Recently Aaron has handed over responsibility of what goes on our church sign to me. Usually it has been an upcoming event or what the latest sermon series is, but we have been wanting to add in some quotes as well. So my dear husband thought my creative mind could come up with some quote fodder.
Last week I came up with,
“Season your life with grace. It’s like sugar for the soul.”
The sermons have been centered on grace recently. Grace makes life sweeter. It has since been pointed out that sugar is also bad for you. However, sugar sounds better than protein! You get the gist!
This week I have submitted,
“Love and grace are like salt and pepper. They need to be passed on together.”
Get it? I’m one of those people that was taught and firmly believe that salt and pepper shakers are married and must always be passed together. Grace and love are the same. You really need to share both together for the full effect!
Just some thoughts as we begin the week.
What are some short quotes about faith you live by?
Care to share them?
It just might end up on our church’s sign for all of Muldrow and Roland, OK to see! (With permission of course!)
I saw this on Facebook and just had to share it with my other friends and family who are in ministry.
Can I get an AMEN?
More money always gives a bit more breathing room for creature comforts, and we’d love to be able to give, give, give, but we know that money is not in ministry. That’s not the point.
We feel called to see broken lives restored to fullness in Christ, and that is the richest reward we could ever hope for.
So for all of you called to a life in ministry, blessings as you journey on and remember to keep your eyes on Christ, not the pay stub!
As I was pinning my way across the web this evening, I kept coming across numerous quotes on passion. By the late Steve Jobs, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” While the quote does not directly mention passion, but I believe that is the essence of what he was saying. Be passionate about what you do and you will do great things. Don’t settle! This spoke volumes to me as I find myself still struggling with what my purpose is in this life. Who am I? What is my calling? What am I equipped, called, and gifted to do and be? What am I passionate about? I’m 30 and I don’t know what I’ll be when I grow up. So I’ll look at this quote and remind myself that when I find it, I will know it in my heart, and I won’t settle until then.
The other quote that jumped out and clung to my heart was one by T. Alan Armstrong I found on a blog. I was searching blog ideas as I so desperately want to revamp and revitalize this little started blog of mine. Over at Smart Boy Designs I found some great advice on starting a blog; from naming it to what to blog about. The biggest piece of advice he had to share was be passionate about your subject. This is where the quote was and of course it spoke more deeply to my soul than a mere piece of blogging advice. Loved the quote and stuck it with a graphic little image of a girl reaching for hope.
Pursue your Passion- T. Alan Armstrong
I’ve always used passionate as one of the words to describe myself, but this quote really made me stop and think. What have I been passionate about lately? Sadly, I’d have to say not much of consequence. So where do I find my passion again?
Where is the source of my strength? Is my faith full of passion? Have I settled for a lackluster relationship with God?
I think the source of finding my passion and the answers to my purpose lie in reigniting a passionate faith and authentic relationship with the Author of Life.
Wonder if He wants to meet for coffee?
