More great quotes from my journals. All the small things mentioned below seem small, but end up being very big and powerful–wisdom, sleep, prayer, love, worship. Mountains look tiny until you get up close enough to climb them. It all depends upon your perspective.
Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver and her profit better than gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her. Proverbs 3:13-15 (ESV)
Sleep is a daily reminder from God that we are not God…I conclude that God made sleep as a continual reminder that we should not be anxious but should rest in Him. — John Piper
The restraint of God’s discipline (Eph. 6:4), the demonstration of God’s love (Col. 3:21), and the power of prayer (Job 1:5), God has ordained, regularly and normally, to work through these means for the salvation of the children of believers. For this Chris died. Christian parents honor the blood of Jesus when they follow His ways for the sake of their children. — John Piper
We can do no great things, only small things with great love. — Mother Teresa
Worship is the act of magnifying God. Enlarging our vision of Him. Stepping into the cockpit to see where He sits and observe how He works. Of course, His size doesn’t change, but our perception of Him does. As we draw nearer, He seems larger. Isn’t that what we need? A big view of God? — Max Lucado, Grace for the Moment
