focus

Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.”
Zig Ziglar

Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Proverbs 4:25

grace

My trust in God flows out of the experience of his loving me, day in and day out, whether the day is stormy or fair, whether I’m sick or in good health, whether I’m in a state of grace or disgrace. He come to me where I live and loves me as I am. Brennan Manning

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

judging

By judging others we blind ourselves to our own evil and to the grace which others are just as entitled to as we are.”   Dietrich   Bonhoeffer     

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Luke 6:37 – 

thoughts

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again, To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives. Henry David Thoreau

“The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart. Luke 6:45
