I am not what I ought to be. I am not what I want to be. I am not what I hope to be. But still, I am not what I used to be. And by the grace of God, I am what I am.

That’s I quote I like. Also, I recall Don Carson requoting it more than once (as far as I can remember); the last time I heard him saying this was at the TGC conference in Albuquerque (New Mexico) in March 2012, unless I am very much mistaken.

Wow, Susanne! You have some memory for detail! My effort would be more like, “I think I may have heard that before, can’t think where, don’t know who…”

Yes, it’s a great quote. One we’d do well to remind ourselves of every day.
