“If Jesus is not Lord of all then He is not Lord at all.”
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
— Jesus Christ
“When we are under the weight of stress & hardship, we may wonder whether our LORD, Who engineered us, has miscalculated our personal ‘tensile strength’.
We are certain that we are going to collapse under the weight of trials, but our Designer knows exactly what we can handle by His grace. He knows our limits and will never permit more than we can bear.
God may send a load, but not an overload.”
Is it better to say too much? or to say too little?
None of the above. Sometimes it’s better to just say what you need to say.
“So who even comes close to being like God?
To whom or what can you compare him?
‘So—who is like me?
Who holds a candle to me?’ says The Holy.
Look at the night skies:
Who do you think made all this?
Who marches this army of stars out each night,
counts them off, calls each by name
—so magnificent! so powerful!—
and never overlooks a single one?”
—Isaiah 40:18, 25-26 (MSG)
“Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.”
— Garth Brooks
“Be thankful, whatever the circumstances may be…” — 1 Thessalonians 5:18
A heavy heart is what almost everybody in this world carries everyday — a heart that is a burden to ourselves and to our relationship with God. Yet that same heart is God’s home.
A heavy heart lifted by God and made His.
To love and hold. To care and cherish.
—Isaiah 57:15 (NLT)
“Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.”
—Ephesians 3:17 (NLT)
“Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is. The way you deal with it is what makes the difference.”
“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”
—Matthew 6:34 (MSG)
I was a sinner and is still a sinner.
I was a doubter and is still one.
I was self-centered and is still selfish.
I was not perfect and is still imperfect.
But there was and is a perfect being.
Never was a sinner and never is a sinner.
Not once was a doubter but is always a believer.
Never was He self- centered but is truly selfless.
That was and is our Savior, Jesus Christ.
He was once dead but He is now alive in our hearts.
He was molding us and is still molding us into perfection.
He was here and is now coming back.
There is no difference between is and was, but the people. People change through time. Even then, we can never change the fact that we sin. We sin and Jesus saved us — saved by grace. He will come again and save us all, those who truly believe in Him.“…let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:22-23
