Sabbath Keeping

~ Morris Knob, Tazewell County, VA ~

"Be not wise in thine own eyes;
fear the Lord,
and depart from evil."
Proverbs 3:7 ~

"Lord I know not what to ask of Thee; 
Thou knowest what I need;
Thou lovest me better than I know how to love myself.
O Father, give to Thy child that which he himself knows not how to ask. 
I dare not ask either for crosses or for consolations; 
I simply present myself before Thee. 
I open my heart to Thee.
Behold my needs which I know not myself; 
see and do according to Thy tender mercy...

The expression of Christian character is not good doing, but God-likeness. God's life in us expresses itself as God's life, not as human life trying to be godly."
Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest ~

"Knowledge of God's word is a bulwark 
against deception, temptation, accusation,
even persecution. 
Edwin Louis Cole ~

"What men stand most in need of, is the knowledge of God." 
~ Fenelon ~

"Be the type of person who leaves a mark...not a scar."
 ~ unknown ~

"True wisdom consists in two things: 
knowledge of God and knowledge of self." ~ John Calvin ~ 

"The world is perishing for lack of the knowledge of God 
and the church is famishing for want of His presence." 
A. W. Tozer 

"I hold that we have a very imperfect knowledge of the works of nature till we view them as works of God, - not only as works of mechanism, but works of intelligence, not only as under laws, but under a lawgiver, wise and good."
James McCosh ~

"Of all treasures of knowledge,
the most vital is the knowledge of God,
His existence, powers, love and promises."
Spencer W. Kimbell ~ 

"God will not suffer man to have the knowledge of things to come; for if he had prescience of his prosperity, he would be careless; and, understanding of his adversity, he would senseless." ~ Saint Augustine ~

"Sometimes you're delayed where you are
Because God knows there's a storm where you're headed."
unknown ~

"Nothing reveals character more than self-sacrifice. So the highest knowledge we have of God is through the gift of His Son." ~ William Torrey Harris ~ 

"Refuse to be content with just the knowledge of God.
But insist on experiencing His presence.
Kerri Weems ~

"People will always have opinions about you.
But you live for God, because He's the only one
Who has intimate knowledge of you."
unknown ~ 

"For this very reason,
make every effort to add to your faith goodness;
and to goodness, knowledge. ..."

Do you have a name to be added to the prayer list?

~ Prayer Keeping ~ Roy ~ GJ and Bill ~ Peggy ~ Pat ~ Anne ~ Vicky ~ Sandra ~ 


  1. We didn't make it to church this morning, so I found myself reading your quotes and scriptures in this post. What another great selection...many I have added to my journal. Prayers continue for signs of spring at Thistle Cove Farm and that soon, someone will see the beauty and joy of your property and wish to call it home!

  2. Thank you for the aptly selected quotes, Sandra. I hope you are well and resting a bit.

  3. So many quotes here today that hold precious meaning to me now. I love especially the Fenelon and the author unknown. Going to copy & paste them for myself for later referral and comfort.

    I hope you're well Sandra and spring has finally returned to Thistle Cove to encourage & uplift you. ( and maybe show a buyer how amazing Thistle cove is ! )

  4. Great post! I love that first quote by Francois de Salginac de la Mothe-Fenelon.

    I hope you are seeing less snow and more green and colors there at Thistle Cove Farm.

    Happy Spring ~ FlowerLady

  5. I always look forward to your quotes. They are a blessing!


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.
