Here’s a few words of encouragement I have collected this week

Gradually I have learned to recognize this hemming-in as one of God’s loving devices for teaching us that He is real and gloriously adequate for our problems. ~ Catherine Marshall

God’s delay in answering the prayer of our longing heart is the most loving thing God can do. He may be waiting for us to come closer to Him, prostrate ourselves at His feet and abide there in trustful submission, that His granting of the long-for answer may mean infinitely greater blessing than if we received it anywhere else than in the dust of His feet. ~ springs in the valley

O man, I beseech you do not treat God’s promises as if they were curiosities for a museum; but use them as everyday sources of comfort. Trust the Lord whenever your time of need comes on. ~ Spurgeon

When man listens, God speaks;

When man obeys, God acts;

When God acts, men change.

~Mary Geegh

He never limits us, except to liberate us. ~ anonymous
