...men can do God's work in their own strength, then it is not God's work at all.
If we can accomplish tasks without God, then He will not get the glory. People will look at what we have done and give us the credit.
"Seek the Lord and His strength;
Seek His face evermore!"
"It is God who arms me with strength,
And makes my way perfect."
"In the day when I cried out,
You answered me,
And made me bold with strength in my soul."

(my poor blog has been rather abandoned lately).
And as I've been thinking about my summer in China the past few days, I thought I'd share a few more random pictures from a weekend trip we took to Xi'an...
Chinese paper cut -- jumbo size!
A rare -- but welcome sight. A western toilet!!
Enjoying beef noodle soup...with chopsticks!!
Such precious memories.

I am glad to know you simply as a friend.
And I'll be standing by you in the end!
I thank the Lord for everything you do.
I will be an open door that you can count on,
I'll be there to pray for you and for the ones you love
I believe that He will finish all He's started in you!
Anywhere you are -- anywhere you've been! I will be an honest heart you can depend on
I will be your faithful friend.
I am one of many whose path has been made clearer
By the light you've carried faithfully as a warrior and a child.
God has used you greatly to encourage and inspire --
You've remained a true friend all the while!
And I always will remind you to be seeking His face! I will be an open door that you can count on
Anywhere you are -- anywhere you've been.
I will be an open door that you can count on
Anywhere you are -- Anywhere you've been
I will be an honest heart you can depend on
I will be a faithful friend.
