God loves each one of us as if there were only one of us.
“Faith is to believe what you do not see;
the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.”
God's providence is not in baskets lowered from the sky,
but through the hands and hearts of those who love him.
The lad without food and without shoes made the proper answer
to the cruel-minded woman who asked,
"But if God loved you wouldn't he send you food and shoes?"
The boy replied, "God told someone, but he forgot."
Every time we pray, our horizon is altered,
our attitude to things is altered,
not sometimes but every time,
and the amazing thing is that we don't pray more.
We must allow the Word of God to confront us,
to disturb our security,
to undermine our complacency and
to overthrow our patterns of thought and behavior.
Deny your weakness, and you will never realize God's strength in you.
Joni Eareckson Tada
God is looking for those with whom He can do the impossible -
what a pity that we plan only the things that we can do by ourselves.
A. W. Tozer
Contentment is not by addition but by subtraction:
seeking to add a thing will not bring contentment.
Instead, subtracting from your desires until you are satisfied
only with Christ brings contentment.
If you have the Spirit without the Word, you blow up.
If you have the Word without the Spirit, you dry up.
If you have both the Word and the Spirit, you grow up.
When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark,
you don't throw away the ticket and jump off.
You sit still and trust the engineer.
Corrie Ten Boom
A smile costs nothing but gives much.
It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,
and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,
fosters goodwill in business and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
and is nature’s best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
