Today I will rely entirely and wholly on God’s power, always seeking to be a true voice and witness, but never basking in my own, feeble abilities, however grand they may appear to me.
1 Corinthians 2:4
When I talked with you or preached, I didn’t try to prove anything by sounding wise. I simply let God’s Spirit show his power.
Contemporary English Version

Today I will be drawn to God’s altar by the power of the Resurrection, not by my genius.
Photo interpretation: We tend to associate God’s power with great, sometimes frightening, images like lightening or huge ocean waves. In a quieter way, God’s power is also revealed in the silent process of nature’s growth.
