*****

“God loves us the way we are, but too much to leave us that way”

Leighton Ford

*****

“God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world”

“Though our feelings come and go, God’s loves for us does not.”

“God, who foresaw your tribulation, has specially armed you to go through it, not without pain but without stain.”

C.S. Lewis

*****

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Nelson Mandela

*****

“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”

Mother Teresa

***** 

“God allows us to experience the low points of life in order to teach us lessons we could not learn in any other way. The way we learn those lessons is not to deny the feelings but to find the meanings underlying them.”

Stanley Lindquist

 *****

“God promises a safe landing but not a calm passage.”

Bulgarian Proverb

*****

“It is by the fortune of God that, in this country, we have three benefits: freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and the wisdom never to use either.”

Mark Twain

*****

“Sure God created man before woman, but then again you always make a rough draft before creating the final masterpiece.”

Unknown

*****

 
“God has editing rights over our prayers. He will… edit them, correct them, bring them in line with His will and then hand them back to us to be resubmitted.”

Stephen Crotts

***** 

“I had conversations with people in Russia, South America, Africa. In my profiles, I wrote that I was looking for a Proverbs 31 woman. (The Old Testament chapter) talks about the perfect mate being trustworthy, hardworking, dedicated, faithful, putting God first. And Hope was the only one to respond to the Proverbs 31 reference.”  😛

Mike Summers

*****

“Nations have recently been led to borrow billions for war; no nation has ever borrowed largely for education… no nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization. We must make our choice; we cannot have both.”

Abraham Flexner

*****

“By gnawing through a dike, even a rat may drown a nation.” 🙂

Edmund Burke

*****

“Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.”

Patrick Henry
