Love people, use things. The opposite never works. Joshua fields Millburn
“Be assured that Christianity is something more than forms and creeds and ceremonies: there is life, and power, and reality, in our holy faith. If you never yet have known this, then come and taste for yourself.” –George Muller
“Why did you do all this for me?” he asked. “I don’t deserve it. I’ve never done anything for you.”
“You have been my friend,” replied Charlotte. “That in itself is a tremendous thing.”

Sour godliness is the devil’s religion.
The maxim, “‘Nothing avails but perfection,’ may be spelt shorter: ‘Paralysis.” Winston Churchill
Where does the need to be perfect come from? It’s true that if we never attempt anything beyond our certain abilities others cannot critique what we have done, or failed to do in harsh ways, but then haven’t we made them our masters?
Oh, Christian, it should not be.
If we never attempt to do anything beyond our certain abilities, where is faith?
Where is trust?
Where is journey?
Where is wonder and amazement, and the attainment of goals we have stretched ourselves to achieve?
Paralysis is unacceptable.
Better to have tried and failed than never to have tried at all.
Today, I shall not be afraid to attempt good things in this world. I shall not grow weary in doing good, and I shall never, ever, as long as I live tell anyone that they cannot do more than their certain abilities imply.
We can, and we shall, God being our helper!!!
What thing have you wanted to try, but resisted, fearing you might fail? If all resources were available to you right now, what would you do, and why?
Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.
If the world thinks you’re not good enough…get a second opinion.
