Here are some quotes that I like and that I have recently seen:
Sometimes in my life, I admit, I have not wanted the pain that comes along with spiritual growth… but I was so blind because you see, along with misery comes miracles, along with burdens come blessings, along with our pain, God sends his amazing power to sustain and enable us to grow and have more insight into who He really is and what He is able to do in our lives as we surrender to him fully!
Jesus was rejected by men, but chosen by God. The rejection of man is meaningless if God’s favor is upon you.
And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.
If you dislike someone, dislike them alone. Don’t recruit others to join your cause.
