Life Beyond Tinseltown

When things are going well we become overconfident. We become enamored with what we perceive as being good before us while simultaneously ignoring what is dying or dead beyond. Humility is found when the glimmer of tinsel is overcome by the weight of reality. That is when we realize how broken we really are and, perhaps for the first time, we are able to breath.

“To be alive is to be broken; to be broken is to stand in need of grace.” -Brennan Manning
