Sabbath Keeping

~ the road home ~

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

"God wants us to lay our burdens on Him and rest in His love. It's His responsibility to work out the purpose and plan in our hardships. ..." ~ Helen Keller ~
Faith isn't the ability to believe long and far into the misty future.
     It's  simply taking God at His Word and taking the next step.
         ~ Joni Erickson Tada

"I would rather err on the side of faith than on the side of doubt."  ~ Robert Schuller ~

"The great lesson is that the sacred is in the ordinary, that it is to be found in one's daily life, in one's neighbors, friends, and family, in one's backyard." ~ Abraham Maslow ~

"The Lord will either calm your storm or 
allow it to rage while He calms you." 
~ proverb ~

Above all else, know this:  
Be prepared at all times for the gifts of God and be ready always for new ones.  
For God is a thousand times more ready to give than we are to receive." 
~ Meister Eckhart ~

"God is even kinder than you think." ~ St. Theresa ~

"Fear knocked at the door and faith answered. No one was there." ~ proverb ~

"Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." ~ Philippians 3:13-14 ~

Blessings ~ faith ~ prayers ~ the gift of both now and the future  ~ God ~
