It’s not the silence of God that bothers me so much as the times when I know He’s speaking, but only in a whisper.


What you fear is not the thing you dread, but your inability – or God’s unwillingness – to stop or resist it.


“It was not Peter’s job to stop the storm, but to not let the storm stop him.” (Charles Awls, on Peter walking on the water)


“I fear that many strong Christian leaders err, not in their ability to retreat to a place of spiritual refuge, but in that they do not stay in that place long enough to become fully ready to fight again.” (Yolanda Baber)


“Sometimes there’s just no way out of anything, except for going through.  It hurts.  It’s scary.  It’s hard.  It’s lonely.  But we have to keep going. And we can’t always be the strong one.  It isn’t until you think you can’t take another blind step that you see a ray of light.”  (Evelyn Minjarez)


“If you want to change the world, get comfortable with the uncomfortable.” (Michael McKinney)
