Having a soft heart in a cruel world is courage, not weakness.

It is difficult to bring people to goodness with lessons, but it is easy to do so by example.

Seneca (via lazyyogi)

You don’t measure love in time. You measure love in transformation. Sometimes the longest connections yield very little growth, while the briefest of encounters change everything. The heart doesn’t wear a watch - it’s timeless. It doesn’t care how long you know someone. It doesn’t care if you had a 40 year anniversary if there is no juice in the connection. What the heart cares about is resonance. Resonance that opens it, resonance that enlivens it, resonance that calls it home. And when it finds it, the transformation begins…

You’re weighing your value based on your life lived and what you remember and what you know about you. He’s weighing your value based on your created purpose, your destiny, and your potential when Christ is inside of you. He didn’t pay a price just to love what you’ve been and where you’ve been. He paid a price to love what He made you to be.

Never give up on a dream because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.

Grace isn’t leniency when we’ve sinned. Grace is the enabling gift of God not to sin. Grace is power, not just pardon.

Find Quiet Timeby Joyce Meyer

The [reverent] fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even than much fine gold; they are sweeter also than honey and drippings from the honeycomb. (Psalms 19:9-10 Amplified Bible)

Sometimes I set aside the entire day just to be with God. I stop everything and seek Him. I know I am not going to hear from God if I don’t get quiet on purpose by that time set aside for Him.

It is so important to have some “down time” to be alone and just sit quietly. You may think you don’t have time, but if somebody was giving out thousand-dollar bills at the mall, you would find time to get there. Don’t use the time to try to figure out something; just be still and available to the Lord’s attention.
