Increase God Confidence and Decrease Self Confidence, but TRY!

Here is a wonderful quotation by Theodore Roosevelt that is posted on a door at my friend E.J.’s house. It was so encouraging to me that I wanted to pass it along!

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcomings, who knows the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in the end the high achievement of triumph and who at worst, if he fails while daring greatly, knows his place…Shall never be with those timid and cold souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

  1. It hit me at a time when I was feeling like, “What’s the use, I’ll never succeed.” Happily, success is not the point. Attempting to please the Lord because we love Him is!
