When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark,
you don't throw away the ticket and jump off.

You sit and trust the engineer.

~Corrie Ten Boom

It is absurd for the Evolutionists to complain that it is unthinkable
for an admittedly unthinkable God to make everything out of nothing,
and then pretend that it is more thinkable that nothing should turn itself into everything.

~G.K.Chesterton

The scepter will not depart from Judah,
nor the ruler's staff from his descendants,
until the coming of the one to whom it belongs,
the one whom all nations will honor.

~Genesis 49:10 (New Living Translation)

The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites.

You must listen to him.


~Deuteronomy 18:15 (NIV)

Look! The virgin will concieve a child!
She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means 'God is with us').

~Isaiah 7:14


What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

If God had a face what would it look like
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like heaven and in Jesus and the saints and all the prophets

~as recorded by Joan Osbourne

The way to Christmas lies through an ancient gate....It is a little gate, child-high, child-wide, and there is a password: "Peace on earth to men of good will." May you, this Christmas, become as a little child again and enter into His kingdom.

~Angelo Patri

The Christian task is not to provide easy answers to every perplexing question;
it is to make us ever more aware of a gracious and wonderful mystery, the mystery of God.
Rather than an object of our knowledge, God should be the cause of our wonder (Psalms 8:1).

~Barry L.Callen

The World Is Not a Stage

1 "Be especially careful when you are trying to be good so that you don't make a performance out of it. It might be good theater, but the God who made you won't be applauding.

2-4"When you do something for someone else, don't call attention to yourself. You've seen them in action, I'm sure—'playactors' I call them— treating prayer meeting and street corner alike as a stage, acting compassionate as long as someone is watching, playing to the crowds. They get applause, true, but that's all they get. When you help someone out, don't think about how it looks. Just do it—quietly and unobtrusively. That is the way your God, who conceived you in love, working behind the scenes, helps you out.


Pray with Simplicity

5"And when you come before God, don't turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show out of their prayers, hoping for stardom! Do you think God sits in a box seat?


6"Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won't be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.

7-13"The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They're full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don't fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply.

~Matthew 6 (The Message)

REALLY like the Ten Boom quote. Very relevant for a situation I'm going through right now. Thanks.

Show me the place help me roll away the stone
Show me the place I can't move this thing alone
Show me the place where the Word became a man
Show me the place where the suffering began

~Leonard Cohen, from the album Old Ideas

I discovered later, and I'm still discovering right up to this moment, that is it only by living completely in this world that one learns to have faith. By this-worldliness I mean living unreservedly in life's duties, problems, successes and failures. In so doing we throw ourselves completely into the arms of God, taking seriously, not our own sufferings, but those of God in the world. That, I think, is faith.

~Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Happy is he who has faith in God, for in the end he will overcome all the difficulties of life, albeit not without
trouble and sorrow. One cannot do better than hold onto the thought of God through everything, under all
circumstances, at all places, at all times, and try to aquire more knowledge about Him, which one can do from the
Bible as well as from all other things.

~Vincent van Gogh, Letters to Theo

Earth's crammed with heaven, and every common bush afire with God, but only he who sees takes off his shoes.
