We Are Priviledged

‎"Instead of comparing our lot with that of those who are more fortunate than we are, we should compare it with the lot of the great majority of our fellow men. It then appears that we are among the privileged." - Helen Keller

I Have a Shelter - Sovereign Grace

I have a shelter in the storm

When troubles pour upon me

Though fears are rising like a flood

My soul can rest securely

O Jesus, I will hide in You

My place of peace and solace

No trial is deeper than Your love

That comforts all my sorrows

I have a shelter in the storm

When all my sins accuse me

Though justice charges me with guilt

Your grace will not refuse me

O Jesus, I will hide in You

Who bore my condemnation

I find my refuge in Your wounds

For there I find salvation

I have a shelter in the storm

When constant winds would break me

For in my weakness, I have learned

Your strength will not forsake me

O Jesus, I will hide in You

The One who bears my burdens

With faithful hands that cannot fail

You’ll bring me home to heaven

The Love of God

Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made;

Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade.

To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry;

Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.

O love of God, how rich and pure, how measureless and strong;

It shall for evermore endure, the Saints’ and Angels’ song.

Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye. - Helen Keller

"Making excuses is always a waste of time because God is completely aware of who we are and what we can and cannot do. When God calls us, He not only equips us but empowers us to obey that calling." -Mary Southerland

The Missionary Heart

"The missionary heart: Care more than some think is wise. Risk more than some think is safe. Dream more than some think is practical. Expect more than some think is possible. I was called not to comfort or success but to obedience….There is no joy outside of knowing Jesus and serving him."

- Karen Watson, martyr, March 15, 2004

Seeing the good in the bad...

How many?

"The mark of a great church is not its seating capacity, but its sending capacity." — Mike Stachura

The Cure

"As long as there are millions destitute of the Word of God and knowledge of Jesus Christ, it will be impossible for me to devote my time and energy to those who have both."
- J.L. Ewen

Okay, so I agree and disagree with this quote. I love that it shows dedication to the spreading of the gospel. However, I think that serving the Church is also a great ministry. I think maybe he means that his calling is for the world though and that he cannot stay stagnant.


"If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice could be too great for me to make for Him." - C.T. Studd

Give All

"If I am afraid to speak the truth, lest I lose affection, or lest the one concerned should say, "You do not understand," or because I fear to lose my reputation for kindness; if I put my own good name before the other's highest good, then I know nothing of Calvary love" ~Amy Carmichael

What Grace is Mine

What grace is mine, that He who dwells in endless light

Called through the night to find my distant soul.

And from his scars poured mercy that would plead for me

That I might live and in his name be known.

So I will go wherever He is calling me;

I lose my life to find my life in Him.

I give my all to gain the hope that never dies;

I bow my heart, take up my cross, and follow Him.

What grace is mine, to know His breath alive in me;

Beneath his wings my wakened soul may soar.

All fear can flee for death's dark night is overcome;

My Saviour lives and reigns forevermore.

So I will go wherever He is calling me;

I lose my life to find my life in Him.

I give my all to gain the hope that never dies;

I bow my heart, take up my cross, and follow Him.

So I will go wherever He is calling me;

I lose my life to find my life in Him.

I give my all to gain the hope that never dies;

I bow my heart, take up my cross, and follow Him.

~ Keith and Kristyn Getty

Passion for Thee
