Odds and Ends!!!

Today, I want to share with y'all some quotes and a few scriptures that have had a very special meaning in our lives this past year.

HOPE you read something that speaks to your heart, too!


Prayer and truth are our primary weapons in spiritual warfare.

Psalm 25:3
  No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.

Never listen to the Arch nemesis (Satan). 
Don't allow him to put chains back on you.  
The Hero (Jesus) died to set you free.

As to sharing the gospel, I try not to make a nuisance of myself, 
but when joy bubbles up, it has to go somewhere.

~~~Liz Curtis Higgs~~~ 

Our Savior kneels down and gazes upon the darkest acts of our lives.  But, rather than recoil in horror, He reaches out in kindness and says,
"I can clean that if you want!"

~~~Max Lucado~~~

If we're not careful, we can leave our place of prayer and never make the connection between our prayers and the events of our day!!!

~~~Henry Blackaby~~~

The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of CHRISTian, but the fact that I am a CHRISTian makes me a different kind of woman.
~~~Elisabeth Elliot~~~
Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, 
small minds discuss people.


~~~ Hyman Rickover~~~
God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains:
It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world 


~~~C. S. Lewis~~~
Isaiah 46:4 NLT
“I will be your God throughout your lifetime— until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.”

Often our thoughts run to "What do they think of me?" when what we should be concerned with is "What do they think of Him?"
~~Priscilla Shirer~~~

We can't always prove to others that we've received a word from God....that He has spoken to us. All we can do is obey and allow the results to testify to God's work!

(paraphrased from a quote by Henry Blackaby)

HOPE is more than a word; it's a state of being. 

It's a firm belief that God will come through.

Life brings rain....

HOPE turns every drop into the power to bloom like never before.


~~~Holley Gerth~~~

Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
