Who is your role model as a women?

Project 31 Day 30
Mother Teresa

She did things no one thought she should do, or could do.
Peoples' opinions of her never stopped her from accomplishing the tasks God called her to.
She gave up everything to serve the poorest of the poor in response to the calling of the Lord.
She never gave up.
She is the ultimate servant leader.

I didn't know to much about Mother Teresa until I watched this movie which reenacts her years of ministry. Watch it! It's amazing! This inspirational film lead me to read many books about this beautiful women. As I learned more about her I realized that Mother Teresa zoned out any hint of a worldly mindset and chose to see the world in black and white. She made things simple by realizing Jesus is all that is worth living for. She sought to teach people that loving others in the name of Jesus is what we are all called to do as followers of the living God. There are no exceptions. Her persistence and faith are a beautiful testimony of the relationship between God and a women, and the amazing things He can accomplish through those who are faithfully sold out for Him.

"I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world."
~ Mother Teresa
