For the last few months I’ve had this phrase on my phone’s background
“Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on me”Isaiah 30:15 (The Message paraphrase)
It’s a reminder that I’ve placed before my eyes as frequently as my phone ever is (too often), in the hope that it will eventually soak into my heart. It speaks to my all-too-human impulse to make it happen for myself, to take things into my own hands and bend them to my own will. To make it work… somehow.
