To Love the Lord My God by Helen Roseveare

“To love the Lord my God with all my soul will involve
a spiritual cost. I’ll have to give Him my heart, and let
Him love through it whom and how He wills, even if
this seems at times to break my heart.
 
To love the Lord my God with all my soul will
involve a volitional and emotional cost. I’ll have to give
Him my will, my rights to decide and choose, and all
my relationships, for Him to guide and control, even
when I cannot understand His reasoning.
 
To love the Lord my God with all my mind will
involve an intellectual cost. I must give Him my mind,
my intelligence, my reasoning powers, and trust Him
to work through them, even when He may appear to
act in contradiction to common sense.
 
To love the Lord my God with all my strength will
involve a physical cost. I must give Him my body to
indwell, and through which to speak, whether He
chooses by health or sickness, by strength or weakness,
and trust Him utterly with the outcome.”
