journey

The journey between what you once were and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place. Barbara DeAngelis

Your life is a journey you must travel with a deep consciousness of God. It cost God plenty to get you out of that dead-end, empty-headed life you grew up in. 1Peter 1:18  (Message Bible)

God-given

Talent is God given, Be humble.
Fame is man-given. Be grateful.
Conceit is self-given. Be careful
John Wooden

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom andi knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
“Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?”j
“Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay them?”
For from him and through him and for him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen.
Romans 11:33-36
