in your head. Raise the rent and kick them out.

an impression as one deed.
~ Hendrik Ibsen
If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking
in daily food, and one of you says to them, "Go in
peace, be warmed and filled," without giving them
the things needed for the body, what good is that?

Friday Tale: A Somebody with God
How many times have we had to reach
the end of our own resources before we
remembered to trust in God, the one
steadfast resource of our lives? We're all
in need of a spiritual exodus day by day.
When our faith causes difficulties, our
first response is to fall back on our
familiar resources, people, things, self
and only when these do not help can we
truly lean only upon God for our needs.
Dwight Moody once said that Moses spent
forty years in the king's palace thinking that
he was somebody; then he lived forty years in the
wilderness finding out that without God he was a nobody;
finally, he spent forty more years discovering how a
nobody with God can be a somebody. "And he was right.
When Moses and the people found out they were
nobodies without the resource of God,
that's when the Exodus began."
~ Joel C. Gregory
For the Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands.
He knows your going through this great wilderness.
These forty years the Lord your God has been with you.
You have lacked nothing. ....He led his people out like sheep
and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.~ Deuteronomy 2:7 with Psalm 72:52

If my life is fruitless, it doesn't matter
who praises me, and if my life is fruitful,

So walk in a manner worth of the Lord,
fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in
every good work and increasing in
the knowledge of God.~ Colossians 1:10

Looking back, my life so far seems
like one long obstacle course,
with me as its chief obstacle.
~ Jack Paar
Wretched man that I am! Who will
deliver me from this body of death?
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ
our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law
of God with my mind, but with my flesh
I serve the law of sin.~ Romans 7:24-25

We do not receive wisdom, we must
discover it for our selves, after a
journey through the wilderness
which no on else can make for us....
~ Marcel Proust
Blessed is the one who finds wisdom
and the one who gets understanding,
for the gain from her is better
than gain from silver and
her profit better than gold.~ Proverbs 3:13-

There are two ways you can get through pain.
You can let it destroy you,
or you can use it as fuel to drive you:
to dream bigger, to work harder.
~ Taylor Swift
They returned to Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch,
strengthening the disciples encouraging them
to continue in the faith, and saying that
through many tribulations we must enter
the Kingdom of God.

than worry if I have an umbrella
for the rest of my life.

let the earth cause them both to sprout;
I the Lord have created it.
