“If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with. There’s no place like home. . . .”  L. Frank Baum, Dorothy in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

“It sounds to me, young one,” Haddek said, “that you are searching for something that cannot be found.”

“The truth?” Sazed said.

“No”, Haddek replied. “A religion that requires no faith of its believers.  Brandon Sanderson

 Mother Teresa

“Go to God and have an understanding. Tell Him that it is your desire to be holy at any cost and then ask Him never to give you more happiness than holiness. When your holiness becomes tarnished, let your joy become dim. And ask Him to make you holy whether you are happy or not. Be assured that in the end you will be as happy as you are holy; but for the time being let your whole ambition be to serve God and be Christlike.” A. W. Tozer

 “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go, he’s the one who will keep you on track.” Proverbs 3:5-6  The Message

stubborn mule

 God doesn’t want to lead with a bridle like a horse or a mule that has to be reigned in. He wants to lead you intelligently by the Holy Spirit according to the Word.                 Psalm 32:8-9

 “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: “I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.” That is the one thing we must not say. A man who said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”  C. S. Lewis from Mere Christianity

“As I read, my suspicion that Jesus might really be the Messiah was confirmed.”         Jay Alan Sekulow
