The first one seems so true! It's only when we give up our control and surrender what WE think is best that God can finally work and have his way.
The second is something I stand by a lot because it doesn't matter if you don't have a degree or aren't the best in your field, God didn't use the people who had it all together but the humble who knew they had nothing to offer but a willing heart. Therefore God is the one who gets all the glory!
Today I am thankful for these little reminders.
