Sabbath Keeping

 ~ Dandy Man in the lead... ~
 "If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, 
then how canst thou contend with horses?" 

"Faith is knowing there’s an ocean because you have seen a brook." ~ William Arthur Ward ~

"Faith can move mountains, 
but don’t be surprised if God hands you a shovel." 
~ Unknown ~

 "Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."
  ~ Helen Keller ~

"All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all that I have not seen."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
 "Faith makes things possible, not easy." 
~ Unknown ~
"Feed your faith and your fears will starve." ~ unknown ~

"What I admire in Columbus is not his having discovered a new world but his having gone to search for it on the faith of an opinion." ~ A. Robert Turgot ~

"Faith sees the invisible, 
believes the unbelievable, 
and receives the impossible."
~ Corrie Ten Boom ~

"Most of us do not understand nuclear fission, but we accept it. I don’t understand television, but I accept it. I don’t understand radio, but every week my voice goes out around the world, and I accept it. Why is it so easy to accept all these man-made miracles and so difficult to accept the miracles of the Bible?" ~ Billy Graham ~
“Therefore since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us throw off every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. ” 

If you'd like your name added to this Prayer Keeping list or my private list, please let me know and, please, don't hesitate to remind me, lest I forget.

Prayer Keeping ~ Misha ~ J ~ Linda ~ Ryan ~ Roy ~ Tonya ~ Dave ~ me ~ 
Soli Deo Gloria,


  1. The Hebrews verses are two of my favorites - turn your eyes upon Jesus! Most of life is impossible - hummingbirds, bumblebees and butterflies - cannot imagine them without having seen the reality - but you remind us well - Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

  2. "Faith can move mountains, but don’t be surprised if God hands you a shovel." ~ Unknown ~

    I love that quote! Mr. Unknown is one of my favorite authors. He's probably the most quoted author on the internet :-)

    Have a wonderful SONday :-)

  3. Beautiful share, Sandra! You moved me even more today.

    Sorry, I know I've been remiss in staying in touch ...things are settling down & I'm getting back on track.

    Hope that Dave is doing better & you are holding up ... know that you are in prayers & thought of often, my friend.

    Have a beautiful week ~
    TTFN ~


  4. Beautiful quotes. I hope you are able to get some rest.

  5. I always enjoy reading the quotes you provide for us. Each, in their own way give us hope!

    God bless! :)

  6. These sabbaths keep ticking by . . . and I am wondering how Dave is fairing these days?

    Thanks for your fun comment on Susan Branch and Glady Taber. That is great that you have all of her books. This was my first to read.


  7. Thank you Sandra for all of these great quotes and Scripture's. Without our faith we have nothing at all. Hope Dave is continuing to do better. Keeping both of you in prayer. Thank you for keeping Ryan and I on the prayer list. I know deliverance has come I'm just waiting on the manafestation of it:) Blessings my friend.

  8. I especially like that ..."but don't be surprised if He hands you a shovel." Again, thank-you for the inspiration and the humor!

  9. These are all so wonderful, Sandra~ but I especially love the scripture from Hebrews! One of my favorites!

  10. I am a collector of quotes. These are good. Thanks for sharing!
