My disciples are measured not by how much they can pick up but rather by how much they can lay down.

May the light of His Glory shine into every area of our life that we might be made compatible with

falling apart but falling into place as He begins that heart change, that the glory and
the excellancy might be of Him and not of us. For this treasure has been placed in
