Trying to Tell Me Something

I have a little stand-up booklet of quotes displayed in my kitchen . . . with a new quote or Bible verse to read each day of the year. This week God's really been speaking to me through it. I have been encouraged by this booklet so much in the past, I just can't bear to part with it.

Here's what I've read this week. I hope these words will encourage you too.

We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts.
A.W. Tozer

Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. In the boredom and pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are
key moments and life itself is grace.

Frederick Buechner

I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.
Jeremiah 31:3 NRSV

God waits for us in the inner sanctuary of the soul. He welcomes us there.
Richard J. Foster

God's will for my life is not a neat box on the path, but the path itself--a pilgrimage to be discovered by trust and obedience.
Gloria Gaither

Every day we live is a priceless gift of God, loaded with possibilities to learn something new, to gain fresh insights.
Dale Evans Rogers

These are all very encouraging, aren't they? Thanks for sharing these today Kimmy! And thank you for thinking of me today. I am doing well. I didn't sleep much last night thinking about my dad and remembering getting that phone call at 12:15 in the morning letting me know he was gone. But even though I miss him I rejoice that he is in Heaven!
