but give me powers equal to my tasks,
for I want to be stretched by things to great for me.
I want to grow through the greatness of my tasks,
but I shall need your help for the growing.
-E. Stanley Jones
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
-2 Corinthians 4:16-17
