Short Sayings – July 4th, viagra generic search 2011
Many a good man has failed because he had his wishbone where his backbone should have been…..
“Between the great things we cannot do and the small things we will not do, the danger is that we shall do nothing.” Monod
Sorrow looks back…Worry looks around… Faith looks up!
The secret to contentment is the realization that life is a gift not a right.
Falling down does not make you a failure, but staying down may.
God can heal a broken heart, but He needs all the pieces.
What others think
Be more concerned with what God thinks about you than what others do.
When confronted with a Goliath-sized problem, which way should your respond? “It’s too big to tackle,” or like David it’s too big a target not to take a shot at.
Ministering to others
Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep from it themselves. [James Barrier]
No man ever really finds out what he believes in until he begins to instruct his children.
Contentment isn’t getting what we want but being satisfied with what we have.
God is downright personal
The God who holds the sea in the palm of His hand, who swings this great earth in its orbit, who marshals stars and guides planets, is this very God who says, “I love you, I have your best interests in mind, ask what’s on your heart, and I will answer and give you what you need.
Gossip is passing on to others what is partially true or not true at all about another, because in the end you really don’t mind if that person gets hurt by it. And whoever gossips to you will one day likely gossip about you too!
Every person should have a special cemetery plot in their backyard for the purpose of burying the faults and transgressions of their loved ones, friends, and even adversaries.
The most valuable gift you can give another is a good example. You do this by serving him or her first, even beyond your own needs and wants. Kind of like the way Christ did; you know the example you were supposed to follow!
“When we depend upon organizations, we get what organizations can do, when we
depend upon education, we get what educations can do; when we depend upon man, we get what man can do, when we depend upon prayer, we get what God can do.”
Who was Jesus?
The Bible tells us Christ was fully and completely a man. But He was more than that: He was also God. He was not just a godly man; He was God Himself, wrapped in human flesh.
He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass. (Herbert)
Jesus is a friend who walks in when the whole world has walked out on you.
“The person, who does things that count, usually doesn’t stop to count them.
You can’t change the past, but with God’s help you can change the future. He knows all about your past weaknesses, failings, mistakes, sins, and the things you’ve done to hurt yourself and others. But forgives you anyway; all you need do is ask Him.
A trial was never given to any man that was greater than that one’s strength through God to bear it.
Affliction does not hit the Christian by chance, but by direction. Every one of its arrows goes upon a special errand and touches no breast unless allowed to by the Lord. For through affliction He sees what we cannot, which brings good, if not now then later, perhaps even much later.
Your Life Counts
To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, that is to have succeeded. Emerson
I’m at my best
“I am at best being me when you are around. I wish I could do the same for others.”
Forgiveness and Perspective
God never removes something from our lives without replacing it with something far better. Billy Graham
Often times we only think of God as little more than a glorified Santa Clause whom we turn to when wanting something. But He is not our servant to push around and demand from as we please. He is rather our loving Creator, Savior, and friend. Why not treat Him so, especially now during this Christmas season, the birth of Jesus the Son of God.
No matter how great the trouble or how dark the outlook, a quick lifting of the heart to God in a moment of real actual faith in Him will completely alter any situation and turn the darkness of midnight into a glorious sunrise.
Jesus gave us eternal life when we accepted us Him as Lord and Savior. The Holy Spirit gave us internal life after making that decision.
Breaths of life
Life is not made up of the number of breaths you take, but the number of moments that take your breath away. Christ can give you an abundance of those on earth, but an infinite number in heaven.
Today is here. It is what you worried so much about yesterday. So make the most of it, it will soon become a yesterday. And don’t worry about tomorrow, when it gets here you will know what to do, especially if you rely on the Lord when it comes.
The mark of a great marriage is when a wife loves her husband so much she is willing to live her life for him, while at the same time he loves her so much that he is willing to give up his life for her.
In order for a marriage to work as it should it needs a mutual commitment of unselfishness toward one another.
Marriage and Grace
All marriages need grace: grace to accept, to overlook, to understand, to forgive, to respect, to restrain, and the willingness to give more than receive. Only God can assure this kind of grace.
