Texts from Preston.


“Years ago, I read that the average woman today has the equivalent of fifty full-time servants, in the form of modern, timesaving devices and equipment. That figure may or may not be accurate, but we certainly have many conveniences available to us that were unknown to women of past generations. Imagine going back to the days when there were no dishwashers, microwaves, washing machines, dryers, or automobiles. . . .

So why are our lives more harried and hurried than ever? Why are we so stressed out? . . .

In Jesus’ words, we find a clue—a powerful Truth that sets us free from the bondage of hurry and frustration about all we have to do. Notice what work Jesus completed in the thirty-three years He was here on the earth: 

“I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do” (John 17:4 KJV). That is the secret. Jesus didn’t finish everything His disciples wanted Him to do. . . . He didn’t finish everything the multitudes wanted Him to do. . . . But He did finish the work that God gave Him to do.”
