Rooted

Even the storms bear a message of encouragement for us: Deeper roots make for stronger lives.     Charles Swindol

 

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power – – – to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. Ephesians 3:17-18

Wounded

Tucked away in a quiet corner of every life are wounds and scars. If they were not there, we would need no Physician. Nor would we need one another. Charles Swindol

Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am faint; O Lord, heal me. Psalm 6:2

God’s faithfulness

It gives me a growing sense of inner peace to remember that God’s chapters are still being written. He has not yet said, “The end.” Charles Swindol

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassion never fail. They are new every morning: great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

faith – courageous

I need a faith that nothing can shake. Emphasis on NOTHING. Even when I do not know why, I can endure with a faith like that – even if I never find out why. Charles Swindol

Be strong and courageous. . . for the Lord you God goes with you, he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6

sidelined

God knows what He’s about. If He has you sidelined, out of the action for a while, He know what He’s dong. You just stay faithful – stay flexible – stay available – stay humble.    Chuck Swindol

Commit thy way unto the Lord, trust also in Him and he shall bring it to pass.   Psalm 37:5
