Being still and waiting on God is doing something. Praying for the young should never become old. Nothing costs as much as caring, except not caring. Christian unity comes from unity with Jesus Christ. What if all you possessed today is only what you gave thanks for yesterday? The Lord can give us power immediately, but building character takes some time. God puts work into our lives, and he expects us to put life into our work. Not trying because of the fear of failing, holds one back from the joy of living! Failure is not the final judgement, just a judgement about one event. It is not a disgrace to fail, but it is a sin not to try your best. It is nobler to try something and fail, than to try nothing and succeed. Many quit before they even start. The extended forecast is Jesus Reigning forever. Mercy moves us and God's grace empowers us. If you want to leave footprints in the sands of time, wear work boots. Worry is wasting today's time to clutter up tomorrow's opportunities with yesterdays troubles. At the heart of worship is worship from the heart. Pay no attention to negative remarks about you, just live so no body will believe them. True repentance is sorrow for the deed, not for getting caught. Roses come with thorns and relationships come with hurts. Faithfulness is God's requirement: fruitfulness is his reward. Treat others faults as graciously as you do your own. There are no orphans in God's family. You can't erase your sins with an eraser, only the blood of Jesus can do that. The Lord never let's you out of his sight. Part of self control is mouth control. Nothing is really lost when we sacrifice our life for Jesus. Waiting on the Lord is doing something. Live your Christian life so powerfully that when you wake each morning the devil will say, "Oh No! They're up!" Jesus isn't my whole life, but he sure makes my life whole! Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th time. Pick your friends, but not to pieces. Give your all to Christ, he gave his all for you. When you aim at nothing, you hit it. God is so big He can cover the world with his love and so small He can curl up inside your heart. Life is a gift from God to be lived for God. A 'Yes" from God is all you really need. A key to failure is trying to please everyone but God. Jesus is an excellent guidance counselor. The worst prison is a closed heart. We judge the actions we see, but only God can see and judge the heart. God is the only know it all. Be a fountain, not a drain. If we put God's word in our hearts, the Holy Spirit can put the right words in our mouth. Witness for Jesus with your life, as well as your lips. Coming together is a beginning, keep together is progress, working together is success. To walk with God, we must talk with God. When we walk with God, we will be out of step with the world. When you see life in view of eternity, your values change. Your boundaries are your values. In Christ we are a victor not a victim. The difference between apathy and ignorance is "I don't care and I don't know!" No one raises his reputation by lowering others. Reputation is built on what you have done not what you are going to do. Jesus was born so we could be 'born again'. Life can be hard: It's even harder if you don't have faith. The 'Sun' and the 'Son of God' both give us light. The Christian family is like branches of a tree, growing in different directions, but having the same root. Keep looking to the 'Son', and your shadow will always be behind you. No one plans to fail, but some fail because they fail to plan. When we read the Bible, God speaks! To be spiritually fit, feed on God's word and exercise your faith. When we put our problems in God's hands, he then puts his peace in our hearts. The best place for God's word is in our heart. Grace: Getting what we don't deserve. Mercy: Not getting what we deserve. It's not how high we jump for joy that counts, but how straight we walk after coming down. We should be more concerned about being 'Biblically Correct' than being 'Politically Correct'. I smile because you are my Christian brother and I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it!

The only right a Christian has is the right to give up his rights. No man is conquered until his heart is conquered. If we make our own inability a stumbling block or an excuse not to be obedient, it means that we are telling God that his grace is not sufficient. You might not be interested in politics, but be sure that politics is interested in you! I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet! Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good 'Thank you Jesus.' “Church Sundays are better than Baskin-Robbins.” "People are like tea bags-you have to put them in hot water before you know how strong they are." "God so loved the world that He did not send a committee." "Come in and pray today. Beat the Christmas rush!" "When down in the mouth, remember Jonah came out all right." "Fight truth decay-study the Bible daily." "How will you spend eternity-Smoking or Non-smoking?" "Dusty Bibles lead to Dirty Lives" "It is unlikely there'll be a reduction in the wages of sin." "Do not wait for the hearse to take you to church." "If you're headed in the wrong direction, God allows U-turns." "Looking at the way some people live, they ought to obtain eternal fire insurance soon." "This is a ch_ _ ch. What is missing?" "Forbidden fruit creates many jams." "In the dark? Follow the Son." Mountain top experiences are great, but things grow in the valley. Live simply, love much and expect little. Work the Word and the Word will Work for You. A smile is curved line which sets a lot of things straight. The most common investment problem seems to be the lack of money. A cynic smells flowers and looks for a coffin. Do you think more of tolerance than truth? The way out of trouble is never as easy as the way in. If you can't be a runner-up, don't be a runner -down. Is the problem unanswered prayer or unoffered prayer? When God is not the center of our lives, we are off balance. Being different is not the same as making a difference. The best angle to approach any problem is the try-angle. Following Jesus cost more than anything -except not following him. The best excercise for a better relationship is to bend over backwards. True charity doesn't care if it is tax deductable or not. None of us is entitled to a moral furlough. If you are born once, you shall die twice, but if you are born twice, you die only once. Prepare and prevent instead of repair and repent. The self-sufficient do not pray; the self-satisfied will not pray; the self-righteous cannot pray. No man is greater than his prayer life.

When your back is against the wall, remember his was against the cross! Life is a test, an open Bible test! Sin is expensive, who's paying for yours! The human spirit fails, unless the Holy Spirit fills! Faith does not grow in a house of certainty. Jesus taught that we could have life "before" death. Jesus gives us fulfillment by giving us someone to love, something to do and something to hope for. True happiness is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. What the New Year brings us will depend a great deal on what we bring to the New Year. A New Year's resolution is something that comes in one year and out the other. Some preachers should put more fire in their sermons, and some sermons in the fire. The word 'Bible' could mean 'Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth'. If you want the knowledge of God's kingdom to spread, then start spreading it yourself. Humility is so shy, that if you begin talking about it, it disappears. "The Bible is called the Holy Bible because it has a holy author, and aims at a holy purpose, which is the production of holiness in its readers." It seems that the Supreme court has handed down the eleventh commandment, "Thou shall not read, in any classroom, the first ten!" Straight living can't come out of crooked thinking! Even if we can't have all we want, we ought to be thankful God doesn't give us the penalty of all our sin! You have to give most American parents credit, they know how to obey their children! Delayed obedience is brother to disobedience. Becoming overweight doesn't happen overnight, it just snacks up on you! God's word does not change, but feelings do! A foolish opinion shared by thousands is still a foolish opinion! The time to teach obedience to authority is in the playpen, not in the Sate Pen! Christ was a person who knew more than his earthly parents, but still he obeyed them! I'm not looking for the undertaker, but looking for the upper taker! Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of it's sorrow, it empties today of it's strength! No man will be condemned for not changing his own heart, but that he did not ask God to change it for him! We live in desperate times, yet the church is not yet desperate in prayer! It is wonderful what God can do with a broken heart, if he gets all the pieces. Mary and Joseph lost Jesus at church, and they aren't the only ones to lose him there. Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes destiny. God looks at how many we serve, not how many servants we have! Some are more focused on attainment, rather than Christ's atonement! Homes are really nothing more than the people who live there! Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway! The Bible is one of the worlds oldest books and the author is still living! It is better to forgive and forget, than to hate and remember. The heart that is happiest is the one that beats for others. The darkest ignorance is a man's ignorance of God. Prevent 'Sin burn' by using 'Son Screen'. Generosity will leave a more pleasant memory than stinginess. A little lie is like a pregnancy, it doesn't take long before everyone knows. Happiness is in the heart, not in the circumstances. Conviction is a belief that you hold or that holds you. Few burdens are heavy when everyone lifts. I don't question your existence - God! American needs a 'Faith Lift'. Lord, please help me be the person my dog thinks I am. Dear God, I have a problem, it's Me. There is no key to happiness, because the door is always open. Silence is often misinterpreted but never misquoted. Do the math .. count your blessings. Faith is the ability to not panic. If you worry, you didn't pray and if you pray, don't worry. As a child of God, prayer is kind of like calling home everyday. Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape. The most important things in your house are the people.

Have a great day because 'The SON' is shining and HE can certainly use you! The Lord didn't say the Christian life would be easy, just that it would be worth it! The more a man bows his knee before God, the straighter he stands before men. People are funny; they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of the church. Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door forever. Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn't belong. If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has. God Himself does not propose to judge a man until he is dead. So why should we? Some minds are like concrete thoroughly mixed up and permanently set. Peace starts with a smile. I don't know why some people change churches; what difference does it make which one you stay home from? A lot of church members who are singing 'Standing on the Promises' <="" p=""> We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges. Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous. Don't put a question mark where God put a period. Don't wait for 6 strong men to take you to church. Forbidden fruits create many jams. God grades on the cross, not the curve. God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage. He who angers you, controls you! If God is your Co-pilot - swap seats! Prayer: Don't give God instructions -- just report for duty! The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us. The Will of God never takes you to where the Grace of God will not protect you. We don't change the message, the message changes us. You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him. The best mathematical equation I have ever seen: 1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given. Good morals will keep you out of jail, but it takes the blood of Jesus to keep you out of hell. Coins are made of metal, because change is hard. Do not wait for the hearse to take you to church. If you're headed in the wrong direction, God allows U-turns. If you don't like the way you were born, try being born again. Looking at the way some people live, they ought to obtain eternal fire insurance soon. Before you remove a fence, always tarry long enough to think about why it was built in the first place. There is only one angle at which to stand straight, but infinite angles by which you can be crooked. Never turn out the light at night, unless at sometime that day you have turned on the light of God's Word. You could be a believer for 10 years, but only have the spiritual maturity of a one year old. There is freedom in submission, but bondage in rebellion. True freedom is the ability to say 'no' to sin and 'yes' to righteousness. A vaccination shot now may hurt, but it can protect from great pain later. Some people pray just to pray and some people pray to know God. Exercise daily, walk with God. Words that can make life sweeter are 'please' and 'thank you', use them often. Giving is intentional, it never happens by accident. Dogs don't bark at parked cars. To make a difference in the world, let Jesus make a difference in you. To move up in life, you must stay on the level! Either the Bible will keep you away from sin, or sin will keep you away from the Bible!

Grevious words stir up anger, but a soft answer turns away wrath! The decisions you have made in the past have helped determine your present situation.

The problem of running in the 'rat race' is that at the end you're still a rat! Do good because you love, not to be loved! The heart of the human problem is the human heart! God is in the business of behavioral modification! Love your enemy, it will confuse them! What temptation offers, it takes back exponentially! Even if someone is always bad, you can learn from them consistency! If absence makes the heart grow fonder, then a lot of folks must really love the church. If you feel like a 'ZERO', stand with the 'ONE' God and you become a 'TEN'! Your hunger for things of God is a measure of your spiritual health! You can't fake it, you must faith it!

If our hands are already full of ourselves, then God can't fill them. Many would be scantily clad if clothed with humility. The way to break a habit is to drop it! An atheist can't find God for the same reason a thief can't find a policeman. Religion is living up to a standard, whereas Christianity is living out a relationship. One never stumbles when they stay on their knees. A Bible falling apart from use, shows the owner is someone whose life isn't. Accept Jesus as Savior and boycott hell! Some Christians are like wheelbarrows, they have to be pushed. U do 2 others what U want others 2 do 2 U. To avoid getting burnt, look to the 'Son'!!

The good Lord didn't create anything without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close. When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there. A week without prayer makes one weak! Going to church on Sunday doesn't make you a Christian anymore than walking into a garage makes you a car. God gave us two ears and one mouth, so listen twice as much as you speak. If you talk the talk, then walk the walk. > "Prayer is preoccupation with our needs. > Praise is preoccupation with our blessings > Worship is preoccupation with God himself." > - Leonard Ravenhill
