A believing life (19): Too greatly loved

“…good news to all who will heed the call of a God who chooses us. No longer do we need to be achievement-driven; we were not chosen because of some special ability or gifting. No longer do we need to please people for a sense of acceptance; we are the apple of God’s eye. No longer do we need to fear the future, for we are held in the arms of one who holds everything in kind and able hands. Despair and defeat need not rule our lives—not because we are go-getters and succeed at all costs—but because we are confident that God is using all that happens in our lives to weave a beautiful tapestry.” – RZIM

“I may care about myself till I grow morbid; I may watch over my own feelings till I feel nothing; and I may lament my own weakness till I grow almost too weak to lament. It will be far more profitable for me to become unselfish and out of love to my LORD Jesus begin to care for the souls of those around me.” – Spurgeon

“Once we give our worries to God, He doesn’t want us to worry  about how He is going to take care of our worries. He is Almighty and knows how to take care of us and we can leave the details with Him.” – Roy Lessin (Meet Me In The Meadow)

“My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” – Ps 73:26 (NASB)

“But if any of you lack wisdom, you should pray to God, who will give it to you; because God gives generously and graciously to all.” – James 1:5 (GNT)
