Buried under the biggest burden is a good place to find an even bigger blessing. --Janette Oke

Weave the unveiling fabric of God's Word through your heart and mind. It will hold strong, even if the rest of life unravels. --Gigi Graham Tchividjian

There is hardly ever complete silence in the soul. God is whispering to us well-nigh incessantly. Whenever the sounds of the world die out in the soul, or sink low, then we hear the whisperings of God. --F. W. Faber

When we have done all we can, we must still wait for God to accomplish His purposes. As we wait, we can fix our eyes on Jesus as a companion who empathizes with our suffering and a Savior who is working behind the scenes. Difficult circumstances seem to increase our ability to experience intimacy with Christ. --Ruthann Ridley

God has a course mapped out for your life, and all the inadequacies in the world will not change His mind. He will be with you every step of the way. And though it may take time, He has a celebration planned for when you cross over the "Red Seas" of your life. --Charles Stanley

He commonly brings His help in our greatest extremity, and that His finger may plainly appear in our deliverance. And this method He chooses that we may not trust upon anything that we see or feel, as we are always apt to do, but only His bare Word, which we may depend upon in every state. --A. H. Von Bogatzky

If you feel stuck, bring your whole self to Christ, not just the problem, but you. Ask God to change your heart. Commit yourself to pray to that end. It's God's heart to give good gifts to His children. --Sheila Walsh

Even in the winter, even in the midst of the storm, the sun is still there. Somewhere, up above the clouds, it still shines and warms and pulls at the life buried deep inside the brown branches and frozen earth. The sun is there! Spring will come! The clouds cannot stay forever. --Gloria Gaither

We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul
in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the
sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills
that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit
is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will
break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.
--Amy Carmichael

God often takes a course for accomplishing His purposes directly contrary to what our narrow views would prescribe. He brings a death upon our feelings, wishes, and prospects when He is about to give us the desire of our hearts. --John Newton

God may be in the process of pruning something out of your life at this very moment. If this is the case, don't fight it. Instead, welcome it, for His pruning will make you more fruitful and bring greater glory to the Father. --Rick Yohn

The brightest crowns that are worn in heaven have been tried, smelted, polished, and glorified through the furnace of tribulation. --E. H. Chapin

O God, you who have prepared a place for my soul, prepare my soul for that place; prepare it with holiness; prepare it with desire; and even while it remains on earth, let it dwell in heaven with you; seeing the beauty of your face and the glory of your saints, now and forevermore. --Joseph Hall

There is no situation so chaotic that God cannot from that situation create something that is surpassingly good. He did it at creation. He did it at the cross. He is doing it today. --H. C. G. Moule

There is not a spider hanging on the king's wall that does not have its errand; there is not a nettle that grows in the corner of the churchyard that does not have its purpose; there is not a single insect fluttering in the breeze that does not accomplish some divine decree; and I will never have it that God created any man, especially any Christian man, to be a blank and to be a nothing. He made you for an end. Find out what that end is. Find out your niche and fill it. If it is ever so little, if it is only to be a chopper of wood and a drawer of water, do something in this great battle for God and truth. --Charles Haddon Spurgeon

And what kind of habitation pleases God? What must our natures be like before he can feel at home within us? He asks nothing but a pure heart and a single mind. He asks no rich paneling, no rugs from the Orient, no art treasures from afar. He desires but sincerity, transparency, humility, and love. He will see to the rest. --A. W. Tozer

One of the ways that our faith expresses itself is by our ability to be still, to be present, and not to panic or lose perspective. God still does his best work in the most difficult of circumstances. --Tim Hansel

When we won't let ourselves be held in the midst of our messes by God who loves us and made us, we miss the unspeakable joy of knowing that we are truly His beloved. --Deborah Newman

There is hardly ever complete silence in the soul. God is whispering to us well-nigh incessantly. Whenever the sounds of the world die out in the soul, or sink low, then we hear the whisperings of God. --F. W. Faber

From the tiny birds of the air and from the fragile lilies of the field, we learn the same truth . . . God takes care of His own. . . . At just the right moment, He steps in and proves Himself as our faithful heavenly Father. --Charles Swindoll

Green pastures are before me, which yet I have not seen; Bright skies will soon be o'er me where darkest clouds have been; My hope I cannot measure, my path to life is free; My Savior has my treasure, and He will walk with me. --Anna L. Waring

It is not part of the Christian hope to look for a life in which a man is saved from all trouble and distress; the Christian hope is that a man in Christ can endure any kind of trouble and distress, and remain erect all through them, and come out to glory on the other side. --William Barclay

When we learn to say a deep, passionate yes to the things that really matter. . . then peace begins to settle onto our lives like golden sunlight sifting to a forest floor. -- Thomas Kinkade

No matter how unloved you have felt in the past, no matter how lost you feel in your sin, God knew all that when he chose you-- and he wants you anyway. --Wayne Jacobsen

Whenever I am afield or outdoors, there steals over me the acute consciousness that I am confronted on every hand by the superb workmanship of my Father. It is as if every tree, rock, river, flower, mountain, bird, or blade of grass had stamped upon it the indelible label, "Made by God." Is it any wonder that in a simple yet sublime sense of devotion, respect, and reverence for all life, Christ longed for His Father's name to be hollowed throughout the earth? --Phillip Keller

With God our trust can be abandoned, utterly free. In him are no limitations, no flaws, no weaknesses. His judgment is perfect, his knowledge of us is perfect, his love is perfect. God alone is trustworthy. --Eugenia Price

We can walk without fear, full of hope and courage and strength to do his will, waiting for the endless good which he is always giving as fast as he can get us able to take it in. --George MacDonald

God has frequently to knock the bottom board out of your experience if you are a saint in order to get you into contact with Himself. God wants you to understand this is a life of faith, not a life of sentimental enjoyment of His blessings. . . . "Though He slay me yet will I trust Him" -- this is the most sublime utterance of faith in the whole of the Bible. --Oswald Chambers

Are you weak? Weary? Confused? Troubled? Pressured? How is your relationship with God? Is it held in its place of priority? I believe the greater the pressure, the greater your need for time alone with Him. --Kay Arthur

Even in terrible circumstances and calamities, in matters of life and death, if I sense that I am in the shadow of God, I find light, so much light that my vision improves dramatically. I know that holiness is near. --Kathleen Norris
