Repentance, far above all else, is a turning away from wrong ideas about God and about yourself and coming into an exchange of receiving by the Spirit of Truth, the mind of God about Himself, in you. It's not being ashamed of yourself but exchanging yourself. It's not a one time event but an on-going change from glory to glory. Repentance is not just changing your mind but losing your mind and gaining His.

It is said that sheep may get lost simply by nibbling away at the grass and never looking up. That can be true for any of us. We can focus so much on what is immediately before us that we fail to see life in larger perspective.

Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, and takes off the relish of spiritual things - that to you is sin.

To reach your potential, you must know where you want to go and where you currently are. Without both of these pieces of information, you’re liable to get lost.

John Bunyan

If thou wouldest be a good neighbour, take heed of thy tongue...That thou with it give no offensive language to thy neighbour, to the provoking of him to anger. Bear much, put up wrongs, and say little...And as thou shouldest take heed that thou be not the original of contention and anger, so also take heed that thou be not an instrument to beget it between parties, by tale-bearing and a gossiping spirit: "He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears."

Grace that does not lead us to becoming like Jesus is not grace. It's something else and definitely not Biblical grace.

I would rev up my Christian to do list with all manner of serving, blessing and giving others that kind of love I was so desperate to have boomerang back on me. Those are all good things. Fabulous activities. Biblical instructions. But when given from a heart whose real motivation is what I'm hoping I'll get in return is not really love at all. That's not the answer. Giving with strings of secret expectations attached is the greatest invitation to heartbreak. That's not love. That's manipulation, and it's also unrealistic. Only audiences are trained to applaud performances. People in everyday life can sniff out the neediness of a performer trying to earn love. Their instinct isn't to clap, but rather to be repulsed by the fakeness of it all, and walk away. No soul can soar to the place of living loved when it's a performance based endeavour. Living loved is sourced in your quiet daily surrender to the One who made you.

Having faith, beliefs, and convictions is a great thing, but your life is measured by the actions you take based upon them.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

I believe that God both wills and is able to bring good out of everything, even the worst. For this He needs people who are prepared to allow everything to be served for the best. I believe that in every crisis God wants to provide us with as much power of resistance as we need. But God never gives it in advance so that we will entrust ourselves. I believe that even our mistakes and wrongdoing are not fruitless and that it is no more difficult for God to cope with them than with our presumed good deeds. I believe that God is no "timeless fate" but, rather, that he waits upon and responds to our sincere prayer and responsible deeds.
