Crumbs – God’s Learning Curve



    Queen Esther, A Woman of Courage

“There is in every true woman’s heart a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity; but which kindles up, and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.” Washington Irving, The Sketch Book, 1820

        Mary, a Woman of Sacrifice

“The worst thing that can happen to any of us is to have a path that’s made too smooth. One of the greatest blessings the Lord ever gave us was a cross.” Charles Spurgeon

                                        Mary, (Martha’s sister), a Woman Eager to Learn

“How God guides is his responsibility. Ours is to keep informed and listening.” Oswald Chambers

                         Rahab, a Woman of Action        

“And how can you achieve such concentration? By recognizing that everything you do is important to God, and is one vital piece of the larger picture of your life. “ Menachem Mendel Schneerson   

                 Hannah, a Woman of Faith

“What is your first response when an unexpected problem arises? Do you immediately bring it to the Lord, or do you resort to worrying, maneuvering, or trying to figure out how to handle it yourself? We are told repeatedly in the Scriptures to come to God with our requests (Phil. 4:6). Asking Him for help shows that our attitude is one of humble dependence and not prideful self-reliance. Even if we have the resources to take care of ourselves, we should still recognize that everything we have comes from Him.”           Dr. Charles Stanley

                                                                         Jochebed, a Woman of Love

“Experiencing God in a difficult situation will turn the difficult situation into a wonderful opportunity and gift. During the difficult situation, try to focus on God and His absolute love for you. Allow yourself to feel this absolute love. Let it flow through your body. Let it touch your heart. Realize that God is not there because it is a difficult situation, but that God is there because He has always been there. You see it as a difficult situation, but God sees only your growth. In the moment, focus on fear, or focus on God’s love for you. You have free will and it is your choice to make. In the moment you can focus on one or the other but not both. The choice is yours. Choosing fear will offer you anxiety, stress, confusion, pain and regret. Choosing love will offer you peace of mind and joy. Choose as you will.”  James Blanchard Cisneros

                      Abigail, a Woman of Wisdom     

“When written in Chinese the word “crisis” is composed of two characters – one represents danger and the other represents opportunity.” John F. Kennedy

                                                 Elizabeth, a Woman of Devotion

“Maturity is produced in the life of a child of God on the unconscious level, until we become so totally surrendered to God that we are not even aware of being used by Him. . . A saint is never consciously a saint—a saint is consciously dependent on God.” Oswald Chambers



“May your days be many and your troubles be few. May all God’s blessings descend upon you. May peace be within you. May your heart be strong. May you find what you’re seeking wherever you roam.” Irish Blessing
