giving thanks: 14

Today I am thankful for gentle reminders of God’s love.

These 2 quotes are ones I’ve been thinking about lately. They are from some of our reading materials from last month when we studied our Identity.

“…God wants me to be with him and not do all sorts of things to prove I’m valuable.  My life has been doing, doing, doing.  I’m a driven person, wanting to do thousands and thousands of things so that I can show—somehow, finally—that I’m worthwhile.”
Henri Nouwen – Spiritual Direction

“Nobody has to clean up his act in order to be forgiven or loved; all anybody has to do is believe (trust, have faith) that he’s home free already, and then enjoy the forgiveness he’s had all along by passing it on to everybody he runs into.”
Robert Capon – The Mystery of Christ
