Sabbath Keeping

" obey is better than sacrifice."

"Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?" ~ Corrie ten Boom ~
"Religion today is not transforming people; rather it is being transformed by the people. It is not raising the moral level of society; it is descending to society's own level, and congratulating itself that is has scored a victory because society is smiling accepting its surrender." ~ A. W. Tozer ~
"I would sooner read five lines of the Bible than hear five masses in the "Church"." 
~ Anne Askew, martyred for her faith at Smithfield in 1545 ~
"Salvation is a work of God for man, rather than a work of man for God." 
~ Lewis Sperry Chafer ~
"Do you need help today? Lift up your hands to the Lord in supplication and in expectation, and soon you will lift up your hands in jubilation and celebration." ~ Warren W. Wiersbe ~
"Let us never forget that what we are is more important than what we do." 
~ James Hudson Taylor ~
"How else but through a broken heart may Lord Christ enter in?" ~ Oscar Wilde ~
"I used to ask God to help me.
Then I asked if I might help Him.
I ended up by asking Him to do his work through me."
"No one who really wants to count for God can afford to play at Christianity."
~ H. A. Ironside
"The acid test of our love for God is obedience to His Word." ~ Bob Jones, Sr. ~
"To be like Christ is to be a Christian." ~ Daniel Webster ~
"People who are crucified with Christ have three distinct marks:
1. they are facing only one direction,
2. they can never turn back, and
3. they no longer have plans of their own."
"God sends no one away empty except those who are full of themselves." 
~ Dwight L. Moody ~
And Satan trembles when he sees, 
The weakest saint upon his knees."
"A faith that hasn't been tested can't be trusted." ~ Adrian Rogers ~

"Cast your cares upon Him
for He cares for you."

If you'd like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know. Names are kept for one week; around the world, people are praying.

Prayer Keeping ~ unspoken requests ~


  1. Moody's quote is my favorite here. I think it's related to the scripture about being poor in spirit. If we realize our own emptiness, and rid our hearts of self, God can fit more of His Holy Spirit in there. Something I can only theorize about, I'm afraid....oh, and pray about.

  2. I meant to ask, what are those sprouts pushing up through the snow? They are thrilling!

  3. I so appreciate the considerable time you must spend assembling these quotes for us each week; I am ALWAYS blessed!

  4. Oh -You always have such wonderful quotes. Thank you for taking the time to put those posts together for us. If you reach just one person and touch their heart you are paid in full. I loved this one:
    "And Satan trembles when he sees,
    The weakest saint upon his knees."

    Have a wonderful upcoming week-xo Diana

    Hi Sandra, I, too, appreciate the time you take to group together these quotes. Wishing you a day full of blessings.

  6. Thanks for using an Adrian Rogers quote - I miss his tv sermons (new ones - old ones are still on) - great selections today

  7. These sentences awoke in my soul again, how important it is, to obey God and His true servants. To obey Him is the shurest way in our life. Thank you, Thistle1

    I admire and I am astonished about the photo with the coming flowers in the snow!

  8. Thanks so much for your Sabbath posting. I don't always see them but try to catch up when I have a moment...This one especially spoke to my heart. May the Lord richly bless you!


Thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm; may God bless you, yours and the work of your hands and heart. My goal is to respond, here, to your comments although it may take a while.
