We Were Truly of no Account, That no Flesh Should Glory in His Presence

I read this quote a few months ago, and put it in my commonplace book (of course). Then I put it on the fridge, and it has come to have deep and special meaning to me over these months of uncertainty with our little foster children. I wanted to share it here. 

“And we saw our calling, how [we] were truly of no account, that no flesh should glory in His presence.


Nothing anyone thought of us could reach lower down than that, no one could ever count us less than we were. But he that is down need fear no fall. He that is down cannot get between God and his glory.


And we knew there was nothing he could not do through us if only we were nothing.” (emphasis added)
