A woman's heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seek Him just to find her.
Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. It is the belief that God will do what is right.
Next time a sunrise steals your breath or a meadow of flowers leave you speechless, remain that way. Say nothing, and listen as heaven whispers, "Do you like it? I did it just for you."
I choose gentleness... Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice may it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.
Philosophers can debate the meaning of life, but you need a Lord who can declare the meaning of life.
The wizard [of Oz] says look inside yourself and find self. God says look inside yourself and find [the Holy Spirit]. The first will get you to Kansas. The latter will get you to heaven. Take your pick.
God leads us. God will do the right thing at the right time. And what a difference that makes.
You will be at your best forever, Even now you have good moments. Occasional glimpses of your heavenly self. When you change your baby's diaper, forgive your boss's temper, tolerate your spouse's moodiness, you display traces of saintliness.
Mark it down: God loves you with an unearthly love. You can't win it by being winsome. You can't lose it by being a loser. But you can be blind enough to resist it
Once you have seen his face you will forever long to see it again.
As soon as you can, pay your debts. As long as you can, give the benefit of the doubt. As much as you can, give thanks. He's already given us more than we deserve.
We see a hearse; we think sorrow. We see a grave; we think despair. We hear of a death; we think of a loss. Not so in heaven. When heaven sees a breathless body, it sees the vacated cocoon & the liberated butterfly.
When we see death, we see disaster. When Jesus sees death, he sees deliverance!
A few songs with Him might change the way you sing. Forever.
When he says we’re forgiven, let’s unload the guilt. When he says we’re valuable, let’s believe him. . . . When he says we’re provided for, let’s stop worrying. God’s efforts are strongest when our efforts are useless
You are the only you God made... God made you and broke the mold.
Don't measure the size of the mountain; talk to the One who can move it.
God rewards those who seek Him. Not those who seek doctrine of religion or systems or creeds. Many settle for these lesser passions, but the reward goes to those who settle for nothing less than Jesus himself. And what is the reward? What awaits those who seek Jesus? Nothing short of the heart of Jesus.
No one can do everything, but everyone can do something
May you live in such a way that your death is just the beginning of your life.
