Great Things – Expect and Attempt

Hands Raised

“Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God.”

I heard those words spoken at church this morning. Really like this quote!

Being bold in how we pray, how we approach God and how we believe in what He promises…all very important.

Just as important…how we live our lives.

This challenged me today, but also encouraged me. It was a reminder to give my all for Him – at the same time, to be confident in what He can (and will) do in our lives.

Have a great day!

Equipped to Love

“With the power of the Spirit, we are equipped to love our neighbor as ourselves today.”
–Mark Shields

I read this quote the other day and it stuck with me.

With all the fighting in the world that goes on, the disagreements, the hurt feelings…this is so important to internalize.

We have the power to love people. We have the power to love people as we would like to be loved. It’s there. We just need to tap into it.

Thanks, Mark – for the reminder, the motivation and the encouragement.

Have a great day. Go show some love to someone, while you’re at it. 🙂

An Extraordinary Destiny

Hardships

“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.”
-C.S. Lewis

Amen to that! Whatever you’re going through right now, there’s purpose in it.

You may not see it. Heck, you may not be able to even fathom that this is possible from where you’re at right now. But, it is. Hang in there. God has a terrific and fruitful plan for your life – an extraordinary destiny awaits!

Have a great day.
