" People don't often see the broken heart of humanity; we may be the only Jesus they ever meet or the only bible they ever read. We must reach out to people at all times and do the Lord's work while we spend our time here. And whenever you meet someone for the first time, don't judge him or her by what station they're at in life because you never know, that person may end up being your best friend."

" What if we didn't have the capacity for healing, unity, and forgiveness? What if we didn't try to listen, say thanks, or be kind? What if we didn't need each other... or say I love you? What if we hadn't experienced the terror, the pains, the regrets, and foibles of being human? But we did. We know more. Let's not forget that we do."
Louise B. Parsley --- Submitted by Bethany E., Age 14 --- Texas

" In order for the Lord to make you, He must break you. The defining moment when we become truly dependent on the Lord is when there is no one left to depend on, but Him. Because you see, there is nothing more gratifying to our Sovereign Father than when we come before the Throne of God on our knees, naked, poor and helpless, full of humility. It is only then that the Lord is able to wrap his arms of mercy around us, heal our wounds and enable us bloom into the most beautiful flower, for He Himself is more beautiful than we could ever imagine."
Written in 2003 by R.P., Age 19 --- Indiana
I've been through the storm and I've been through the fire. I have been hurled into a pit of despair and I've survived the fires of hell. It is only at my very least that the Lord could make me my very best. When you realize everything else around you has fallen away, and you fall to the ground on your knees and cry, "Where were you Lord in all of this?" He bends down, picks us up with His mighty hand and says, "My dear child, I never left. You did." These are the words that I live by. He is my Savior.

" We often pray for bigger and better things. In the process we neglect what we already have. Be content with what and whom you have today. Cherish them today, if you fail to it might not be at your disposal tomorrow."

" Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you. Make level paths for your feet, and take only ways that are firm, do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil."

" Let your Love be like the misty rain, falling softly, yet flooding the rivers..."

Found this in one of those "motto" shops in a plaque. To me, it is an ideal way for a mother to love her children/ her husband...her friend...anyone.

" No obstacle in life shall be wasted. We truly do not understand the reoccurring preaches of our fellow teacher unless the lesson is to be learned first hand. No man will understand 'Not to touch the hot oven' until he is burned. Until he is burned, he will not understand the beauty of the lesson, for no lesson can be learned or gained without a little pain. When we understand the pain, we will learn the pot is to be avoided and the obstacle already overcome. No obstacle will be wasted; no lesson will be learned without sacrifice."

Whenever I feel down and low and feel that life is not worth living, I go through these lines and immediately I get a sense of relief that now I need not worry as God's going to take care of all my troubles. Hope it will serve you the same way friends.
