Praying: a platform to impress others?

“Prayer is a private act of devotion, not a public demonstration of piety.” – Charles Swindoll

“Pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will repay you.”

– Matthew 6:6

Connect to our Father with words from our hearts privately,

not with those uncompassionate and excessive words repeated publicly.

No Reservations…

“Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation.” Elton Trueblood

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” – Proverbs 3:5-6

“Perfect trust is resting all one’s weight on something else, not on self. It’s like resting on crutches to hold you up when you twist an ankle. You lean on them as your strength.” – Charles Swindoll

Don’t reserve your trust in the Lord. Remember, you are trusting GOD.

The Secret of Responsible Trust

“God has trusted each of us with our own set of unfair circumstances and unexplained experiences to deal with. Can we still trust in Him even if He never tells us why?”

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.” 

— Proverbs 3:5-6, NLT

“The secret to responsible trust is acceptance. Acceptance is taking from God’s hand absolutely anything He gives, looking into His face in trust and thanksgiving, knowing that the confinement of the hedge we’re in is good and for His glory.”

– Charles Swindoll

What makes you beautiful

External beauty is ephemeral. Internal beauty is eternal. The former is attractive to the world;

the latter is pleasing to God.”

Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”
– Proverbs 31: 30 

“Without question, this is any woman’s most powerful quality —- True Character.

– Charles Swindoll
