“God forgive us if we are more concerned about getting prayers answered than in learning total submission to Christ himself. We do not learn obedience by the things we obtain but by the things we suffer.”—David Wilkerson (via suchaprettysmile)
“The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven’t yet come to the end of themselves. We’re still trying to give orders, and interfering with God’s work within us.”—A. W. Tozer
I was digging in my garden this morning and found some cute grubs! I collected about 6 and put them in a little plant container for Lainey to see when she gets home from school. I sat the container on the concrete slab just a few feet away. After few minutes, I got up and was so surprised to see that there were only 3 grubs left in the container! What do you think could have happened to the other ones? I’m just baffled.
