Sabbath Keeping


"You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you."
~ Isaiah 26:3 ~

"Faith don't come in a bushel basket, Missy. It come one step at a time. Decide to trust Him for one little thing today, and before you know it, you find out He's so trustworthy you be putting your whole life in His hands." ~ Lynn Austin ~

"We have very little faith in the Lord, very little trust. If we trusted the Lord as much as we trust a friend when we ask him to do something for us. neither we as individuals nor our whole country would suffer so much."
~ Thaddeus of Vitovnica ~

"Fear is the glue that keeps you stuck.
Faith is the solvent that sets you free."
~ Shannon L. Alder

"Trust God or worry. Those are the two choices you have in every situation. Trust God and be at peace. Worry and experience stress. Your choices are that simple and you will make you life as peaceful or stressful as you choose to make it. Trust God and be at peace. This is all that is asked of you."
~ James Blanchard ~

"The hardest part of letting go is the "uncertainty"--when you are afriad that the moment you let of of someone you will hate yourself when you find out how close you were to winning their affection. Every time you give yourself hope you steal away a part of your time, happiness and future. However, once in a while you wake up to this realization and you have to hold on tightly to this truth because your heart will tear away the foundation of your logic, by making excuses for why this person doesn't try as much as you. The truth is this: Real love is simple. We are the ones that make it complicated. A part of disconnecting is recognizing the difference between being desires and being valued. When someone loves you they will never keep you waiting, give their attention and affection away to others, allow you to continue hurting, or ignore what you have gone through for them. On the other hand, a person that desires you can't see your pain, only what they can get from you with minimal effort in return. They let you risk everything, while they guard their heart and reap the benefits of your feelings. We make so many excuses for the people we fall in love with and they make up even more to remain one foot in the door. However, the truth is God didn't create you to be treated as an option or to be disrespected repeatedly. He wants you to close the door. If someone loves you and wants to be in your life no obstacle will keep them from you. Remember, you are royalty, not a beggar." ~ Shannon L. Alder ~

"One may have an abundance of faith in God,
but do we trust Him when we don't understand?
What good is faith without trust?"
~ Danny L. Deaube

"The reason some of us are such poor specimens of Christianity
is because we have no Almighty Christ.
We have Christian attributes and experiences,
but there is no abandonment to Jesus Christ."
~ Oswald Chambers ~

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. 

I do not give to you as the world gives. 
Do not let your hearts be troubled,

trust in God and also in me."
~ John 14: 27 ~
