No one ever said it was easy being an Christian.

    I love these. #5 is one of particular enjoyment. Much the same as, “God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called.” Amen. Thank you for sharing!

    These are really thought provoking quotes. It’s really difficult to start a blog/website dedicated to faith and I know that first hand. Keep up the good work.

    Forgiveness is my anchor and my understanding of Jesus is my guide for finding, receiving, and giving forgiveness. There are times when I struggle deeply with this concept but my belief in the absolute forgiveness of God as expressed and exemplified by Jesus is my encouragement.

    “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” — Jesus (John 3:16)
    This is one of my favourites. Will perhaps add to another post.

    We can be TIRED—WEARY, and EMOTIONALLY DISTRAUGHT, but after spending time ALONE with God, we will find HE INJECTS into our bodies ENERGY, POWER, AND STRENGTH!! One thing for sure, it is WRONG to look for PEACE in people or circumstances!! There is only ONE PLACE to find TRUE REST AND PEACE and that is in the SWEET PASTURES OF HIS GRACE, that is MANIFESTED by GOD’s presence in our lives!! Even after you have TRIED your best, dont LOSE HOPE!! Just trust that God’s plans are better than our DREAMS!! When we are TIRED and cant figure things out, please God, help us to SEE your part in the EQUATION of our lives!! Help us to know, God, that where our STRENGTH ENDS, YOUR STRENGTH BEGINS!! Help us to look for you, God, for our very NEXT STEP and to WAIT in CALM EXPECTATION!!! 😊
