‎"Our greatest fear as individuals and as a church should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that really don't matter." -Tim Kizziar

I so desire this for my life. Reading in Francis Chan's book today, Crazy Love, I came across this quote. It gives me such peace. I don't need to succeed at party planning, being the most organized wife, or wearing the most put together outfit.

I need to love the Lord with all my heart, mind, and strength as the scriptures say. Apart from this, I will be bold enough to say that nothing matters. Our of loving the Lord will overflow a heart to be hospitable, loving to my family, and healthy. But they are not important in and of themselves.

If you aren't reading a good book right now - I hands down recommend Crazy Love. It impacts me every time I pick it up and gets us to think outside of ourselves.

Off to a day of a wonderful Grammie here to visit, an Apple Cider Pressing Party, and a support appointment with two of my favorite people!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Great quote! You are right! I am constantly reminding myself that this is my most important lesson for my kids. It's so easy to get caught up in things that don't matter. Ultimately, I just want my kids to know Jesus. That really brings me to my knees in prayer.
