Quotable: Measuring Sticks or Burning Bushes

December 4, 2013


“There will always be people who see everything in the world as a measuring stick of their worthiness, instead of as a burning bush of God’s gloriousness… “The world isn’t a forest of measuring sticks. The world is a forest of burning bushes. Everything isn’t a marker to make you feel behind or ahead; everything is a flame to make you see GOD is here. That God is working through this person’s life, that God is redeeming that person’s life, that God is igniting this work, that God is present here in this mess, that God is using even this.”

-via Ann Voskamp, How the Hidden Dangers of Comparison are Killing Us … {and Our Daughters} : The Measuring Stick Principle

      Yes, she does! She has a way with hearing the Spirit and sharing it all with words.
