weary

We can be tired, weary and emotionally distraught, but after spending time alone with God, we find that He injects into our bodies energy, power and strength. Charles Stanley


He gives strength to the weary,
And to him who lacks might He increases power.
Though youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.

Isaiah 40:29-31

power

With the power of God within us we need never fear the powers around us. Woodrow Kroll

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Timothy 1/7

tribulation

God, who foresaw your tribulation, has specifically armed you to go through it, not without pain but without stain. C.S. Lewis

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33

honor

I would prefer even to fail with honor than win by cheating.” Sophocles

To wish for change will change nothing. To make the decision to take action right now will change everything! Nick Vujicic

Make me know Your ways, O Lord;

Teach me Your paths.

Lead me in Your truth and teach me,

For You are the God of my salvation;

For You I wait all the day. Psalm 25:4-5

idolatry

Idolatry’ is the practice of seeking the source and provision of what we need either physically or emotionally in someone or something other than the one true God. It is the tragically pathetic attempt to squeeze life out of lifeless forms that cannot help us meet our real needs.”
― Scott J. Hafemann

Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry. Colossians 3:5

thankful

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.” – Alphonse Karr

Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1Thessalonians 5:16-18

words

Be careful with your words. Once they are said they can be only forgiven, not forgotten. Unknown

Watch your tongue and keep your mouth shut, and you will stay out of trouble.  Prov 21:23

listen

True listening is obedient listening. To listen to God is to obey Him. Leanne Payne

But He said, “On the contrary, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.”
Luke 11:28

promises

God hath not promised skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God hath not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.

But God hath promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labor, light for the way,
Grace for the trials, help from above,
Unfailing sympathy, undying love.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in times of trouble . Psalm 46:1

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; Hebrews 10:23
