Walking through the Valley!
"If you are a disciple, you are not a citizen of this world trying to get to heaven;
you are a citizen of heaven making your way through this world.”
- Vance Havner
Character is how you treat those who can do nothing for you...
Be kind to one another Ephesians 4
(even if you disagree about stuff)
One of the most difficult challenges
in life is learning not to take things to heart
and hold on.
Let it go!!!!
"To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible
than to be alive without breathing." Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Death is not extinguishing the light from the Christian;
it is putting out the lamp because the dawn has come. -Anonymous
Life will bring us questions without answers;
To live is to encounter silent seasons of the soul,
When every prayer will seem to go unanswered -
As we face events beyond our understanding or control.
Yet in the quiet darkness, Christ is working.
His silence in the shadows doesn't mean he doesn't care.
A part of faith is trusting without reason...
Believing, when he can't be seen or heard, that he's still there...
So when answers fail to come, don't be discouraged.
Keep leaning on his steadfast love and trusting in his will,
For knowing "why" won't really make a difference -
But growing close and knowing Jesus will.
-B. J. Hoff
For those hurting physically or emotionally
and those who are questioning and wondering where God is in the midst of suffering.
