A rich life in God

“Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger people. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be a miracle. Every day you shall wonder at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God.” Phillips Brooks, author of “O Little Town of Bethlehem” and famed nineteenth century preacher.

Wow, if only I could totally live within these thoughts. The words make so much sense, but too often I let myself be confined by my mind's limitations, instead of God's expansive love.
