The only real strength we have to boast about is our weaknesses.
The only real work we should do everyday is rest in Christ.
Our glory is the Cross.
Our lessons come from our pain.
Our treasure is in earthern vessels.
We may botox, make over, and slap on the anti- potions, but the outer man is still decaying.
We may groan and grit, and be pushed and punished, but our tents are only temporal.
Our body is not naked, our approval comes not from man.
Our house is not built by hands, our home is not in this world.
For when we die daily, we truly live.
When we have nothing, we possess all things.
When we separate from the world, we are one with God.
Let us give in our deep poverty for we shall be enriched in everything.
Let us sow abundantly for God will make all grace and all sufficiency abound to us for all liberality.

- In the Old Testament in the Bible, there was a man named Jacob who "wrestled with God and man." He wouldn't let God go until God answered his prayers. God admired that and renamed him Israel, "the one who fought or wrestled and prevailed". He fought with man--his inner man--and conquered his own weaknesses. He's my hero. He is what I hope God and man see me to be.
