I like this quote.
 
"Our hope in God pulls us into the future. Hope allows us to affirm the reality of the abundant life that is ours in Christ. Hope allows us to stand with those in pain and to hold them until they are able to feel the love of God for themselves again.

— Mary Lou Redding

Excellence vs. Perfection... which one will win? Read to find out! 
Some of the best nuggets of wisdom I have ever received came from my former pastor who, two years ago, told me that "you don't have to be perfect, but to just be Charles." These simple yet powerful words have remained in my brain to this day as I do my best to live a life of excellence as opposed to perfection. My overachieving tendencies have oftentimes resulted in perfectionistic behavior in which I set very high expectations for myself and, co...
