"We spend most of our lives trying to make things happen for ourselves & for 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 wordsm you are not the central character-not even of your own story.  This is not meant to demean you; it is meant to set you free."
-M. Craig Barnes

Thank you! Definitely needed to this for the past couple of months we have had. We definitely forget this, at least I do, and need to be reminded often.
