Do Not Be Axious

“Christ told his disciples not to be anxious about tomorrow, but he never said not to consider tomorrow. Intelligent problem solving demands careful consideration of the future effects of present solutions.” ~ R. C. Sproul

“It is only the cynicism that is born of success that is penetrating and valid.” ~ George Jean Nathan

Real Living

"The path to real living- the living that will sustain you and lead you to a true discovery of real love, provision and satisfaction is found only by following Jesus. Big things can be brought down by little things. But with Jesus, He can resurrect everything brought down by Satan. He is the lifter of your head, the redeemer of your circumstances, and the One who can set you back in flight." ~ Lysa TerKeurst

I have learned...

"I have learned that I am not equipped to handle what others have—both good and bad. I am, on the other hand, completely equipped to handle what I’ve been given. And the more time I spend being thankful for my life, the less I look around wishing for something else." ~ Lysa TerKeurst

Neutral Ground?

Prayer Is...

"Great grief prays with great earnestness. Prayer is not a collection of balanced phrases; it is the pouring out of the soul. What is love if it be not fiery? What are prayers if the heart be not ablaze? They are the battles of the soul. In them men wrestle with principalities and powers...The prayer that prevails is not the work of lips and fingertips. It is the cry of a broken heart and the travail of a stricken soul." ~ Samuel Chadwick

We are locked in a battle. This is not a friendly, gentleman's discussion. It is a life and death conflict between the spiritual hosts of wickedness and those who claim the name of Christ. ~ Francis A. Schaeffer

Unshakable Faith

"We pray for an unshakable faith, yet often forget that unshakable faith is not forged in the ground of an easy life or found in Christian cliches. Unshakable faith is forged in the proving ground that is full of unexpected twists and turns and sometimes even disasters." ~ Laura Bergmann

"The way to cover our sin is to uncover it by confession." ~ Richard Sibbes
