Here is a test to find out whether your mission
   on earth is finished: 
         If you are alive, It is not. 
-Richard Bach 

But I do not account my life of any value,
  nor as precious to myself, if only
    I may finish my course, and the ministry
       that I received from the Lord Jesus Christ,
        to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
-Acts 20:24

The different between school and life?
 In school, you are taught a lesson and then given a test.
  In life, you are given a test that teaches you a lesson. 
-Tom Bodett 

This book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth,
  but you shall meditate on it day and night,
   so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. 
For then you will make your way prosperous,
        and then you will have good success.
-Psalm 19:8

Thought for the Day 3/23/2015

The lessons of the past provide
         the path to the future. 

You shall teach God's laws diligently to your children,
  and shall talk of them when you sit in your house,
     and when you walk by the way,
        and when you lie down, and when you rise....
          then take care lest you forget the Lord,
            who brought you out of the land of Egypt,
               out of the house of slavery.
-Deuteronomy 6:7, 12

The tragedy in life does not lie in not reaching your goal.
   The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.
-Benjamin Mays

I have not yet reached my goal, and
        I am not perfect.
             But Christ has taken hold of me.
                 So I keep on running and struggling
                       to take hold of the prize
-Philippians 3:12
