Christian Quotes about Life
"But even with the inspiration of others, it's understandable that we
sometimes think the world's problems are so big that we can do
little to help. On our own, we cannot end wars or wipe out injustice,
but the cumulative impact of thousands of small acts of goodness
can be bigger than we imagine."
Queen Elizabeth II, Christmas Message 2016
Through faith we understand
The things we cannot know -
The hidden pattern God has planned
And why each thread is so.
E. Margaret Clarkson, Through Faith

help yourself move forward.
The Easter message not only has to be believed, it has to be felt,
for the mind alone cannot grasp it all.
Steve Pease, The Easter Story
What you see and what you hear depends a great deal on where you
are standing. It also depends on what sort of person you are.

Encouraging Bible Verses
Behold! The Lord is risen! Who would have thought it true?
Those great, far fetched predictions! Is that what God can do?
Greta Zwaan, He Did It
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Author Unknown, Be Thankful
"The Bible also tells one story with consistency. It was written over
a 1,500-year time span, on three continents,
and by 40 authors people from every walk of life, like kings, shepherds,
fishermen, and tax collectors.
Yet the Bible tells one story from beginning to end: God's love and salvation
for man and how he came
into this world through Jesus Christ. It's an amazing example of the power
of God to write that story for our lives."
"God wants to empower you to make the profound decisions necessary
as you near the end of life. Continue to live life with an open hand because
God has a wonderful way of interrupting the lives of those who remain open
to Him. He hasn't quit using you yet."
Martha Evans Sparks, Strength for Today

upon in helping each one of us through any type of crisis if we will trust Him."
Charles Stanley, Finding Peace
Sunday, a day of rest declared by God for our benefit; appreciate the day and rest.
"By the time I embraced my vocational identity as a pastor I had realized
that pastors and poets have
a lot in common: we use words with reverence, get immersed
in everyday particulars, are wary of abstractions, spy out the glories
of the commonplace, warn of illusions,
attend to the subtle interconnections between rhythm and meaning and spirit."
Eugene H. Peterson, Holy Luck
"There will always be someone around the corner ready to steal our joy
or betray us like Judas, but like Jesus,
we know that we do not have to worry because He has
endured that for us as well."
Ralene Berry, As I Encourage You, I Encourage Myself
May the birth of Christ the Saviour renew hearts, awaken the desire to build a future of greater fraternity and solidarity, and bring joy and hope to everyone. Happy Christmas!
Pope Francis, Christmas message for 2017
When we give joyfully to the work of the Lord, we discover for ourselves
what Jesus meant when He said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." (Acts 20:35). Who wouldn’t want to be blessed by God?

But God’s grace is also exhibited when we
humbly bow before Christ in repentance and faith,
for then we find forgiveness. Thank God for His
grace, for without it we would have no hope!

we'll learn to trust, rest, and wait on Him

and ever will become is not ours to possess, and it results in sharing
what we've been given with others
for the advancement of the kingdom and the glory of God."
Chris Willard, Contagious Generosity
"The Old Testament is the best commentary on the New Testament ever
written. There we learn why Jesus had to come, why He taught what
He did, and why He worked miracles."
Dr. Stephen Lennox, God With Us

witnesses to God's power to bring you out of trouble."
Scott Gordon, Tough Times Cannot Last Forever
"Offering a small token in the form of a sympathy gift can be a useful way to express your caring, helping to brighten a dark time for someone who is grieving.
Small gifts whether in the form of a card or other token can be a useful vehicle for letting them know that they remain in your thoughts and prayers, and a helpful means
for you to stay in touch and connected during the time that they are hurting."
Michelle Pommells, The Etiquette of Sympathy

existence and abandon yourself to the high adventure of following God.
John Ortberg, If You Want to Walk on Water, You've Got to Get Out of the Boat
