Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load…

Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.

~ Corrie ten Boom

Lay bare your wounds…

image

Lay bare your wound to the healer. Only through shame can you be freed from shame. Tell him, and do not be ashamed. ‘This is my wound, Father; this is my injury. It happened because of my negligence and not from any other cause…’ He who exposes every serpent shows the reality of his faith, while he who hides them still walks the trackless wastes.

~ Saint John Climacus
