A collection of my favorite quotes!
Life isn’t waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain. ~Vivian Greene
In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:6-7 ESV)
There is no grace for your imagination. ~ Elizabeth Elliot
Take one step at a time, every step under Divine warrant and direction. Ever plan for yourself in simple dependence on God. It is nothing less than self-idolatry to conceive that we can carry on even the ordinary matters of the day without his counsel. He loves to be consulted… Consider no circumstances too clear to need his direction. In all thy ways, small as well as great; in all thy concerns, personal or relative, temporal or eternal, let him be supreme. Who of us has not found the unspeakable ‘peace’ of bringing to God matters too minute or individual to be entrusted to the most confidential ear?… If in true poverty of spirit we go every morning to our Lord, as knowing not how to guide ourselves for this day; or eye constantly looking upward for direction, the light will come down. He shall direct thy paths… Let the will be kept in a quiet, subdued, cheerful, readiness, to move, stay, retreat, turn to the right hand or to the left, a the Lord’s bidding; always remembering that is best which is least our own doing, and that a pliable spirit ever secures the needful guidance… No step well prayed over will bring ultimate regret. ~Charles Bridges
