He Stoops to Conquer

“It is a poor thing to strike our colours to God when the ship is going down under us; a poor ting to come to hm as a last resort, to offer up ‘our own’ when it is no longer worth keeping. If God were proud, he would hardly have us on such terms: but he is not proud, he stoops to conquer. He will have us even though we have shown that we prefer everything else to him, and come to him because there is ‘nothing better’ now to be had.”
– C.S. Lewis

{I am exceedingly thankful that this is true.}
