“if we cannot resemble God in his sovereign independence,
he wishes to resemble us in our humility.”

Meditations for Lent
Jacques-Benigne Bossuet

(lavender blooming / Julie Cook / 2016)

Promises of greatness
Blinded by pride….
Fall now endlessly into the abyss of nothingness…

Independence caught by humility
Rescued by Grace
Fall into the hands of a Sovereign heart

Man has made himself god through his pride.
God makes himself man through his humility.
Man falsely credits himself with God’s greatness,
and God truly takes on man’s nothingness

Meditations for Lent
Jacques-Benigne Bossuet
