If we stop frantically trying to find our way to strength, our eyes can remain focused on the Savior who holds us in our weakness.
God never has—and never will—run away. He never leaves or forsakes His children.
God isn’t looking for greatness. He’s looking for people so humbled by His greatness that they don’t care whether they are small or significant, they just want to glorify Him.
