Installment #2 from "QUIET TIMES: Uplifting Thoughts for Women" (and men....):
"Too much garbage in our mind
can push out all of the good things
God wants to give us.
Let's determine that today, with God's help,
we will begin to make wise
choices about what to do with
the garbage that fills our minds."
"Our offenses and sins weigh
us down, and we are wasting
away because of them."
~ Ezekiel 33:10 (NIV)
"Often we hear easy, flippant
praise to God's goodness.
But God never promised us a rose garden;
He just promised His presence.
But His presence--His mercy and truth--
is what can carry us through the bad times."
"All the paths of the Lord
are mercy and truth.
To such as keep his covenant
and His testimonies."
~ Psalm 25:10
"When I set goals I think of small steps
that will help me reach that goal.
Small steps are better than no steps.
If you take a few small steps
every day you'll be at your destination sooner
than you think."
"The steps of a good man
are ordered by the Lord.
And He delights in his way."
~ Psalme 37:23
"Turning over our controlling
tendencies to God can be a daily relief.
Admitting we are powerless and that we need help
from Jesus Christ
places our lives in perspective."
"Gad has spoken once.....
That power belongs to God.
~ Psalm 62:11
