    Just about everyone has a favorite verse or saying. Mine happens to be Biblical, but there's some great, sage, sayings that are life builders as well. Mine is out of the letter to the Romans, 8:38-39
    "For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, no powers
    nor things present nor things future can separate us from the love of God which is through Christ Jesus our Lord."
    It just tells me that I am loved by God, no matter what happens. (of course there is a lessen that goes with the scripture, but that might be for a different thread)

    What's yours??

    When I start to doubt myself I remind myself "If God Be For Me Who Can Be Against ME" it reminds me that God is my source and what ever I maybe going thru it is temporary, it will pass.

    Philippians 4:6-7
    Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

    I was discussing how my attitude about worry has changed over the years with Ken just yesterday. Worry used to be something that I would allow--and sometimes encouraged--to take over at times for a strange but simple reason. I had somehow gotten the idea at one time or another that a lack of worry concerning those you love demonstrated a lack of caring; which, of course, is completely untrue.
    In fact, one is able to do more for those one cares about when at peace and not consumed with worry, so I'm happy to say that no matter how concerned I might be I spend very little time actively fretting or worrying anymore.
    When I do find myself trapped in it, though, the holy spirit reminds me to give it up in prayer and peace is restored unfailingly.
    And what a wonderful blessing it is.

    Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

    All the seven deadly sins are man's true nature. To be greedy. To be hateful. To have lust. Of course, you have to control them, but if you're made to feel guilty for being human, then you're going to be trapped in a never-ending sin-and-repent cycle that you can't escape from.

    In any story, the villain is the catalyst. The hero's not a person who will bend the rules or show the cracks in his armor. He's one-dimensional intentionally, but the villain is the person who owns up to what he is and stands by it.

    When all of your wishes are granted, many of your dreams will be destroyed.
