Realize How Small You Are
I am overwhelmed with an enormous sense of my own worthlessness – which is very nice and makes me dance and sing. – G.K. Chesterton
I was long attracted to this sentiment, but couldn’t entirely relate to it until reading I Believe in Love by Fr. Jean C.J. D’Elbee and The Spiritual Combat by Lorenzo Scupoli, which both repeatedly emphasize the importance of recognizing our own weakness and trusting in God’s strength in every endeavor. It is a lifelong challenge, of course, but can be a very freeing and joyful thing!
