Faith is not to get you out of a hard place,
BUT to change your heart in the hard place.
~ David Wilkerson
Through the mind by faith we confidently
await the fulfillment of our righteous hope,
for in union with the Messiah Jesus neither
circumcision nor uncircumcision matters.
What matters is faith expressed through love.~ Galatians 5:5-6 (ISV)

Lives, like money, are spent.
What are you buying with yours?
~ Roy H. Williams

for it like hidden treasure, then you will

The gospel spreads as a seed,
not a potted plant.
Jesus said another parable to them,
"The Kingdom of God is like a grain
of mustard seed that a man took and
sowed in his field. It is the smallest of
all seeds, BUT when it has grown it is
larger than all the garden plants....".~ Matthew 13:32-32

Life without God is like an
unsharpened pencil -
it has no point.
~ Jim Gentil
For whoever would save his life will lose it,
BUT whoever loses his life for my sake and
the gospel's will save it. For what does it
profit a man to gain the whole world and
forfeit his life? For what can a man
give in return for his life?
~ Mark 8:36-37

and thinking - just like you are in a movie
and everything is being recorded - even
your thoughts! Because it is!
God is recording everything we do!

what they had done.
