God is the love of my life
"When God closes one door, he usually opens a window"
How do you make God laugh? ...Make a plan."-Chet from Kicking and Screaming (1995)
"People put themselves in safe situations and think 'if God shows up - good; if not - than ok' but the only way you will see God and know it is him is when you put your neck out so far that you will be screwed if he doesn't show up - then you know you've seen him." - sandor.
"God loves us as we are. But He also loves us to much to leave as we are."
"A woman’s heart should be so close to the Lord that a man has to search after Him just to find her." And vice versa
"if i find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that i was made for another world."
"Disturb us Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves when are dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, when we arrive safely because we have sailed too close to the shore.
Disturb us Lord, when with the abundance of things we posses, we have lost our thirst for the waters of life. Haven fallen in love with life we have ceased to dream of eternity; and in our efforts to build a new earth, we have allowed our vision of a new heaven to dim.
Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas where storms will shore your mastery, where loosing sighting of land we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes and to push into the future in strength, courage, hope, and love."
-Sir Francis Drake
Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24
