Life Lessons!

Only one life, 'twill soon be past, Only what's done for Christ will last." -C.T. Studd

If you have done your duty and fulfilled your role then the results are totally up to God. You must be prepared to deal joyfully with whatever he brings you! If we knew what He was doing, we wouldn't need to trust! :) "For we are saved by hope; but hope that is seen is not hope; for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?"One of the Bible stories I've had to study lately is the story of Joseph. I am always amazed how he trusted God even in perfectly awful circumstances, and God used the suffering in his life to do incredible things! He'll do the same thing for you!!
-Esther Maria Wong

The way you live matters for you and for the kingdom of God. If you want your life to be significant, the key is to draw near to God. "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you" James 4:8 god accomplishes His purposes, yet man is responsible for the things that he does. It is when we know who we are, what we are, where we are, and where God is, that we know what to do.  "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble." - Gary Custis

Sin is like mold, it grows best in the dark. Expose it to light and it drys up. - Tim Chester

The world with all it's kingdoms, the world with all it's splendor, cannot compare with the splendor with which our God delights in us. He reigns in our hearts, and dwells there as in heaven. Ah, God, how blessed are we, and how blessed shall we be, when after our time on earth we shall dwell with you in heaven. - J.S.Bach
