Inspired to love...

Teacuppink
 

But just as you abound in everything, in faith and utterance and knowledge and in all earnestness and in the love we inspired in you, see that you abound in this gracious work also.

 8I am not speaking this as a command, but as proving through the earnestness of others the sincerity of your love also.

 9For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich.

2 Corinthians 8:7-9

Inspiring others to love....hmmmmmm.

 


A reason to rejoice...

Tulipback

3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

 4to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,

 5who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

 6In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials,

 7so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

 8and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,  

1 Peter 1:3-8

 


When morning dawns...

"God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved;

God will help her when morning dawns." Psalm 46:5

 

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do." 
— Eleanor Roosevelt


Refuge

TNbridgesunset1

(Tennessee sunset)

Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your saviour, your guide? If He is, you don't need to search any further for security.

Elizabeth Elliott


A spring of truth...

NMskyclouds1-1 

 "Yes, it is a press, certainly, but a press from which shall flow in inexhaustible streams, the most abundant and most marvelous liquor
that has ever flowed to relieve the thirst of men!
Through it , God will spread His Word.
A spring of truth shall flow from it:
like a new star it shall scatter the darkness of ignorance,
and cause a light heretofore unknown to shine amongst men."
