Quotes

Mammon wants you to think, ‘If I just had more money, I could really start helping people and giving more to the kingdom.’ Keep in mind, Jesus never told anyone the answer was more money. Money is not the answer to problems – God is.”

The Blessed Life (Ps. Robert Morris)


True worship is revealed by who we obey, not who we sing to.

Good or God (John Bevere)


Beauty reminds us of an Eden we have never known, but somehow our hearts were created for

Captivating (Stacy Eldredge)


“Can you thank Me for trusting you with this, even if I never tell you why?”

Helen Roseveare

Recapture the Wonder (Ravi Zacharias)


He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

Jim Elliot

Ravi Zacharias (Recapture the Wonder)

Ravi Zacharias (Recapture the Wonder)


I once read somewhere that only God is able to humble us without humiliating us and to exalt us without flattering us. That is what His forgiveness accomplishes.

Ravi Zacharias (Recapture the Wonder)


If you walk by faith and not by sight, you’ll always hear something from God before you see a sign of it.

Steven Furtick. 12 July 2015 


The only way to stand out, is to make content that cannot be ignored

Yuri W. 2015


Being short-sighted means two things; One. I can’t see clearly the path in front of me. Two, I rely completely on Him to walk forward. Even if I stumble, He will immediately pick me up and set my feet on solid ground. He brings my world into focus when I choose to focus on Him.

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

St. Francis of Assisi

You shouldn’t lie till ten. There’s the very prime of the morning gone long before that time. A person who has not done one-half his day’s work by ten o’clock, runs a chance of leaving the other half undone.

Wuthering Heights (Nelly Dean)


The truth is, God doesn’t always move the clouds to show us which way to go. Instead, God asks us to be faithful, to make choices with our lives that honor him. He asks us to get our priorities in order, to turn away from worldly standards of success and achievement and to bend our will to that of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. And as we follow his example, walking in his ways, we begin to think more like him. Paul tells us in Romans 12:2: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

We will make our share of mistakes in life decisions. At times, we will undoubtedly go when we should stay and stay when we should go. But the promise that God gives us is that no matter where we go—to a new state, to a new job, to a new stage of family life—our God goes with us.

Carla Barnhill


You cannot elevate your experience over the authority of scripture in order to be happy. Christianity isn’t about you being happy. It’s not about personal fulfillment. Sacrifice and suffering were integral to the life of Christ. And as Christians we are called to deny ourselves, to take up our crosses and to follow Him.

Matthew Vines


Victory, to me, is about defeating the one main opponent we all have, which is ourselves. The battle, I believe, is not literally always with another dancer, it’s about victory over your insecurities, your bad habits, your laziness, your flaws… Trying to be the best you can be, not the best in a contest. Contests are necessary to gain experience and learn stuff but to me, my dance life has no end.

Joel Tan. Urban Groove Dance Network


Hebrew 11:6 says God rewards those who diligently seek Him in faith. It does not say He rewards those who casually seek Him and wonder in doubt.

John Bevere. Having an Eternal Perspective.


Maybe it’s not too hard to find the words, if I wasn’t so busy taking them for granted.

19th January 2010.


If we shadows have offended,

Think but this and all is mended,

That you have but slumbered here

While these visions did appear,

And this weak and idle theme,

No more yielding but a dream.

Puck. A Midsummer’s Nights Dream.


Of course God knows you’re here; it’s just that some people spend part of their life running from Him and the rest thinking they go unnoticed.

Mitch Albom. The 5 people you meet in Heaven.


Ah, you mock me. But perhaps one day when you’ve awaken from a pleasant slumber to the scent of a warm brioche smothered in marmalade and fresh cream butter you will understand that life is not solely comprised of tasks but tastes.

Leopold. Kate & Leopold (2001).


There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see the world, the more I am dissatisfied with it; and every day conforms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of either merit or sense.

Elizabeth Bennet. Pride and Prejudice.


Sometimes I feel irritated to the point of change. I think that’s the way God intended it.

15th March 2010


If you go ahead and listen carefully, you’ll hear the familiar sounds of no one caring.

Dr. Cox. Scrubs. Season 1 Episode 13.


Satan and his evil angels, then, are defeated foes. They may strive might and main to thwart the work of Christ, but they shall not succeed. They may rock the boat, but cannot sink it. They may recommend evil to a person, but cannot compel anyone to sin. They may threaten to cause a believer to forsake his faith, but are quite unable to pluck anyone from the hand of the Saviour.

Walking with Giants Blog


Sinners sin by definition so for us to think the world should act like the Bible says is wrong.

Ps. Mark Elmendorp


Bad things happen to us because God is actually calling us to a deeper faith, one that trusts Him and chooses to stay with Him even when His love for us includes losses, the relinquishment of dreams and earthly hopes, and painful experiences for which there will be no remedy in this lifetime.

Lydia Brownback


I’m not rich. But I’m satisfied.

Calvin Tay


Independence is not the same as doing things in isolation

Caroline Ho 


The future is scary. But you can’t just run back to the past because it’s familiar. Yes, it’s tempting… but it’s a mistake.

Robin Scherbatsky. How I Met Your Mother. Season 6 Episode 24.


One does not surrender a life in an instant.
That which is lifelong can only be surrendered in a lifetime.

Elisabeth Elliot


You don’t become a great bouncer overnight, it takes at least 12 hours

Tigger. Season 4 Episode 7


To me, choreo is like heavy make up on an ugly face, good foundation and technique is a pretty face that shines even without make up.
