"Duty is ours; results are God's." John Quincy Adams
This quote is so encouraging to me. Even though our kids grow and mature so quickly, in the day to day of it all, it often seems as if no real progress is being made - in us or in the children. It can be discouraging.
Unless we remember, as John Quincy Adams did, that God is in charge of the results.
"And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary." Galatians 6:9
