Just Sharing

Sometimes I like to share the inspiration and encouragement I receive from reading what others write. Yesterday I spent some time reading from one of my devotional books titled Every Day With Jesus. I have posted a few of the quotes from my reading. I hope they inspire and encourage you as much as they did me. Enjoy and be blessed.

For Thou madest us for Thyself, and our heart is restless, until it repose in Thee.

~Augustine of Hippo

When joy’s heart breaks, it’s because joy feels free and safe enough to embrace everything, even the feeling of falling to pieces.

~Mike Mason

It is noteworthy, then, that love is the soul’s inclination, strength, and power in making its way to God, for love unites it with God.

~John of the Cross

The Lord desires intensely that we…seek his company, so much so that from time to time he calls us to draw near him.

~Teresa of Avila

Love is why God created us in the first place…God did not make us because he was bored, lonely, or had run out of things to do.

~John Ortberg

Our dissatisfactions show what’s driving us. The challenge is to want what our Lord wants for us.

~Lloyd John Ogilvie

The more one loves God, the more one is content.

~Francois Fénelon

Use my afflictions, O God, to demonstrate your love and power and wisdom and faithfulness, even to the praise of your glory.

~John Bunyan

What higher, more exalted, and more compelling goal can there be than to know God?

~J. I. Packer

The paradox of the cross belonged to Jesus; the cross is at once the greatest picture of love, yet the clearest portrait of hate.

~Calvin Miller

Death cuts every man down to size except one, and his death enhanced him, universalized him, put the symbol of his death, the cross… in our hearts.

~E. Stanley Jones

Jesus exhibited both the greatest self-esteem and the greatest self-sacrifice.

~John Stott

God makes us ask ourselves questions most often when He intends to resolve them.

~Thomas Merton
