~ Wisdom for Wednesday ~


"There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak come from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight."  ~ Numbers 13:33

*Note: When I read this verse, I realized that the Israelites who did not enter the Promised Land were in lack of confidence in themselves and in God...they saw themselves as small in comparison to others, and they then perceived that the giants in their lives saw them as small, as well, even though the giants never saw the spies...*

"Above all the grace and the gifts that Christ gives to His beloved is that of overcoming self." ~ Francis of Assisi

"I know the power obedience has of making things easy which seem impossible." ~ Mother Teresa

"Obedience is an act of faith; disobedience is the result of unbelief."
~ Edwin Louis Cole

    I'm currently reading a book called "Victory over the Self-centered Life." I don't think we realize how we really are sometimes.

    Miss you on the forum!
