Mother Teresa went to Calcutta after a life-changing incident back home. So did Gladys Aylward before China. Corrie ten Boom went on to minister to so many young people through her clubs (before the war). Alice Henderson spent years in the mountains with a remote mission colony. And Jane Austen wrote 6 of the most loved books in history. And Elisabeth Elliot?

What did they all go through?

Broken hearts.

How did they make it? What was their secret to such sacrifice to self? I know I'm not as strong as they are. But I always ask myself this.

If God asks me to separate myself just for Him, would I have the courage to do so?

It's frightening.
