The great enemy of the life of faith in God is not sin, but the good which is not good enough. The good is always the enemy of the best. ...We have to learn to walk according to the standard which has its eye on God. - O.C., My Utmost For His Highest, May 25
God desires most from you...the one thing that no one else can give Him - your affection. Just as much as God longs for your love, there's an enemy who seeks to steal it. ... Satan can't stop worship from happening, but he'll deceive anyone who lets him, leading them to empty wells and puny gods. Our lives are on loan from God, a sacred trust of opportunities and decisions. ... Every one of our choices is made on a battlefield with heavenly ramifications. - Louie Giglio, The Air I Breathe, pgs. 31, 32

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not take them bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;//Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing thereHad worn them really about the same,//
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,I doubted if I should ever come back.//I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made the difference.
"These little moments ... matter, for they are where we live every day."
