Crumbs – Making Sense in a Senseless World

“I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how he could look up into the heavens and say there is no God.” Abraham Lincoln

 

“Give me Father, a purpose deep,

In joy or sorrow Thy word to keep;

Faithful and true what e’er the strife,

Pleasing Thee in my daily life;

Only one life, ’twill soon be past,

Only what’s done for Christ will last.”

C. T. Studd Only One Life

                                                 

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27

                                                                                                                                                  

“Peace on the outside comes from knowing God on the inside.” Author Unknown

                             “I am reminded of a quote from Eric Liddle in the inspiring movie, Chariots of Fire when he said ‘I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.’ That is a good starting place as you ponder the question, ‘What is my purpose?’” Janice LaVore-Fletcher  

 

                     “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:6-7

“Without self-control, our lives tend to be chaotic, suppressed, influenced by evil, and self-centered. Living in the power of the Holy Spirit is a full recognition to surrender to the Gospel of Christ; an ability to obey the Word of God in our lives and to hear what God may be saying through our circumstances, trials, and temptations. We, ourselves, through daily submission to the Holy Spirit, walk by faith, and not by sight with perseverance and strength from the Almighty God. Therefore, walk in the power of the Holy Spirit by enacting an obedient faith to Christ. Listen to the Spirit’s voice for direction, read the Word of God for guidance, and witness God’s hand in mission all around you.” Matthew Fretwell

“Your life, woven day by day is a new design, of the glory God displays
On the canvas of creation, through the poem of history
In pattern of redemption, running through the tapestry
Your life in Christ can be the greatest story ever told.” Avalon’s chorus to The Greatest Story

“We cannot do the things we long to do, so our tendency is to think of our dreams and aspirations as dead . . . . When God sends His inspiration, it comes to us with such miraculous power that we are able to ‘arise from the dead’ and do the impossible.” Oswald Chambers                                                         

 “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21

Happy 4th of July! One way we can honor those who fought for our independence is to :
