some recent quotes I found encouraging:
worrying is a form of control. I don't want to be cracked open because of what happens when I loosen my mind. Everything spills out, joy and excitement and love, on the plus side, and anger sadness and frustration on the minus. And part of my mind would rather have neither than both. Books are powerful; they force us out of ourselves. Reading, and also writing force us to let go and relinquish control. - Veronica Roth
I need peace in my heart for what rises up in me to cloud the character of God.
We need to be so relaxed with who God is that we relearn how to dream.
A great vacuum exists for us to know God as a father. - Bill Johnson
