What God may hereafter require of you, you must not give yourself the least trouble about. Everything He gives you to do, you must do as well as ever you can, and that is the best possible preparation for what He may want you to do next. If people would but do what they have to do, they would always find themselves ready for what came next.

There is no peace in the border lands. The halfway Christian is a torment to himself and of no benefit to others.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person 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. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not-knowing, not-curing, not-healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

Complaining is an attitude choice that if left unchecked will wither my capacity to experience joy and genuine thankfulness.

Jesus had to face his suffering head on, but what we see in his example is still surprising: suffering doesn't have to disfigure us or destroy us. Jesus provides a path through suffering. Jesus didn't die so that you and I would never have to experience pain or suffering. Instead, Jesus’ suffering makes it possible for our pain to be transformed. Instead of living with open wounds, we follow the example of Jesus and become people who carry glorious scars.

  Darkness and hopelessness are terms that have no plural form, whereas light and hope do. Once you punch a hole in the darkness, light floods in.

We can speak it. We can say it. We can know all the right words. We can learn the language. But until we can LIVE it, it’s just more Christian rhetoric. Actions back our words. Actions are the proof of what we believe. Be the change.

The trouble with most Christians today is that they would rather be on the judgment seat than on the witness stand.

Watch your words about someone else, and even more so when others are criticising them behind their backs then acting kindly to their faces. Be the ONE who dares to confront those who gossip about others. It has to stop somewhere. Be the one who reminds others that there is a dangerous line they are crossing. Do so with love but remember -love does not condone gossip.

All God wants of His followers is that we love Him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and that we trust His promises and obey His commands. He will then give us wisdom, grace, favour, manpower, finances--everything we need--to accomplish all that He has called us to do.
