God's ultimate goal for your life on Earth is not comfort but character development. He wants you to grow up spiritually and become like Christ. Becoming like

is all about transforming your character, not your personality.

Mother Teresa Quotes |
Spiritual growth is not like fast food. It takes time for its roots to grow,
and that requires us to be receptive and patient.
Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
Excellence encourages one about life generally; it shows the spiritual
wealth of the world.
Biblical convictions are essential for spiritual growth and maturity.

convictions about major issues (what is right and what is wrong).

best preparation to face the challenges of life.
David Packer, Encouragement
Prayers are personal. No third party can ever express what's on your heart
or write in your unique lingo or dialect, but when it seems the whole world
is attempting to make this holy Advent and Christmastide one huge
commercial, with very little spiritual content, don't join in - talk to your
heavenly Father about it.

the secular, the sacred and the profane, and between humanity and God.

necessary ingredients to nurture our spiritual growth on our Lenten journey

Easter Poems |
No matter what you want to do in a room, you have to first turn
on the light, or you can't see to do anything else. Christmas
contains many spiritual truths, but it will be hard to grasp the others
unless we grasp this one first. That is, that the world is a dark place,
and we will never find our way or see reality unless Jesus is our Light.

What joy the glorious music of Christmas brings to our celebration
of Christ's birth! No other season offers such an abundance of

The trouble isn't so much that we don't know enough,
but it's as if we aren't good enough. The trouble isn't so much
that our scientific genius lags behind, but our moral genius lags behind.
The great problem facing modern man is that, that the means
by which we live, have outdistanced the spiritual ends for which we live.

at the grace of God.

as the key component of life. As physical life is dependent on the cell,
so grace is the essence of spiritual life.
Gordon Kainer, God's Grace: A Gift Freely Given
Poems about Faith |
The Bible lays considerable emphasis on togetherness,
which suggests that there are many spiritual benefits of teamwork.

dependent on God, but also to be interdependent with one another.
Gordon Jones, Teamwork: How to Build Relationships
Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage,
empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability,
and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper
and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.
Brené Brown, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

goes terribly wrong) into a great opportunity for moral "redemption"
and spiritual awareness.
Gianni Ferrario, Adolfo Panfili, Laugh Love Live
The spiritual life is lived between two polarities: our sin and God's grace.
Poems about Life |
We have never been taught how to relax, how to take care
of ourselves in a positive, nurturing way (not just going on a vacation
or out for an expensive dinner). Twenty minutes of deep relaxation
a day will aid your mental growth, improve your physical health
and emotional stability, and possibly even increase your spiritual awareness.
L. John Mason, Guide to Stress Reduction, 2nd Ed.

foremost you're not here as a human being only. You're a spiritual being
having a human experience.
