“We recognize that time in silence and listening is often painful, difficult, full of hardship, and demanding. Learning to be attentive to Jesus is a challenging discipline to sustain long-term.” (Contemplation in a World of Action by Thomas Merton)
WISDOM FROM OSWALD CHAMBERS
We are apt to think that everything that happens to us is to be turned into useful teaching; it is to be turned into something better than teaching, viz. into character. We shall find that the spheres God brings us into are not meant to teach us something but to make us something. The Love of God—The Ministry of the Unnoticed
The primary thought in the area of religion is— keep your eyes on God, not on people. | Have no motivation other than to know your Father in heaven.
“People are always leaving Jesus out and that’s why we’re in the mess we’re in.” Miss Clara, War Room
“I’d rather have a husband who runs after Jesus than a house full of things.” Elizabeth Jordan in War Room
Sometimes our best assets can’t be seen until failure removes the distractions. ~ Michael Hyatt
Character is based on values.
There is only one thing God wants of us, and that is our unconditional surrender.
- Oswald Chambers October 23rd
