Great quotes from friends and other resources
“He who lives by the approval of others will also die by the absence of the same.”
"Do you believe that God would send men out to preach the gospel to every creature
unless he wanted every creature to be saved?
Do you believe He would tell them to preach it to people
without giving people the power to accept it?
Do you believe the God of heaven is mocking men by offering them his gospel
and not giving them the power to take hold of it?
Do you believe He will not give men power to accept this salvation as a gift?
Man might do that, but God never mocks men.
And when he says
'Preach the gospel to every creature,'
every creature can be saved
if he will."
Do you believe? Then what are you waiting for.
Bam Bam Spradling
"Suffering is like a pile of rocks. You can choose to carry the load,
throw them at someone, just let it lay there,
or you can build an altar."
"People are often unreasonable and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway."
"Life is not the way it's supposed to be.. It's the way it is.
The way we cope with it is what makes the difference."
"There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.
You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good.
So love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't.
Life is too short to be anything but happy.
Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."
Jose' M. Harris
(boy does this quote get a lot of hits!)
"You are not defined by your life stories.
You are defined by the maker of the ENTIRE UNIVERSE!
He just uses the stories of your life so that others might see Him glorified!!"
Christi Hunt Short
Motivation, inspiration, encouragement, kindness are a gift anyone can offer.
Why do we refrain from speaking grace to one another?
Be generous, lavish & extravagant with the voice you've been given.
The power of life & death are in the tongue.
With all sincerity speak words of kindness that breathe life the hearer.
Words that fall gentle as silk & satin, chiffon, chasmere & angora.
Helen Elizabeth Phillips
"God's love for me is not defined by how many times He has spoken to me.
His love was defined once and for all on an old wooden cross.
Love reaching and touching beyond the power of words."
Joy Dale Brown
"The difference between believing in Jesus and being born again is
like believing in a parachute, and putting one on.
The difference will be seen when you jump.
See Romans 13:14"
Karen Renee Garber
"Although all people desire to meet another's expectations, we fail.
The job of Messiah has been taken and trust me, I don't want it.
When we have done all the Father has required, let it go.
Cast your cares on Him, for Jesus cares for you!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus!"
Karen Renee Garber
"Disappointment is to the soul what cold water is to burning metal;
it strengthens, tempers, intensifies, but never destroys it.
Success lives right around the corner from disappointment.
Perspective can turn disappointment into success!
Accept your blessings today and see them for what they are."
