God isn’t a talent scout looking for someone
who is “good enough” or “strong enough.”
He is looking for someone with a heart set on Him,
and He will do the rest.
The purpose of prayer is not primarily to move the hand of God
but rather to hold the hand of God.
Happiness depends on what happens; joy does not.
Living in the constant awareness of God’s presence
brings peace, security, and guidance throughout life.
Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely.
Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly.
Though we may feel lost and without compass,
God’s love encompasses us completely.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Peace does not mean the end of all our striving
Joy does not mean the drying of our tears.
Peace is the power that comes to souls arriving
Up to the light where God Himself appears.
Geoffrey A. S. Kennedy
Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many;
not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
What the heart gives away is never gone.
It is kept in the hearts of others.
Robin St. John
Hearts on earth say in the course of a joyful experience,
“I don’t want this ever to end.” But it invariably does.
The hearts of those in heaven say,
“I want this to go on forever.” And it will.
There is no better news than this.
J. I. Packer
Get into the habit of dealing with God about everything.
Unless in the first waking moment of the day you learn to
fling the door wide back and let God in, you will work on a wrong level all day;
but swing the door wide open and pray to your Father in secret,
and every public thing will be stamped with the presence of God.
Trust God's love. His perfect love.
Don't fear he will discover your past. He already has.
Don't fear disappointing him in the future.
He can show you the chapter in which you will.
With perfect knowledge of the past and perfect vision of the future,
he loves you perfectly in spite of both.
Let Jesus be in your heart,
eternity in your spirit,
the world under your feet,
the will of God in your actions.
And let the love of God shine forth from you.
