I am not what I ought to be.
I am not what I wish to be.
I am not even what I hope to be.
But by the cross of Christ,
I am not what I was.

-John Newton, from Follow Me, pg. 54-

"Love is a feeling of the mind as much as of the heart; it concerns the will as much as the emotions; it describes the deliberate effort that we can make only with the help of God.
In short, love is not an emotion, but an action. Love is the things we do...and hold back from doing. And love is a decision. Love is an act of the will. Plus, praise God, we have His help in showing forth His fruit of the Spirit, His love, in our hearts and our lives when we look to Him (Galatians 5:22)!

-Elizabeth George, from A Young Woman After God's Own Heart, pg. 115-
