“The fear of living an insignificant life resonates with many of us, but in our exhibitionist culture we’ve been formed to believe that significance comes from being noticed.

Joel 2:12-13 (NLT)
“That is why the LORD says, ‘Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.’
