"I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God;
than to dwell in the tents of ungodliness."
~ Psalm 84:10 ~

"He who lays up treasurers on earth spends his life backing away from his treasurers. To him, death is loss. He who lays up treasures in heaven look forward to eternity; he's moving daily toward his treasures. To him, death is gain." ~ Randy Alcorn ~
"We may speak about a place where there are no tears, no death, no fear, no night;
but those are just the benefits of heaven. The beauty of heaven is seeing God." ~ Max Lucado ~
"There are no unique postures and times and limitations that restrict our access to God. My relationship with God is intimate and personal. The Christian does not go to the temple to worship. The Christian takes the temple with him or her. Jesus lifts us beyond the building and pays the human body the highest compliment by making it His dwelling place, the place where He meets with us. Even today He would overturn the tables of those who make it a marketplace for their own lust, greed and wealth." ~ Ravi Zacharias ~
"Believers are never told to become one;
we already are one and are expected to act like it."
~ Joni Eareckson Tada ~
"God never said the journey would be easy,
but He did say the arrival would be worthwhile."
~ Max Lucado ~
"Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter." ~ Francis Chan ~
"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep,
to gain what he cannot lose."
~ Jim Elliott ~
"Remember who you are. Don't compromise for anyone, for any reason. You are a child of the Almighty God. Live that truth." ~ Lysa Terkeurst ~
"The Christian says, 'Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger; well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire: well, there is such a thing as sex. If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probably explanation is that I was made for another world. If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it, that does not prove that the universe is a fraud. Probably earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it, but only to arouse it, to suggest the real thing. If that is so, I must take care, on the one hand, never to despise, or to be unthankful for, these earthly blessings, and on the other, never to mistake hem for the something else of which they are only a kind of copy, or echo, or mirage. I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country, which I shall not find till after death; I must never let it get snowed under or turned aside; I must make it the main object of life to press on to that country and to help others do the same."
~ C. S. Lewis ~
"In my Father's house are many mansions,
if it were not so, I would not have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you."
~ John 14:2 ~
