are you qualified

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10

You are not what you think you are. There is a glory to your life that your Enemy fears, and he is hell-bent on destroying that glory before you act on it. John Eldredge

In a very real sense not one of us is qualified, but it seems that God continually chooses the most unqualified to do his work, to bear his glory. If we are qualified, we tend to think that we have done the job ourselves. If we are forced to accept our evident lack of qualification, then there’s no danger that we will confuse God’s work with our own, or God’s glory with our own. Madeleine L’Engle

    “the most unqualified to do his work, to bear his glory.” Sometimes hard for me to accept but thank you for the true perspective in life. -unqualified

  2. I’m reading through The Chronicles of Narnia with my sons and this piece immediately brings me into the Narnian forest. I want to listen for the naiads and dryads and expect a faun to appear between the trunks as I take the image in.

    Nice work!
