Love...


Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble,
Attempts what is above its strength…
It is therefore able to undertake all things, 
and it completes many things, and warrants them to take effect, 
where he who does not love would faint and lie down. 

~ Thomas a Kempis

Make a Difference...


Let God’s love shine through you today in an authentic way. It’s not being cheesy, joking, or faking happiness. It’s being real. Looking at people, not through them. Showing that you care. ~ C. Hosher

Letting Go...


Prayer is reaching out after the unseen; fasting is letting go of all that is seen and temporal. Fasting helps express, deepen, confirm the resolution that we are ready to sacrifice anything, even ourselves to attain what we seek for the kingdom of God.

Give...


When you give to others, you are blessed in ways that are hard to describe.... If you have not yet experienced this, you are missing out on one of the greatest opportunities life has to offer. ~ Stan Toler

To Love...To Forgive...

To love means loving the unlovable.
To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable.
Faith means believing the unbelievable
Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.

~ Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Holiness Is...


Holiness is the habit of being of one mind with God, according as we find His mind described in Scripture. It is the habit of agreeing in God’s judgment, hating what He hates, loving what He loves, and measuring everything in this world by the standard of His Word.  ~ J.C. Ryle

Shine...

Made for...


If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probably explanation is that I was made for another world. ~ C.S. Lewis

The Choice...


We can hug our hurts and make a shrine out of our sorrows or we can offer them to God as a sacrifice of praise. The choice is ours. ~ Richard Exley

Accountability...


We may think we don’t need accountability, but everyone needs it, especially those who claim to be Christ’s followers. We guard ourselves with the help of one another, not in judgment, but in mindful care. ~ M. E. Anderson

Church Hopping?


Sometimes changing to another church is the right thing to do. But perpetual church hopping helps no one. At some point, realize that no church is perfect largely due to the fact that the person reflected in the mirror isn’t perfect.  ~ M. Ellen

Prayer Life...


No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few prayers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere. 

~ Leonard Ravenhill

Sanctification...


By sanctification the Son of God is formed in me, then I have to transform my natural life into a spiritual life by obedience to Him. God educates us down to the scruple. When He begins to check, do not confer with flesh and blood, cleanse yourself at once. Keep yourself cleansed in your daily walk. - Oswald Chambers
