Friday's QOTD

"I can't. God can. I'll let Him."

--from a student paper

That is faith defined in seven short words. Did you say that came from a student paper?

I agree that this is brilliant. This is a simple, common summary of the first three steps of the Twelve Steps program:
"I can't" (We admitted we were powerless,)
"God Can" (Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity)
"I'll let him" (Made a decision to turn our will and our lives to God as we understood him.)

I'm sorry, I meant to capitalize my "Hims" in the previous comment.

Yes, the student was saying it was a seven word abbreviation he received from a 12 step group.
