Quotable

Sometimes a quotation jumps off the page... From this morning's reading... "To be a character requires gratitude for one's uniquely carved being. Do we delight in the strengths that are fearfully crafted into our characters? Do we bless how those strengths wondrously serve others? If we are not aware of our fearful and wondrous potential, then we probably aren't troubled by our failures or grieved by how we harm others. When we see the glory we can achieve, our choice of dross over gold will break our hearts."
Dan Allender, Leading with a Limp, p. 149.

I'm constantly undermined by sensing the possibly glory but fearing it immensely.

Uh, that would be "possible" glory. See what I mean?
