I’m sorry that today’s post is, again, so short. It’s been quite the week.
But first, something that popped into my head this morning:
“My reason for being a Christian is not to make my parents happy. It’s not because it’s all I’ve ever heard. It’s not because I think I’m better than anyone else. It’s not because I blindly accept what others tell me. It is because I have found truth in God’s word. There have been too many ‘coincidences.’ And in nothing else have I found such peace, hope, and love.”
And now, in a snippet-like form, here are some more simple statements.
“If I find in myself a desire in which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.” – C.S. Lewis
“With every storm I face, I find a greater grace that pulls me deeper into Your heart.” – Phil Wickham
“I know my God is good and He has carved out a path for me that’s different than what I would have chosen, but on the other hand, I would not have chosen Him, either, and He came and He sought me. I would not have been a Christian apart from His initiative. So I can trust Him… if He gave me the good gift of salvation, I can trust Him for the rest of my life.” – Carolyn McCulley
“Don’t question in the darkness what God shows you in the light.” – unknown, heard from Michelle Duggar
“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
– Philippians 3:12-14
