Modern Day Saints

People who knew Henrietta Mears say she was a woman of vision-one who wasn’t afraid to trust God no matter how difficult the circumstances. They also tell of her single-minded devotion to God-a trait that developed very early and remained until her death. 
Billy Graham once said of her: “I doubt if any other woman outside my wife and mother has had such a marked influence [on my life]. She is certainly one of the greatest Christians I have ever known!”       On March 20, 1963, Mears “slipped through that veil between present and the hereafter. . . . ” Someone remarked, “It was nothing new for her to meet her Lord alone, for she had often done so. This time she just went with Him.” 

What a statement about someones life… No dilemmatic sacred-secular divide in her life. A true image of an inspiring Christ-follower and a fitting epitaph of a life lived with simplicity and significance – google her name and find out why. It reminds me of the superb Biblical CV of Enoch – ‘Enoch walked with God’!
