From the perspective of Christian stewardship, she writes about the joy of being a channel of blessing to other people and the importance of giving, even if it is out of poverty. On using one's talents she notes "the essence of creativity is to seek Him first." She adds "He will show us how to make the best use of our talents and create something that other people need or enjoy." He certainly did that with her talents. Her ministry continues posthumously. The books she's contributed continue to bless those of us who are still on this side.
Catherine Marshall's chapter 3, "The Oughts and the Anys" was the beginning of my conscience's eye-opener. It was a real "knee-jerk!" I literally went to my knees begging God to show me who I hadn't forgiven. The revelation came the next morning as I awoke. Every time something triggered an old negative memory of someone's offensive action or something I allowed to greatly annoy me, I would relive the entire incident, detail by detail. Yet, God forgives me my mistakes and refuses to recall them. I had some real homework to do!
The next chapter that completed my moment of truth was entitled, "The Law of the Generations." It brought me to the conclusion of why my prayers for my son were not being answered. Here is a quote from a list that a friend shared with Catherine:
"For now, do not ask anything for your son. He is God's child as well as yours; God loves him even more than you do. Turn him over completely to that light of Christ within him.
"Whenever you think of your son, picture the light spreading as God does His own work in this boy."
When I remembered that God wants me to forgive as He forgives me, and that He can't listen to my requests unless I do, this book has changed my prayer life.
