Truth and Inspiration

“When you complain, you make yourself a victim.  Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept it.  All else is madness.” – Eckhart Tolle

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” 

–Anais Nin

“In repentance and rest is your salvation. In quietness and trust is your strength.” Isaiah 30:15

Begone, unbelief,

  My Savior is near,

And for my relief

  Will surely appear;

By prayer let me wrestle,

  And He will perform;

With Christ in the vessel,

  I smile at the storm.

-Hymn (Words by John Newton)

Lord, right now I struggle with clutching fear.

Waves of agony pour over me as I face the darkest moments in my life’s history.

But my conviction still stands firm: You are my God!

And though I cannot predict my future or even my tomorrow

I am sustained by the reminder that the longest storm the world has ever known…and the worst…came to an end one clear-sky morning.

It was true for Noah, it will be true for me.

Though as yet I see no deliverance

I watch

I wait

I expect

my personal rainbow.

-Ruth Calkin

“Bear not a single care thyself,
One is too much for thee;
The work is Mine, and Mine alone;

Thy work — to rest in me.”

– Hudson Taylor
