When all you are trying to do is the right thing, it isn't hard to act, for you have no distractions.
-William Stafford -
God’s business is putting things right;
he loves getting the lines straight,
Setting us straight. Once we’re standing tall,
we can look him straight in the eye.
- Psalm 11:7, MSG -
If you want to live a powerful life - you must choose holiness. The life God uses is a life surrendered to Him.
- John Eldredge -
Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!
- Hebrews 12:2-3, MSG -
