I'm Listening

Over the last week or so I've heard some amazing quotes and scriptures that have really spoken to me, and I thought they were definitely worth sharing.

* "Focus on your giants, and you will stumble. Focus on God, and your giants will tumble." Michael Smalley (our new interim pastor) I hope I said that right, but I'm sure you get the idea.

* "The devil may have gotten his foot in the door, but God will never allow him to take residence. Praise God." My dear friend Liana

* "I think we're dreaming too small, honey. I think God is allowing some huge trials to happen to redirect our attention to His plans. " Skip

* Shortly after praying as a family about the previous discussion, God led me to this verse and I am committing this to Him: "Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently before him. " Psalm 37:3-7 As an extra insight, I have shared that a passion of ours is to one day have land here, and do you see in this verse that God mentions "enjoy safe pasture". I may be reading into things, but it was just like God to give me a specific gift in scripture like that.

* "A path without obstacles is a path without challenges. When you prepare for the unexpected you're prepared for everything. " Rev Run

* "Where God guides; He provides." Bil Cornelius

* "I believe the Lord asked me to take this unnatural, uncomfortable step so that my dependence would be on Him alone, and not my own abilities." Julie

I love that you find the quotes of those you know best to be equally profound as some well known preacher. I'll be copying a couple of these to my personal file. And I love how you and Skip operate easily as a perfect team. BTW, I nominated you for an award.

Here's one for you. I heard it a long time ago and it REALLY stuck with me. (not sure if you'll get it since you wrote this so long ago)

Here it is anyway,

"God must have something really AWESOME planned for me, because if He didn't, Satan wouldn't be working so hard on me."
