Reading the Bible without meditating on it is like trying to eat without swallowing. Anonymous

When some friend has proved untrue, betrayed your simple trust.
Used you for his selfish ends, and trampled in the dust.
The past with all its memories, and all its sacred ties.
The light is blotted from the sky, for something in you dies.
Bless your false and faithless friend, just smile and pass along.
God must be the judge of it, He knows the right from wrong.
Life is short, don't waste the hours, by brooding on the past.
His great laws are good and just, truth conquers at the last.
Red and deep our wounds may be, but after all the pain.
God's own finger touches us, and we are healed again.
With faith restored, and trust renewed, we look towards the stars.
The world will see the smiles we have, but God will see the scars. Anonymous

I gave them to Him,
All the things I'd valued so
Until I stood there empty-handed.
Every glittering toy did go.
And I walked earth's lonely highways
In my rags and poverty;
Till I heard His voice entreating,
"Lift your empty hands to Me."
Empty hands I lifted to Him,
And He filled them with a store
Of His own transcendent riches
Till my hands could hold no more.
And at last I comprehended,
With my mind so slow and dull,
That God could not pour His riches
Into hands already full. Anonymous

Prayer has divided seas, rolled up flowing rivers, made flinty rocks gush into fountains, quenched flames of fire, muzzled lions, disarmed vipers and poisons, marshaled the stars against the wicked, stopped the course of the moon, arrested the rapid sun in its great race, burst open iron gates, conquered the strongest devils, commanded legions of angels down from heaven. Prayer has bridled and changed the raging passions of man, and routed and destroyed vast armies of proud, daring atheists. Prayer has brought one man from the bottom of the sea, and carried another in a chariot of fire to heaven; what has prayer not done!

Breath in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy. Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy. Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy. Augustine

For daily need there is daily grace; for sudden need, sudden grace, and for overwhelming need, overwhelming grace. John Blanchard

Youth is like spring, an over-praised season more remarkable for biting winds that genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits. Samuel Butler

If a sudden jar can cause me to speak an impatient, unloving word, then I know nothing of Calvary love. For a cup brimful of sweet water cannot spill even one drop of bitter water, however suddenly jolted. Amy Carmichael

We all know people who have been made much meaner and more irritable and more intolerable to live with by suffering: it is not right to say that all suffering perfects. It only perfects one type of person...... the one who accepts the call of God in Christ Jesus. Oswald Chambers

Life is the time of probation, and while it lasts the vilest of the vile is within the reach of mercy.  It is only in eternity that the state is irreversibly fixed, and where that which was guilty must be guilty still. Adam Clark

A thousand things enter into God's calculation which do not enter into man's reckoning. The clock of heaven does not measure days and years; it measures events and necessities.  J.D. Davies

God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to.  Elisabeth Elliot

God hangs the great things of eternity upon the small wires of times and seasons in this world: that may be done, or neglected in a day, which may be the groundwork of joy or sorrow to all eternity. J. Flavel

If your heart takes more pleasure in reading novels, or watching TV, or going to the movies, or talking to friends, rather than just sitting alone with God and embracing Him, sharing His cares and His burdens, weeping and rejoicing with Him, then how are you going to handle forever and ever in His presence... ? You'd be bored to tears in heaven, if you're not ecstatic about God now! Keith Green

We can do nothing, we say sometimes, 'we can only pray'. That, we feel, is a terribly precarious second-best. So long as we can fuss and work and rush about, so long as we can lend a hand, we have some hope; but if we have to fall back upon God -- ah, then things must be critical indeed! Arthur John (A. J.) Gossip

The word of God hidden in the heart is a stubborn voice to suppress. Billy Graham

The Christian life is not a constant high. I have my moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes, and say, "O God, forgive me," or "Help me." Billy Graham
