I can’t believe it’s August. I remember hoping for warmer weather. August is also my birthday month so as the years go by, I’m surprised more and more at becoming a year older.
There are a lot of powerful quotes from last month’s round of bloggers. I pray at least one speaks to you.
“So as I am going through this process of long and slow goodbyes, I am keeping my eyes on the new life that is waiting. And through this God is teaching me to keep my eyes fixed on Him in all the big or small “deaths” I may face.” Olivia (Olivia In Bolivia)
“I couldn’t just fix what was on the surface and expect to be healed… I can now tell you with confidence that no matter what you’ve gone through, regardless of what you’re facing right now, nothing is too hard for the Lord. ” Maggie (Dreaming Of Guatemala)
“Personally, I fall into the desire to live carefreely. I do good for a while, staying on top of my goals for myself and my household, then without hardly realizing it – I desire for that carefree moment of no demands – physically, mentally or spiritually. ” Love Joy Balance
“Isn’t it funny how our pride and past sin can creep up on us when God is trying to help us grow and mature in our faith?” Sarah (Sarah Mozingo)
“We are pilgrims and sojourners through this land. This is NOT our home. We must keep our eyes on the things eternal, especially when “suddenly” moments come our way.” (Precious One)
“But experience has taught me that the more I have to do, the more time with God I need before I do it. His comforting Holy Spirit both energizes and calms me for the day to come. The more time I spend with him, the more my actions – and reactions to my family throughout the day – are influenced by him.” Meredith (My Way Home Life)
“We are not to hide our light, our testimonies for Jesus Christ, or the teaching of the true and full gospel message of our salvation. We are also not to conceal the light of Christ being lived out through our lives, either.” Sue (Run With It)
“Mere man isn’t capable to fulfilling us; that role belongs to the Lord. Too many times, young women, yes Christian women, myself included at one time, enter marriage with the belief that this man will make me happy.” Brenda (Becoming His Tapestry)
“People can appear to have it all and be on top of the world, but on the inside they are discontent, hurt, and empty. We live in a world where it’s easy for people to put up a facade, but their reality is less than pleasant.” Dawn (Drawing Closer To Christ)
“TRUSTING GOD means more than everything turning out like you want it to. It means that you trust sovereign God to take care of you no matter how things turn out.” Deborah (Great Is God’s Faithfulness)
“As a Christian blogger who bears her heart openly on WordPress, I’ve learned to realize that if I’m transparent, I need to willingly take the heat from others. I am more of a sensitive soul, so I can get a bit worked up when others find fault in me through my writing.” Vivian (God’s Whispers Of Truth)
Which quote spoke to you?
Monthly Scripture – (NLT) Proverbs 29:19, “Words alone will not discipline a servant; the words may be understood, but they are not heeded.”
