A Collection of 'thoughts'

Greetings All,

Instead of my usual 'thought' from only one particular author, I have decided to send out a collection of 'thoughts' from many different authors. Every one will not apply directly to your situation, but each one will offer you food for thought, and supply you with a helpful insight.  I trust they might speak a word to your soul.  Enjoy.

"Worrying is like a rocking chair; it gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you anywhere."   Unknown

"Unforgiveness is like drinking a glass of poison and expecting the other person to die."  Unknown
"He who counts the stars and calls each one by name is in no danger of forgetting His own children. He knows your case as thoroughly as if you were the only creature He ever made, or the only saint He ever loved."    Charles Spurgeon

"Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God's grace, and your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God's grace."     Jerry Bridges 
"It is pleasing to God whenever you rejoice or laugh from the bottom of your heart."   Martin Luther

"The thought of You [Lord] stirs us so deeply that we cannot be content unless we praise You.  Because You have made us for Yourself, our hearts find no rest until they rest in You."      St. Augustine
"When I think upon my God, my heart is so full of joy that the notes dance and leap from my pen."    Composer Joseph Haydn

"The day you find anything more beautiful than Jesus is the day you can know you never knew Jesus."     John Hannah

"God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there.  There is no such thing."   C. S. Lewis

"Happy is the one who has learned to hold the things of this world with a loose grip. Of all classes and descriptions of persons on this earth, they are the happiest of whom it may be said that the things most hoped for by them are the things that cannot be seen."         Early Mennonite Writings
"The most spectacular answers to prayer have come when I was so helpless, and so out of control, as to be able to do nothing at all for myself."  Catherine Marshall

"Keep praying, but be thankful that God's answers are wiser than your prayers."    William Culbertson
"If you believe what you like in the Gospel, and reject what you don't, it is not the Gospel you believe, but yourself."   Augustine of Hippo

"The greatest honor we can give to God is to live gladly because of the knowledge of His love."         Lady Julian of Norwich

Blessings upon your day,  Pastor Jeff
