned to be missionaries in India until my grandfather contracted TB.

    I never heard of them. I love finding out about missionaries. They are really the examples to us. Doesn't seem like many people that I know even know of any past heroes of the faith. It really is a shame. I will mention someone, if I even get the chance to in a conversation, and they are utterly clueless. I guess people are getting satisfied with being mediocre spiritually.
