Whispers through Weakness

God whispers to us through weakness, forms us through suffering, and answers our spirit’s deepest cries through the gap between ideal and real.

Eternal Marks

We humans want to make a name for ourselves. If we only understood that when we devote our lives to the glory of God, our existence on planet earth will leave marks - eternal marks. ~ Beth Moore

Insurance Policy?

How foolish that a man will insure life, home, car, everything except his soul, the only thing he will have a few years from now. ~ Vance Havner

Identify with HIS Interests

To be a disciple means that we deliberately identify ourselves with God's interests in other people. "That ye love one another; as I have loved you . . ."

Given Light...

God grants us light to the degree that He sees we genuinely desire to know His will and do it. ~ Watchman Nee

He Is With Us...

Jesus really is with us. Every minute, thought, and action is a duet. How it must pain Him when we live life like a solo. ~ Alicia Britt Chole

Weeping at HIS Feet

Sin has been glossed over; men do not regard themselves sinners and subsequently feel no burden of guilt, and of course no relief in His pardon. We bring Him verbal tribute, worldly compliments on Sunday, but few fall weeping at His feet. ~ Vance Havner

God's Will...

"The Word of God must shape us, the Spirit of God must fill us, and the purposes of God must become ours. Our minds must be renewed." Chris Tiegreen

2Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will. ~ Romans 12:2 (NIV)

Our Satisfaction or His?

Let us ask ourselves often: Does our work for Him minister first of all to our satisfaction, or to His? 
~ Watchman Nee

Transformation Time

We each carry a certain amount of pain from our very birth. If that pain is not healed and transformed, it actually increases as we grow older, and we transmit it to people around us. We can become violent in our attitudes, gestures, words, and actions.
We must nip this process in the bud by acknowledging and owning our own pain, rather than projecting it elsewhere. For myself, I can’t pretend to be loving when inside I’m not, when I know I’ve thought cruel, judgmental, and harsh thoughts about others. At the moment the thought arises, I have to catch myself and hand over the annoyance or anger to God. 

~ Richard Rohr

Experience Revival

Why is it easier to talk about revival than experience it? Because followers of Christ must become personally in the death and resurrection of Christ. And this requires repentance, prayer, watchfulness, self-denial, detachment from the world, humility, obedience, and cross carrying.

Really Live...

Do yourself and your neighbors a great big favor. Don't wait for death to really live. Tell God you want to be neon sign of life - lingering proof of the resurrection. ~ Beth Moore
