Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. —James 1:12
God cares a lot more about who we are and who we are becoming than about who we once were. He cares that we keep on trying. —Dale G. Renlund
