Three from Joni

30 Jan

Deny your weakness, and you will never realize God’s strength in you.

Jesus is strong…but He’s also approachable. He is able to carry our load…but He’ll never make us feel embarrassed or defeated for asking.

Whatever troubles are weighing you down are not chains. They are featherweight when compared to the glory yet to come. With a sweep of a prayer and the praise of a child’s heart, God can strip away any cobweb.

A Glorious Thing

12 Dec

It is a glorious thing to know that your Father God makes no mistakes in directing or permitting that which crosses the path of your life. It is the glory of God to conceal a matter. It is our glory to trust Him, no matter what.

Just Think

14 Nov

Every promise God has ever made finds its fulfillment in Jesus. God doesn’t just give us grace, He gives us Jesus, the Lord of grace. If it’s peace; it’s only found in Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Even life itself is found in the Resurrection and the Life. Christianity isn’t all that complicated… it’s Jesus.
