Faith Thoughts Found

Looking back through one of the many, old, spiral notebooks I poured my thoughts into from 6th grade through college, I found a page with these sayings. Some of them have stuck by my side through the years. I put those in bold. The rest are no less meaningful. They still gave me some straight talk that I really needed to hear. I hope you enjoy them.

Faith is remembering I am God's priceless treasure when i feel utterly worthless.

When I try I fail, when I trust I succeed.

Never put a ? where God puts a .

Faith isn't faith until it's all you're holding on to.

Seek God's face, not His hands.

Nothing is or can be accidental with God.

God's answers are wiser than our prayers.

You are either leaving your mark on the world, or it is leaving it's mark on you.

Stay humble or stumble.

Our lives are never more secure than when they are abandoned to God.

Can you take it? Hammering hardens steel, but crumbles putty.

Don't plan then pray; pray then plan.

There are times when God asks nothing of His children but silence, patience and tears.

Peace of mind depends on strength of mind.

Some people talk more about their problems than praying for them.

It may be difficult to wait on the Lord, but it's worse to wish you had.

Dissappointments are all HIS appointments, so put HIM between you and your circumstances.

One of the devil's temptations is to occupy the mind with the past and future so as to neglect eh present.

No one is so empty as when he is filled with thoughts of himslef.

We die by living to ourselves. We live by dying to ourselves.

Nothing shows more accurately what we are than the way we meet trials and difficulties.
