I decided to share some of my favorite quotes and explain why I like them, so here they are…
Living radical isn’t about where you live; it’s about how you love –Ann Voscamp
When I feel like I am failing because I haven’t gone to the ends of the earth to tell others about Jesus, God reminds me it is not about going somewhere but about loving the ones right in front of me with His love.
God gets glory when grace gets served –Brandon Baldwin
When I am tempted to believe the bigger influence, the more God is glorified, I can reflect that God’s glory is manifest in not only the earthquake and thunder, but also the quiet whisper.
Grace is not a tiny target; it is an endless pool –Holly Gerth
I don’t have to have the right answer or make the right decision because living the life He called me to is not like balancing on a tightrope. His grace is so much larger than my mistakes or lack of understanding.
Rest is never found in the quest to understand it all –Paul David Tripp
Sometimes I get so distracted by trying to figure out what God wants me to do or learn through this circumstance that I lose sight of him. If I am close to Jesus, I don’t need to know where we are going because He is leading me step by step.
Feelings are like goldfish. Their growth depends on the size of the pond and how much they are fed -John Thomas
This reminds me that my feelings are not my identity nor do not control my destiny. Even when I am feeling depressed or anxious, I can soak in God’s truth instead of how crummy I feel.
Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit –Zechariah 4:6
My weakness cannot prevent God’s Spirit from accomplishing all He intends to do. I’m so grateful, the final outcome never depends on me.
