I know I've put this on here before, but I'm doing it again. Because it is too stinkin' good.
We spend most of our lives trying to make things happen for ourselves and for the people we love. But life is not reduced to what you give or know or achieve. Nor is it reduced to your mistakes, your failures, or your sin. Life isn’t even defined by whom you love.
Rather, it is defined by the God who loves you. In other words, you are not the central character- not even in your own life’s story. This is not meant to demean you; it’s meant to set you free.
-Sacred Thirst by M. Craig Barnes
Tell me, does it get any more better than this?
