Quote by Pam Brown
For every person who has ever lived there has come, at last, a spring he will never see. Glory then in the springs that are yours.
This quote is a reminder to appreciate and cherish the present moments, as every individual will eventually experience a spring (a season symbolizing new beginnings and beauty) that they will never witness. It encourages us to find joy and "glory" in the springs that we do have the opportunity to witness in our lives, emphasizing the importance of living in the present and being grateful for the experiences and blessings we have.
Your exercise of faith builds character. Fortified character expands your capacity to exercise greater faith. Thus, your confidence in making correct decisions is enhanced. And the strengthening cycle continues. The more your character is fortified, the more enabled you are to exercise the power of faith for yet stronger character.
You don't run against a bloody stop watch, do you hear? A runner runs against himself, against the best that's in him. Not against a dead thing of wheels and pulleys. That's the way to be great, running against yourself. Against all the rotten mess in the world. Against God, if you're good enough.
