Short Sayings – July 4th, viagra generic search 2011

Friends

Real friends are those who, sildenafil buy viagra when you’ve made a fool of yourself, don’t feel you’ve done a permanent job…Randall

Courage

Many a good man has failed because he had his wishbone where his backbone should have been…..

Doing

“Between the great things we cannot do and the small things we will not do, the danger is that we shall do nothing.”  Monod

Faith

Sorrow looks back…Worry looks around…   Faith looks up!

Contentment

The secret to contentment is the realization that life is a gift not a right.

Failure

Falling down does not make you a failure, but staying down may.

Healing

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.

Overwhelming Challenges

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]

Children

No man ever really finds out what he believes in until he begins to instruct his children.

Contentment

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

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!

Forgiveness

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.

An Example?

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!

Dependence

“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.

Forgiveness

He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass.   (Herbert)

Peace

Jesus is a friend who walks in when the whole world has walked out on you.

Self glory

“The person, who does things that count, usually doesn’t stop to count them.

All forgiven

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.

Trials

A trial was never given to any man that was greater than that one’s strength through God  to bear it.

Affliction

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

Christmas

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

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.

Holy Spirit

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.

Worry

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.

Marriage

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.

Marriage

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.
