Let’s quit trying to be the hero.  God is the hero.  I am only part of the rescue plan.

From Isaiah 55:9-11:  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.  For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there until they have watered the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”

Jess Connolly (born 1984) is an American writer and life coach.  Much of her writing focuses on family and faith.  She assisted her husband, Nick, in starting a church in Charleston, South Carolina.

True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic.  It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.

Start where you are, use what you have.

Arthur Ashe (1943-1993) was an American professional tennis player.  During his distinguished career, he won 76 tournament titles, including three Grand Slam tournaments.
