“It is spiritually toxic

and personally disastrous

to assume that we have ever arrived,

that we can stop making progress…”

Are you resting or pursuing perfection?

“I want God’s power

but all too often feel spiritually impotent.

I want God’s authority

but all too often cower in fear and doubt and self-loathing.

I want God’s victory

but am often defeated on a daily basis.

And yet—


there are glimpses,

tiny splashes of glory,

that reflect a power,

a wisdom,

a work not my own,

that must have its genesis in heaven.”

Gary Thomas, Holy Available (pg 193-194)
