You are Made for the Eternal...

People are made for the eternal and therefore cannot be ultimately satisfied by the temporary. When you are made for another world you cannot be fully happy with this one. Realizing this can help us as we face both difficult times and wonderful times. “God has set eternity in the hearts of men” (Eccles. 3:11). ~ Randy Alcorn

“I will trust Him. Whatever, wherever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him; in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him; if I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. My sickness, or perplexity, or sorrow may be necessary causes of some great end, which is quite beyond us. He does nothing in vain."

~ John Henry Newman

"Boundaries aren't restrictive fences meant to keep us from enjoying life, but gifts from a God who cares about our well-being." ~ taken from Lysa TerKeurst's Facebook page.

Prayer and Fasting

"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." ~ Andrew Murray

“By now you’ve probably realized you have a distinct choice to make: just let life happen, which is tantamount to serving God your leftovers, or actively run toward Christ.” ~ Francis Chan

Healing Comes

"Despite our best intentions, which sometimes end up with destructive results, the natural healing effect of beauty ments the wounds we leave behind, covering the rusting reality of past pain. Time and beauty heal a lot of old wounds." ~ Brendan Blowers (Footprints on the Door)

Sojourning Spirit

‎"Living in the United States makes it difficult for me to sustain a sojourning spirit. That is because, in large part, I easily become preoccupied with paraphernalia - stuff, gadgets, and luxuries that quickly become essential." ~ David Blowers (Footprints on the Door)

Sustain Life..

"Every one must study his own nature. Some of you can sustain life with less food than others can, and therefore I desire that he who needs more nourishment shall not be obliged to equal others, but that every one shall give his body what it needs for being an efficient servant of the soul. For as we are obliged to be on our guard against superfluous food which injures body and soul alike, thus we must be on the watch against immoderate fasting, and this the more, because the Lord wants conversion and not victims." ~ Francis of Assisi
