    “To live, to err, to fall, to triumph, to recreate life out of life!

On and on and on and on!”
  2. #2

    there are cuts and splinters
    and burns along the way.”

    “Lukewarm people don’t really want to be saved from their sin; they want only to be saved from the penalty of their sin.”
  2. #22
    “Can you worship a God who isn’t obligated to explain His actions to you? Could it be your arrogance that makes you think God owes you an explanation?”
  3. #23
    “Christians are like manure: spread them out and they help everything grow better, but keep them in one big pile and they stink horribly.”
  4. #24
    “But God doesn’t call us to be comfortable. He calls us to trust Him so completely that we are unafraid to put ourselves in situations where we will be in trouble if He doesn’t come through.”
  5. #25
    “Has your relationship with God changed the way you live your life?”
  6. #26
    “Lukewarm living and claiming Christ’s name simultaneously is utterly disgusting to God.”
  7. #27
    “But compassion is a deeper thing that waits beyond the tension of choosing sides. Compassion, in practice, does not require us to give up the truth of what we feel or the truth of our reality. Nor does it allow us to minimize the humanity of those who hurt us. Rather, we are asked to know ourselves enough that we can stay open to the truth of others, even when their truth or their inability to live up to their truth has hurt us.”
  8. #28
    “When I am consumed by my problems-stressed out about my life, my family, and my job-I actually convey the belief that I think the circumstances are more important than God’s command to always rejoice.”
  9. #29
    “We need to stop giving people excuses not to believe in God. You’ve probably heard the expression ‘I believe in God, just not organized religion’. I don’t think people would say that if the church truly lived like we are called to live.”
  10. #30
    “In actuality, misery is a moment of suffering allowed to become everything. So, when feeling miserable, we must look wider than what hurts. When feeling a splinter, we must, while trying to remove it, remember there is a body that is not splinter, and a spirit that is not splinter, and a world that is not splinter.”
  1. #31
    “Anything or anyone that asks you to be other than yourself is not holy, but is trying only to fill its own need.”
  2. #32
    “Let’s state it clearly: One great idea of the biblical revelation is that God is manifest in the ordinary, in the actual, in the daily, in the now, in the concrete incarnations of life, and not through purity codes and moral achievement contests, which are seldom achieved anyway.”
  3. #33
    “Christians are usually sincere and well-intentioned people until you get to any real issues of ego, control power, money, pleasure, and security. Then they tend to be pretty much like everybody else. We often given a bogus version of the Gospel, some fast-food religion, without any deep transformation of the self; and the result has been the spiritual disaster of “Christian” countries that tend to be as consumer-oriented, proud, warlike, racist, class conscious, and addictive as everybody else-and often more so, I’m afraid.”
  4. #34
    “Much of the work of midlife is to tell the difference between those who are dealing with their issues through you and those who are really dealing with you.”
  5. #35

  6. #36
    “It’s a gift to joyfully recognize and accept our own smallness and ordinariness. Then you are free with nothing to live up to, nothing to prove, and nothing to protect. Such freedom is my best description of Christian maturity, because once you know that your “I” is great and one with God, you can ironically be quite content with a small and ordinary “I.” No grandstanding is necessary. Any question of your own importance or dignity has already been resolved once and for all and forever.”
  7. #37
    “every time God forgives us, God is saying that God’s own rules do not matter as much as the relationship that God wants to create with us.”
  8. #38
    “People who know how to creatively break the rules also know why the rules were there in the first place.”
  9. #39
    “Faith does not need to push the river because faith is able to trust that there is a river. The river is flowing. We are in it.”
  10. #40
    “People who’ve had any genuine spiritual experience always know that they don’t know. They are utterly humbled before mystery. They are in awe before the abyss of it all, in wonder at eternity and depth, and a Love, which is incomprehensible to the mind.”

  2. #52
    Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself alone, one question . . . Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t it is of no use.”
  3. #53
    “Love is spiritual. It’s about self-sacrifice and commitment. And discipline. You cannot have true love without discipline. And respect. When you lose the respect of your spouse, you’ve lost everything.”
  4. #54
    “What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
    Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
    You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
    A heap of broken images...”

  12. #62
    “Our battle is spiritual, and what we accomplish in the spirit realm is as important as what the highly trained, prepared, and equipped soldier does in the physical. We must know our weapons and be highly skilled in using them. But first we must put on the armor God has given us in order to stand strong against”
