“Guest post with thoughts on Mother Teresa”~Missionary Teresa Devlin

Teresa Devlin

The spiritual life develops just as our physical. The valleys we sometimes travel may be dark to the point of shutting all earthly knowledge of what we perceive God to be. The process of God purifying us takes in the perfecting of our minds and how we perceive everything.
In the process God sometimes takes away the “consolation” of knowing as we are used to knowing. This in order to take us to a higher level of perceiving the purity, inmensity and power of God. We are finite and the work God does in us takes away the confidence of believing and seeing with that limitation, taking us to the broadness of infinity.

Jesus said He would be there as all these things take place. So, when God finishes our work on earth, we arrive at that moment of glory where we see as we are seen and know as we are known. The veil of darkness is taken away so the new reality of our transformation in God then takes hold.


In reading lives of great people of God, I see that many folks passed through these dark nights of the soul. I believe God never fails to put His stamp of approval on a life that has had the purity of intention in living out what He wants from us. Lottie Moon lost her sanity nine months before she went on to be with our Lord, due to her generosity in giving even her own food away.

God’s ways are not our ways.

Lottie Moon is one of the greatest missionaries to China known to us.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
