Betty Stam

Betty Stam: Lord, I give up my own purposes and plans . . .

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Those words were written in the early 1900s by a young missionary named Betty Stam, who was soon forced to prove that she meant them.

Betty: I give up my own purposes and plans, all my desires and hopes and ambitions, and accept Thy will for my life.

Nancy: Nine years after writing this prayer, Betty was martyred, along with her husband, at the hands of Chinese communists.

Betty: Work out Thy whole will in my life—at any cost.

Nancy: You might not be called to serve exactly like Betty Stam, but we're all called to give up our own plans and embrace God's will. God may be asking you to be faithful to a husband who's difficult to love, or to homeschool your children, or to mentor another young woman. Whatever it is, would you accept God's plans—as Betty Stam did?

Betty: I give myself utterly to Thee to be Thine forever.

With Seeking Him, I'm Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
