this was from last week's church

"If we choose the way of desire, our greatest enemy on the road ahead is not the Arrows, nor Satan, nor our false lovers. The most crippling thing that besets the pilgrim heart is simply forgetfulness, or more accurately, the failure to remember....I have had enough encounters with God to provide a lifetime of conviction--why don't I live more faithfully? Because I forget."

-John Eldredge


that couldn't be more accurate for me. it's unbelieveable.
