Surrender your desires to GodScriptures

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5 NIV

Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense. Proverbs 19:11 ESV

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you. 1 Peter 5:6 ESV
