A Quote by Madeline L’Engle

“In a very real sense it seems that God continually chooses the most unqualified to do His work, to bear His glory. If we are qualified, we tend to think that we have done the job ourselves. If we are forced to accept our evident lack of qualifications, there’s no danger that we will confuse God’s work with our own, or God’s glory with our own.”

Madeline L’Engle, Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art

I don’t know about you, but I have found this to be true in my own life. There are so many things in life I could never have done without God. Starting this blog was definitely one of them! I’m a shy introvert, so who could imagine I would lead a retreat? Give talks to groups of Christians? Even teach the adult Sunday School class? So, never turn down an opportunity because you’re afraid to try. If you sense it is something God wants you to do. Leave it in His hands and He will give you the ability to accomplish it.
