A Life Explained by God

“The great mark of a Christian is what no other characteristic can replace, namely the example of a life which can only be explained in terms of God” (Cardinal Emmanuel Suhard).

It’s not me trying harder. It’s not me being perfect. It’s about the life of the indwelling spirit of Christ coming out of me the more I stop trying to be a good Christian and start surrendering to God’s work in me.

On the best days, I need God. On the worst days, I need God. It’s never about getting to where I don’t need God anymore. It’s about seeing more and more of how deep that need is.
