Do I Really Have To?

Sometimes doing the right thing is hard.

Case in point…

My husband asked if I could run to pick up his dry cleaning while he was on a conference call for work. Sure. So I drove across town, paid, grabbed what they gave me, and then headed home.

“Are my suit pants cleaned too?” Brad asked when I brought the dry cleaning in the house.

“I’m sure they are, honey. I remember seeing them in the bag when I dropped them off.”

I checked. No suit pants.

“There are only shirts here, Brad, but I do remember there being a dark pair of pants in there last week when you gave me the bag!”

“I definitely had pants in there,” he replied. “Can you please call the dry cleaners and find out where they are?”


“Hello, mister dry cleaner man. When I dropped my husband’s clothes off last Wednesday there was a pair of suit pants in the bag. I just picked up his laundry a little bit ago and the pants are not with his order. Can you please check on those?”

“Mrs. Smith, our records show that we took in 18 shirts, but no pants. I’m sorry.” He said matter-of-factly.

“Sir,” I responded as my pulse began to rise, “My husband and I both remember there being a pair of his suit pants in the bag when I dropped it off on Wednesday. There must be a mistake and we need to figure this out. Are there any pants around your store that are unaccounted for? The missing suit pants are navy with a thin blue pinstripe.”

“Ma’am,” he began with an abrasive, defensive edge, “we don’t have pants just ‘lying around.’ We only took in 18 shirts. Beyond that, I don’t know what to tell you. People think they drop things off all the time, but we very rarely ever lose anything.”


I was more than agitated at this point. “Well, sir, what I know is this: my husband and I both remember his suit pants being in the bag that I dropped off to you last Wednesday. He can’t wear a suit without pants. This is pretty important. Can you please take my number and call us if and when you find them?”

“Yep. I have your number.” Then he finished with this smug gem, “I don’t expect them to show up, but will call you if they do.”

“Great. Thanks.” Click.

I was in a tizzy. Brad and I began to discuss the fact that we both knew his pants were in the bag… and then a thought came to my mind … which took me to the garage. And there, on the floor behind my drivers seat were his navy, pinstriped suit pants. Still dirty and blending in with the dark floor carpet of my car. Ugh! I walked back in the house and updated Brad.

“Do you think you should call and let the dry cleaner know that you found them?” He asked.

Inside I knew I should, but didn’t want to.

“No. I don’t want to. I don’t like him.” I replied childishly.

Almost instantly the Word of God convicted me. “If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.” (James 4:17)

Doggone it. I have to call him back.

I reluctantly dialed the number again.

“Hello! Dry cleaning company, how can I help you?”

“Hi. We talked a few minutes ago about my husband’s suit pants, and I am calling back to let you know that I found them in the back floor of my car. They must’ve fallen out of the bag. I’m sorry.”

His voice softened. “Well, thanks for calling back. Most people wouldn’t do that. I appreciate it. Have a good day.”

My brow was still furrowed when I hung up. No halo hovered above my head and my grumpy ‘tude still had a grip on me. Taking that step of obedience meant swallowing my pride and I didn’t like it. I didn’t want to do it. But I know it was required in response to my love for Christ.

Why is it sometimes hard for me to do the right thing?

Why is it hard to WANT to do the right thing sometimes?

I ponder the questions, yet know the answer: because on my own, I’m stubborn and self-seeking. Thankfully, by grace God’s Spirit works within to lead, correct, and guide.

Obedience is a constant battle: my will versus God’s will. It’s a battle that can only be won by surrendering. Jesus said that if we love Him, we will obey Him. (John 14:15, 21,23) Even when and if we don’t want to.

Where does this find you today? Is there anything that you know you should do, but haven’t done?

Dear Lord, Thank you for loving me even when I’m less than lovable. Please lead me in Your ways, refine my stubborn heart, and help me do the good You call me to do. In Jesus’ name, amen.



Read John 14. This is a conversation Jesus had with His disciples on the night He was betrayed. Jesus made many bold statements here.

Blessings and Grace,



Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be baptized in the waters of the Jordan River, just like Jesus was? (Matt 3) Have you read the Bible and imagined what it would be like to gaze out over Shepherds Field where the Star of David appeared and visit the cave revered as Jesus’ birthplace (Matt. 1:18‐25). Join the Girlfriends in God ministry team as we visit the Church of the Nativity, built above the cave and considered the world’s oldest functioning church… and so much more!

  1. Thank you sis! Your message today was much needed; I too, am stubborn, and most of the time; don’t want to admit that I am wrong! I appreciate your reminding me that I should live in obedience to God’s word, His love, and His guiding truth, then, everything will always work out for my best, and that is what God desires for us!!!❣❣❣

  2. Hi Gwen!!
    I loved this post which rang sooo true!!!
    Boy is it hard to swallow pride and eat some humble pie!!!!
    Our Lord though is so graceful that even when we want to resist humbling ourselves, He comes with a gentle reminder through His beautiful Word of what His perfect will for us is. One Word from Him breaks down all resistance and helps us to surrender to Him and thus be guided. I have lived this type of scene so many times and thank the Lord for being patient with me each time and thereby teaching me true obedience to Him…surrender. This post said it so well and had me laughing!!
    God bless you for sharing!!

  3. Again wonderful devotion given on may 22 and great wake up call to step out in Him when challenged. For me its not to give in to gossip and slate another person for my pride and wanting to fit in but put my trust in my identity in Him. Thanks again

  4. I love this piece, thanks Gwen!
    I believe that enough of us have no problem with being the heroic Christian who tells the cashier that ‘you’ve given me excessive change’. This type of doing the right thing which doesn’t cost our egos much, in fact it inflates and makes us feel glorious. But the example you have given is a sample of what most often presents in our lives and how Christ requires us to walk the talk in the most simple ways. This is certainly a reminder that right-living has to become a lifestyle as we continue to walk with Christ.

  5. Thank you for your encouraging devotions I receive everyday. Today I find myself struggling in reading God’s Word as I battle with severe anxiety and occasional panic attacks since January of this year. The illness has turned our lives completely upside down is has become debilitating as a wife and mother and I’m struggling with adjusting to the medication, which is the 7th I have tried. Please keep me in prayer for God’s complete healing but most importantly for the remembrance of the promises found in His Word that He will never leave me nor forsake me. I’m in the eye of the storm and am surrounded by darkness and sadly, sometimes feel that His presence is not with me. Please pray for continued strength, comfort and courage for my family and I as we journey through this torturous nightmare. Thank you so much for your uplifting devotionals. God bless!

  6. 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.

    “15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.” “
    ‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭1‬, 15-18 (NKJV) Hallelujah! 🌟

  7. How freeing it is to know that we do things not for our glory but for Gods glory. After studying John in BSF last year I fell in love with Jesus even more that I thought I could. I do the uncomfortable things like apologizing, being humble, praising God, teaching my kids to get along for that is what Christ would want and staying in my marriage through tough seasons. I love Christ more than I love myself…thank goodness!

  8. So often we find ourselves in this situation and battle with doing what’s right and last night at bible study the Pastor read from Romans 7:15-17, “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do no do, but what I hate to do 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good, 17 As it is, no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me.”

  9. The entire chapter is so very encouraging, but I kept going back to verses 1-3. I love how personal these verses are. Even though Jesus was speaking to his disciples, it felt like He was speaking directly to my heart this morning. He has gone to prepare a place for me. He’s coming back because He wants me to be where He is. Jesus wants me to be with Him. How encouraging is that? Sometimes it feels like God is so big and compared to all that’s going on in the world, I am so insignificant. These verses reassure me that God sees, knows, and loves me. Jesus is making things ready, and the Spirit is with me now. Going back to verse 1…Let not your heart be troubled. Much needed encouragement this morning. Thanks!

  10. Verse 31 “…..but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me.” WOW!! Imagine, what if Jesus did not do what the Father commanded him to do. That thought stopped me in my tracks.

  11. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

    I had forgotten the other day that the Holy Spirit is in me and desires to work through me. I had so much apologizing to do it was mind blowing. In an instant He wrapped His arms around me and comforted me. He assured me that He has my back, He needed me to step aside and I did.

  12. Verse 4…You know the way.
    Verse 17…The Holy Spirit
    These two verses distill for me that walking with Our companion in life is choice we earn by being in the Presence always, it is not an easy choice in this world. The reward is Ever blossoming however if listen and obey. Thank you 🙂

  13. John 14:23. The Lord will “make his home” with those who love and obey Him. That’s a promise for right now!

  14. I have FINALLY figured out “Without Me, you can do NOTHING”. So even my submission must be a “Lord, help me truly submit to Your holy will.” God in me is praised all the more when He gets the credit for any and all good in me. Be blessed today, sister! Thanks for your faithfulness!

  15. Sometimes swallowing your pride is like trying to swallow a sandwich whole and you feel like you’re going to chock …. But after your done, you live and feel so much better about yourself and know that you needed to do it. Thank you for your post. I needed this today. Renee

  16. At the beginning of this yr, my pastor announced he was taking a 6 month sabbatical in addition to telling us the building we worshipped in had been sold. I was very angry & hurt. I began to visit other churches that we far in distance but began feeling God telling me to go to a church that is a few minutes from me. I did not want to go to this church at all period but I finally surrendered & began to attend. It’s still hard for me but I believe I’m being obedient to God. God bless your ministry.

  17. Hi I’ve been reading in John for the past 3 days and obedience is the word that has been jumping out at me. We can say we believe but when we actually start to obey, well that changes things in our spiritual growth. God is good!

  18. Even if it is difficult, and I must swallow my pride, I know I must do the right thing in all situations. Lord, please give me the strength and courage to stand strong and do the right thing, in Jesus Name, amen!

  19. Good Morning! Thank you for sharing this message…I haven’t read John 14 yet, but I am going to. Will you please pray for me to have God-given courage, wisdom, strength and peace for a heartfelt matter? Thank you…God’s blessings always! – Cyndee

  20. Jesus said that if we love Him, we will obey Him. (John 14:15, 21,23) Even when and if we don’t want to. and this is a good one because yesterday I got my groceries and it was very cheap and I told that cashier it has never been that cheap and I then I realize I forgot to tell her to scan the dog food so I had to go back in their so she could do so. it made me feel better I just glad I figure that out before we left.

  21. That kind of thing happens a lot, usually with me it is telemarketers, I try to be polite. I even had one call me stupid.

  22. Thank you so much for sharing and the scripture. What jumped right off the page to me was the very first verse, let not your heart be troubled. To me that means I have an option. If my heart is troubled it’s because I choose to let it be. Never thought of it that way before.

    1. Post
  23. No, I will not abandon you or leave you as orphans in the storm—I will come to you. Verse 18….What a comfort it is that He will not abandon us …but He will come be with us thru the storms of live.

  24. Sometimes it hard to do the right thing. Like you said it’s a constantly battle. The what I get from it is to be able to release that aniexty feeling of being wrong. It sometimes is easy to accept it, apologize and move on with your life. For me depends on what it is so these versus are ehat stands out for me (John 14:15, 21,23) . I have a beautiful and blessed day <3

  25. Gwen
    This was really good!
    We sometimes forget that when we are obedient to Christ’s call in our lives that other people are watching and are affected by us.
    I know the reason why we are obedient isn’t because we think “oh, others are watching”, were obedient because God requires it. And although hard as it may be, others are indeed watching, and they are indeed affected by it. I find these circumstances coming up in my own life plenty of times and it truly is a time to shine for Christ!

  26. I really enjoyed this, made me think of the time when I was prideful and didn’t want to obey God in what I knew he was telling me to do, and there’s no greater regret than being disobedient! Knowing we could have helped someone come to know God or just encouraging them even if you don’t like them. Just like the article we’re supposed to not be self seeking, but humble ourselves and reach back out because if our love for God and people. It really made me reflect that I am stubborn sometimes and that’s not good, but I need to be humble and obey, because his word says obedience is better than sacrifice. God bless you! 🙂

  27. One sec I was laughing at your response to your husband asking if you were going to call the guy…that would so be me…no cuz you don’t like him. The next min tears are pouring as I SO desire to completely surrender every area of my life…it’s a tug of war many days …but He is full of mercy and grace . The verse that sticks out to me…..John 14:16-17
    He gives another advocate with us…to help us and be with us forever! Glad you reposted this!!

  28. Thank you for this today. The Holy Spirit is nudging me to call this person that i dont really want to call……and I am just procrastinating till i read your devotion today.
    So making the call.
    The verse that spoke to me – Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

  29. Thank you Gwen this was nice and powerful to Read. John 27 “peace I leave with you my peace I give you” Thank you Lord for giving to me that peace that comes from a true Living God! Life is so full of stress and uncertainty this verse asures me that nomatter how busy n stress life can be we have the peace of Jesus in us to make everything better. It is a gift He gave us.

  30. Thank you for i have been feeling some type way moving on in my life striving to go forward inside of my heart letting me know there are things that need be said in a loving peaceful and respected way to all. I have fallen short in my journey to succeed in what God knows i must do By that sometimes my slothfulness gets in the way of achieving the best i know Gods has for me. I know he said he would never leave me nor forsaken me and i truly believe that. My problem I’m facing is this test that i have been taken for awhile to become a better person in listening and the job I’m testing for to be licensed i have failed several times. And I’m at a point when i need instructions on how to see the end results.

  31. “24 “Anyone who does not love Me will not obey My teaching. These words you hear are not My own; they belong to the Father who sent Me.” John 14:24

    This nugget of Truth (Jesus=Truth) reminds me that “anyone” who wants to follow Jesus and claim their love for Him-must obey Him! We show our love for God by obeying His commands! Without God, [just merely our little selves], this is impossible but we know full well that with God all things are possible (Matt 19:26)! Hallelujah

    “1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God ; believe also in Me. Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:1‭, ‬27

    It is a command straight from Jesus’ mouth to not let our hearts be troubled and to not be afraid! Often, we tend to think this is a suggestion but Jesus always calls us to higher living through divine power. Also, Jesus calls us in John 14 to peace that is past our understanding and not at all of the world! May we look for true peace.

  32. Today is December 1st… the beginning of the Christmas season. This can bring much joy, but also turmoil and stress. All of our hidden emotional fears can rear their ugly heads like: finances, family members, loneliness or our marriages. It comforted me today to read John 14- the verse that stood out is- MY PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU…. we don’t have to go through this holiday frazzled- we have the peace of Christ.

  33. Thank you for this post. I found it so timely because I just went through something like this earlier this week. However, I was the one that went in calm to the business who had made the mistake. And if I had not contacted them, I would have had a great lose in a business deal.

    As I am talking to the manager, she continued to apologize for the mistake and was very surprise in my calm demeanor. After the transaction had cleared, I called and left a message for the manager to say thank you for taking care of it so quickly. Again, she was surprised I had called to confirm everything and to thank her for taking the time to handle it. She made mention again about my reaction to the situation. Her responded with, “Not everyone would have handle this mistake the way you did. Thank you.”

    God’s grace sent me in calmly and took care of it. It is his humble spirit within that keeps me as I am. I will continue to live for Christ. And pray I will walk the way he wants me to walk.

  34. Every time I read this chapter, it makes me so emotional. I end up with tears in my eyes. I want to say, “don’t go!” or “don’t leave us!” But then I see where Jesus calls us to have some faith. Verses 25 through 27 stand out for me. The Holy Spirit (not seen with the naked eye) and peace (again, something we can’t ‘see’) are comforts and hope He promises us in this world we live in, and feel sometimes like we have to ‘endure’. Thank you for reminding us of this!

  35. John 14:1 and 27 tell me not to let my heart be troubled. Hallelujah for the reminder!!! I woke up yesterday morning with the sudden realization that the next day(today!) would be December 1st. And my mind started into panic mode. I have been dreading the coming holiday season,because ours is the ” over the river and thru the woods to Grandmothers house we go” place. With 7 children,their spouses and significant others, grandchildren and our siblings, and sometimes a niece or nephew too, you can imagine the preparation it takes and the time it consumes……..I’ve been dreading Christmas! And my heart is troubled because I LOVE JESUS! I want to do what is right by HIM!! Last year I ended up in tears on His birthday because I was overwhelmed with too much on my agenda, no sleep, and too many expectations that I put on myself. Reading this devotion and the scripture has helped me confess my troubles to an all knowing Father, and ask for guidance from the Comforter that has been promised to us. THANKYOU Gwen. This was a timely reminder for the first day of a very special month! My hope is restored!

  36. John 14 is a favorite of mine, but I have been in a constant state of crisis that “let not your heart be troubled” had escaped me. I needed this reminder and a sweet refreshing in the Holy Spirit today. Thank you. Jesus has already revealed what is to be. Ours is to wait patiently and believe. I praise Him for His Faithfulness to us.

  37. As I read your devotional I noticed off to the side the words “Be the salt and the Light of the earth.” Last night I had dinner with my son and his girlfriend who is having my grandson this morning by c-section. She came to our family a little over a year ago and brought with her a beautiful little girl who is 2. Her mother was there as she is watching the 2 year old for the few days of hospital stay. She worked s hard yesterday getting ready for today and has been a huge blessing as she works to create a home and life for herself, her children and my son.

    I rarely use salt in my food and there has been many comments from my children that I am a good cook but lack spice. I have had dinner that she made and noticed that she salts a bit and her food is very good. So I brought this up. This morning I thought of it again as I read that it is important to be the “salt of the earth”. I will do a little study on this. But for right now I think it means that I need to be the “Light” which means to let Jesus shine through me, pausing, and listening to His guidance and trusting Him before speaking or acting. The “salt” is to be that good addition to each experience and interaction.

    I left the house with a troubled heart as I want all to be well and perfect for them. But there are so many unknowns for them. I remember being worried when I was their age and babies were coming. Would there be enough money? How am I going to do this? But the babies came and are grown now. I am so proud of them and grateful to God for helping me even though I often tried to do everything by myself.

    Two things stood out:

    #1: There are things to do that I continually do not do out of fear because I am not sure what the outcome will be. It is my responsibility to act on them and follow through because I trust Jesus and He puts things on our heart out of love and to teach us trust. I also notice that when I do not do them that there is often an unpleasant consequence as a direct result. Better yet, when I do do them, there is often an immediate Joy or a delayed Joy. I can always find the Joy, though, if I look for it.

    #2: My heart was troubled last night. My heart is joyful now after reading and praying. I trust You Jesus. Please help me to shine You today. Thank You so much for sending these two beautiful children to our family. Help me take Your presence in my life seriously and to own the authority and Power that You bring with You. Help me to love and show compassion but also to show Your Presence in my words and actions. Thank You also for my son and this wonderful strong woman. Help her to feel only love from me. Help me also to be an example of You. Lord, please calm her heart and Spirit. Help her to feel You. Help her to know You and help me not to do anything but shine You.

    Give my son strength and grace. He knows Lord. Help Him to know You more and feel Your love and guidance. Help Him to be a father based in You. Lord, release him from fear and protect this family from all darkness. Immerse us in Your grace and Love.

    I trust You Jesus…


  38. The statement that stood out for me this morning is ” You know the way to where I am going”. How convicted I became because I do know the way and realize that I all to often choose my way. Which makes me sad because I so want to be a true follower of Jesus.
    I pray for Holy Spirit help to live my faith daily, in the name of Jesus!

    Thank you Gwen for your ministry.

  39. I really enjoy reading your posts. Unfortunately sometimes I don’t read them every day and find I am missing something that day. Today’s scripture really speaks to me and your devotion. My husband has ALS and last night was really rough. I often don’t do the right thing at 2 am when I am so tired. He needs suctioned, turned over or maybe just a blanket over him. My attitude at 2 am is not always the best. I have prayed and prayed for patience in the night and strength only God can give to me. My husband loves the Lord but can’t speak anymore so I don’t know what he is thinking. This scripture is very comforting knowing there is a better place for him even though our hearts are hurting knowing there is no cure and watching him deteriorate. Trusting God is the only way we get through each day.

  40. I read John 14 and I have notice LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED start the chapter and you see it again near to the end. This is a clear sign that when we let our hearts be troubled about issues and situations we can loose focus on what God says in His word. It is yes so comforting knowing that even with our past Jesus still chooses us to fulfill His purposes here on earth and yes so thankful that nothing can separate me from Him /from His love,with all that I am going through right now I stand assured that God got this ,so I will not let my Heart be troubled, I choose to believe God and will not let go of my confidence in Him which is my reward ,be bless and thank you for the word this morning and I will be meditating on this scripture for today.

  41. This blog and coinciding scripture helped me to refocus this morning. My hubby and I have recently been going through some marital difficulties, and my emotions have often run amuck (along with my behavior!) This devotional and John 14 reminded me to focus on loving Jesus through my behavior, ie obedience to His Word…and NOT to focus on my feelings as much.
    I found your e-devo a few days ago, while staying at my mother’s for Thanksgiving. I was looking online for something to break up the monotony of my daily morning time with the Lord. Love love love how this devotional, and others like it on Crosswalk, are interactive (asking the Lord to show and lead us deeper.)
    God bless!

  42. The hope of heaven and many mansions things on earth aren’t always right and sometimes I have to do things I don’t want to but there is heaven. This was helpful sometimes I wonder IF I can obey God BC something’s He asks are really really difficult but your simply example helped whether the issue is big or little it’s the same pride we have and humility we need.

  43. I love that in John 14 he tells us that God is preparing a place for us with Him. That is so very comforting! I can’t wait until Jesus comes to get those who love him in His second coming! Thank you for your devotion, it always gets me in a better place than I was when I sat down to read it. God bless you!

  44. Everyday I read your post, I get inspired, I see those areas in my life that God wants me to adjust & i find myself adjusting. All i can say is, i bless the day I stumble on & subscribe to this blog. Thank you and may God almighty who has called you to do his work continue to enrich you with his words in Jesus name. I wish I could write too, I wish I could follow in your footsteps

  45. Great devotion! Eating humble pie not always what I order for dessert lol but it is the best dessert when I do Oder it because it reflects Gods glory and grace!
    John 14 is very chockfull. I like how v1 starts out, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and also in me. The only way I can not have a troubled heart is trusting in God and Jesus. I know when my heart is troubled that I am doing things in my strength and not His. Does that mean that I will not have troubles! Nope it sure doesn’t, but my peace can not come from my circumstance. My peace has to come from Him. My favorite verse that I have been resting on this last month starts in v2: “There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? v3: When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so you will always be with me where I am.” WOW!!! So let me get this straight YOU the God of the heavens and the earth are going to prepare a place for ME!!! And you’re coming to get me when it’s ready!!! WOW right! Me? You’re coming to get me? Yes me!!! I belong to Him, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! I am royalty! And sister if you are His you are royalty also!!! Yes even though you may have: lied, cheat, stolen, and maybe even had an abortion! Yup these are ALL forgivable … yes everyone single one! When we repent of our sins, confess with our tongue that Jesus is Lord we are at that moment we are HIS!!! He doesn’t say, ” Well … wait let me look at the things you’ve done and ponder a bit. Nope He sure doesn’t. Better yet from BEFORE time began (that’s right sisters) He chose you! Knowing all that you would do, yes ALL and He still chose you!!! He loves us that much!!! Then He’s going to prepare a place for us and come get us when it’s ready!!! This really just blows my mind! Will you ponder this with me today? And be in His awe with me? Let’s lock arms together today sisters! Are you in?

  46. I am proud of myself for the choice I made to subscribe to your blog and excited to go step by step with you as imperfect as I am and live a purposeful life for Jesus. Today he ask me, “if you love me ,you will keep my commandments” john 14:15.
    I seek to know Jesus and his commandments more…and I pray and ask in his name for the grace to do the good I out to do always..amen
