Crumbs – Positive Faith Overcomes Limitations

     When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.  Thomas Jefferson

What is the essence of America?  Finding and maintaining that perfect, delicate balance between freedom “to” and freedom “from.”   Marilyn vos Savant

                                                                                                         

Argue for your limitations and, sure enough, they’re yours.  Richard Bach, Illusions

                                                                                                                                                    

Life is full of obstacle illusions.  Grant Frazier

                                  

One of the secrets of life is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks.  Jack Penn

                                                                                                                     

Don’t let the past steal your present.  Terri Guillemets

The past is a guidepost, not a hitching post.  L. Thomas Holdcroft

                                                                                                   

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years.  We grow old by deserting our ideals.  Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.  Samuel Ullman

  You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.  Douglas MacArthur

You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith.  Mary Manin Morrissey

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Ephesians 6:16

                                                                                                                        

 “Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it.  Strip down, start running—and never quit!  No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins.  Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in.  Study how he did it.  Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: cross, shame, whatever.  And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God.  When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through.  That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!”      Hebrews 12:1-3  The Message
