Sabbath Keeping

"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path."
~ Psalms 119:105 ~

"Do more of what it takes to make you holy." 
"Don't ask God to guide your footsteps if you're not willing to move your feet."
"The true contemplative is not one who prepares his mind for a particular message that he wants or expects to hear, but is one who remains empty because he knows that he can never expect to anticipate the words that will transform his darkness into light. He does not even anticipate a special kind of transformation. He does not demand light instead of darkness. He waits on the Word of God in silence, and, when he is answered it is not so much by a word that bursts into his silence. It is by his silence itself, suddenly, inexplicably revealing itself to him as a word of great power, full of the voice of God." 
~ Thomas Merton
"Put some feet to those prayers." 
~ Gladys Bennett ~
"If you cut him (John Bunyan), he'd bleed Scripture!" ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
"God can heal your broken heart 
but you must give Him the pieces."
"It is fashionable in some academic circles to exercise scholarly criticism of the Bible. In so doing, scholars place themselves above the Bible and seek to correct it. If indeed the Bible is the Word of God, nothing could be more arrogant. It is God who corrects us; we don't correct Him. We do not stand over God but under him." ~ R. C. Sproul
"Sometimes you're delayed 
because God knows there's danger ahead." 
~ Sandra Bennett ~
"We must allow the word of God to confront us, to disturb our security, to undermine our complacency and to overthrow our patterns of thought and behavior." 
~ John R. W. Stott ~
"Don't judge someone 
because they sin differently than you."
"I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven." ~ A. W. Tozer
"Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." ~ Apostle Paul ~
"May you trust God 
that you are exactly where you are meant to be." 

"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."

If you'd like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know. Names will be kept for one week, then we begin again. Around the world, people are praying.

  1. Good Afternoon. A beautiful post. Remembering you in prayer. I am thankful to report that all of the blog friends I have requested prayer for are home this weekend. Thank you Lord for answered prayers.

  2. I love the words you share today. I'm bursting into song. (Thank you!)

  3. These sayings are truly praise worthy. I especially like the "Don't judge someone because they sin differently than you." It's a "get the log out of your own eye first type of scenerio. Good advice.
    Hope you're enjoying a blessed day. ~:)

  4. Full of wisdom and virtue-flowers of words! Thank you!

    GREAT: "Sometimes you're delayed
    because God knows there's danger ahead."

  5. "Don't judge someone
    because they sin differently than you." There's a wise quote among many! Thank you.

  6. great philosopher there ~Sandra Bennett~ - those road delays are usually for our good and we seldom choose first "for our good" - we honk our horns and make faces or worse hand gestures - then somewhere in our far too human minds come "oh yeah - for my good huh?"
    as always timely reminders Sandra - have a blessed week

  7. i LOVE the quote, "don't judge someone
    because they sin differently than you."

    sorry my link didn't work. i was in too
    much of a hurry and haven't had time to
    fix it . . . .

  8. Mildred, thank God for answered prayer!

    Karen, glad I could add to your happy quota.

    Sparky, that one grabbed my attention as well. ahem.

    Dori, so true!

    Jodi, it was a good one.

    LindaSue, best when we go according to His time and schedule. I'm getting better about not rushing ahead. Yes, I am.

    Lea, that one spoke to my heart.
