This is another one of my favorite quotes from Mother Teresa:
“If you are discouraged it is a sign of pride because it shows you trust in your own power. Your self-sufficiency, your selfishness and your intellectual pride will inhibit His coming to live in your heart because God cannot fill what is already full. It is as simple as that.” – Mother Teresa
Overcome pride and you’ll not know discouragement. As complicated as we make it out to be at times, it truly is as simple as that.
