Life Is a Gift from God. Do Not Take It Granted.

Less of Me, More of God

Less of Me, More of God

I’m slowly learning to celebrate my weaknesses. I would never do that without God’s grace. But one of the most beautiful facts of Christianity is that we don’t have to be strong. Because God is strong. And when we live and move in him, his strength is ours, we can be as weak as we are. That’s why I’ve learned to celebrate my weaknesses. When there’s less of me, there’s more of God. That’s what I want: less of me,…

Do Not Trust in Your Own Reasoning

Do Not Trust in Your Own Reasoning

Life is tough. It is especially tough if you try to manage it totally on your own. But you do not have to do it on your own. Help is available.
