Seek Him

'There are joyless souls filling our churches, souls who have not fully placed the Lord before their eyes. They believe He is up there, but they have not found Him relevant because they have not sought Him intimately." Chris Tiegreen

Hope in Him

God Loves...

God loves the inconsiderate co-worker, the salesman at the door, the noisy people in the next apartment, the disappointing teacher, the rude clerk at the store, and the pokey driver ahead of us. God loves, not tolerates, all of us at all times.

 ~ Aletha Hinthorn

Sharing Pain

"When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand." 

~ Henry Nouwen  (Out of Solitude)

Hiding Vs. Dealing...

"Sometimes it is easier to hide behind self rejection and loathing rather than deal with specific areas of sin that the Lord points out to us. But what is easier often becomes a snare, never allowing us to truly take personal responsibility for our actions. For example, it can be easier to say, "I am a horrible person and utterly hopeless, so why even try?" than to say. "I repent of my selfish anger and with God's grace, choose to work with Him so I no longer live in this anger any longer" 

~ Katherine Walden

Secret Place

"When we live in the secret place it becomes impossible for us to doubt God, we become more sure of Him than anything else."

Detach from This World

I want to be a more serious-minded Christian, more detached from this world, more ready for heaven than I have ever been in my whole life. I want an ear that is sharp to know the voice of the enemy, whether it comes from religion, politics, or philosophy ... I would rather stand and have everybody my enemy than to go along with the crowd to destruction. Do you feel that way? ~ A.W. Tozer
