Amen to this =)
If life is a river, then pursuing Christ requires swimming upstream. When we stop swimming, or actively following Him, we automatically begin to be swept downstream."
Francis Chan, Crazy Love
If women would yearn for closeness with Jesus the way they yearn for closeness with an earthly male, their lives would be absolutely transformed."
God didn’t promise days without pain, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day and light for the way. #prayforphilippines #yolanda #bangonpinas #stateofcalamity
Kinds of people in times of adversity!
There are three kinds of people you will meet in life: (1) The critic. They’re the first to point an accusing finger and the last to extend a helping hand. (2) The cautious. When you’re in trouble they’ll distance you lest they become tainted by your perceived liabilities. These people are not bad, they’re just self-serving. Don’t put your trust in them. (3) The committed. “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” Recognize such people and build your life around them because they are a gift from God.
