“Jesus healed people and met a lot of needs, but he didn’t meet every need. There were moments when he walked away from them to spend time with a smaller group or himself in order to refuel with the Father. If Jesus did this, then how much more do we need to do this.” – Ben Trueblood
“The courage isn’t to fix your problem but to voice your problem, to voice the awareness of the difficulty and the sturggle. You will be surprised by the people willing to help you once you voice this and will find people who are already there and want to help.” – Zac Workun
