testing and purging

Test me, Lord, and give me strength
        to meet each test
        unflinching, unafraid;
    not striving nervously to do my best,
    not self-assured, or careless
        as in jest,
        but with Your aid.
Purge me, Lord, and give me grace to
       bear the heat
       of cleansing flame;
    not bitter at my lowly lot but mete
    to bear my share of suffering
       and keep sweet,
       in Jesus' name.
       ~Ruth Bell Graham

So beautiful! I had the chance to hear Anne Graham Lotz (Billy and Ruth's daughter) speak at a Just Give Me Jesus event last month. She spoke so sweetly of her parents and I know Ruth is greatly missed.
