"..this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body."
2 Corinthians 4:7b - 11

We were reading in 2 Corinthians last night before bed and I loved this part. I had to share it with you. And it makes me think of how I need to die to my ugly, human, sinful self every day. I want to make more room for God in my life/soul/heart. I just love how this verse applies to so many different aspects of my life and all the many places I need to die and move over of there is no room for the LORD in my life.

...hard pressed on every side, but not is hard not to think your being crushed to death sometimes.
