Monday Morning Munch No. 159 – Made for Greatness

And we’re not talking about another human.

The Olympics are great and I adore every part of them, but even the best athletes were made for more greatness than a piece of plated metal on a pretty ribbon.

God, You are the fullness of my heart.
You are the One who sees the inner workings of my soul and love me the same.
You are the One who will never leave or forsake me.
