Things I have learned...
Don't think less of yourself...think of yourself less
Humility is confidence rightly placed
Prayer is not a way to draw God's attention to our needs.
It is a way to draw our attention to how much we need God.
a fave verse from Philippians 4: 6-7
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Peace is not the absence of conflict
but the handling of conflict without loss of balance
-Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro
It's all about love
Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
Matthew 22: 37-40
our words are noise,
our spiritual gifts amount to nothing,
and our greatest sacrifices lose their meaning.
Love is the bottom line
