More Inspirational Thoughts to Ponder

If you keep on doing what you've always done, you'll keep on getting what you've always got! WL Bateman

Sadness, disappointment, and despair have to flee in the presence of hope. Unknown Author

On the sharp end – a term from rock climbing. You are on the sharp end of the rope when you are the "lead", going first up the rockface and placing removable anchors as you go. The lead climber finds the route to follow and then brings the other climbers safely to the next ledge. Life, in leadership and followership, is a lot like rock climbing. – Francois and Joy Guilleux

God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:2 in The Message

Life is hard, but even the hard parts are worth celebrating. God is always molding our story into an epic narrative that is designed to save many lives Donald Miller

There will always be resistance, and it may never get easy, but from here your life looks so sweet. Here at the beginning of the story, there's mostly paralyzing fear. Fear of failure, fear of hard work, fear of being alone in the hard work and also failing alone. Fear of the thing I've never been, however beautiful it might claim to be. What if I heard God wrong? Fear that when I get to heaven he'll shake his head and say something like "What were you thinking?"The smile on your face today says you fought through it. You're doing what you were born to do, and you know it. Lori Ventola

For all our disappointing dullness, our Lord is invincibly optimistic about us. McVeigh Harrison

Whether our prayer be for supplication for temporal or spiritual benefits, intercession, thanksgiving, or worship, it must always be in harmony with His teaching in the Holy Scriptures. McVeigh Harrison

Sometimes, even good things can fill up our lives to the point where we neglect our souls Jon W. Quinn

Where faith grows, anxiety lessens Jon W. Quinn
