A smile starts on the lips, A grin spreads to the eyes, A chuckle comes from the belly; But a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, Overflows, and bubbles all around

I believe the holier a man becomes, the more he mourns over the unholiness which remains in him.
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.

Jesus sees our sin more clearly than anyone, yet He loves us more than anyone. He’s not going to write us off because we had an abortion or are addicted to prescription meds or look at naked people online. Yes, He is grieved by our sin. It’s destroying us, and He hates that. But our badness does not change for an instant the overpowering love of God for us. If anything, it makes Him that much more determined to rescue us. He will never give up on us, no matter how much we run from Him.

You will have as much joy and laughter in life as you have faith in God.

Some days I wake up with no appetite for God. Every day is a war for what we will love most. Don’t stop fighting. He’s worth it.

You cannot be Christ’s servant if you are not willing to follow him, cross and all. What do you crave? A crown? Then it must be a crown of thorns if you are to be like him. Do you want to be lifted up? So you shall, but it will be upon a cross.
