I’m finding my challenge to myself to blog something every day of Lent (except Sundays) to be more difficult than I imagined. To think of something to write everyday that someone would want to read is truly a challenge. My husband just looked at the calendar and said, “Wow, Easter is April 4. You have a lot of blogs left to write!” As if I hadn’t realized that myself.
Well, today, I’m going to cheat a bit and post here some random quotes about God that I have received in my daily Quotemeal from www.heartlight.org. Maybe one of them will be just what someone needed to read today. I know that many days the daily quote is just what I need to hear.
To love is to be vulnerable. — C.S. Lewis
The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you. — Robert Louis Stevenson
The Bible is like a telescope. If a man looks through his telescope, then he sees worlds beyond; but if he looks at his telescope, then he does not see anything but that. The Bible is a thing to be looked through, to see that which is beyond. — Phillips Brooks
One of Satan’s ploys to retard spiritual productivity is getting Christians preoccupied with humanistic philosophy and other bankrupt substitutes for God’s truth. — John MacArthur
Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God. — Corrie ten Boom
God’s promises are like the stars: the darker the night, the brighter they shine. — David Nicholas
One of the ways that our faith expresses itself is by our ability to be still, to be present, and not to panic or lose perspective. God still does his best work in the most difficult of circumstances. — Tim Hansel
There is only one relationship that matters, and that is your personal relationship to a personal Redeemer and Lord. Let everything else go, but maintain that at all cost, and God will fulfill His purpose through your life. (This includes meeting the needs of your heart.) One individual life may be of priceless value to God’s purposes, and yours may be that life. — Oswald Chambers
God does not discipline us to subdue us, but to condition us for a life of usefulness and blessedness. — Billy Graham
Without the work of the cross we would be quite helpless. The cross enables us to come out free from under the heaviest and most powerful mental bondage. Not all the power of Satan, or sin, or habit can hold us captive any longer. — Tom Marshall
I believe there is nothing lovelier, deeper, more sympathetic, and more perfect than the Savior; there is in the world only one figure of absolute beauty: Christ. — Fyodor Dostoevsky
So I’m still planning to actually write something for the 18 remaining days of Lent. I’ve really enjoyed blogging every day.
