Wait

 

What then are we to do about our problems? We must learn to live with them until such time as God delivers us from them…we must pray for grace to endure them without murmuring. Problems patiently endured will work for our spiritual perfecting. They harm us only when we resist them or endure them unwillingly.- A.W. Tozer 

Wait for the LORD; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.

Psalm 37:9

Grace

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” ~ Jesus Christ, Matthew 11: 28-30,     MSG 

opportunity

You can measure opportunity with the same yardstick that measures the risk involved. They go together. Earl Nightingale

 

Be very careful, then, how you live–not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity because the days are evil.     Ephesians 5: 15-16

freedom

I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.  ~James Madison

. . . “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John: 31,32

liberty

 

 

“Those who won our independence believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty.” Louis D. Brandeis

 

 

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another humbly in love. Galatians 5:13
