He takes the junk of our lives



"I grew up hearing everyone tell me 'God loves you'.
I would say big deal -- God loves everybody. That don't make me special!
That just proves that God ain't got no taste.
And I don't think He does. Thank God!
Because He takes the junk of our lives and He makes the most beautiful art of it."
~Rich Mullins

A larger hope



"The small and even overpowering pains of our lives are intimately connected
with the greater pains of Christ.
Our daily sorrows are anchored in a greater sorrow, and therefore a larger hope."
~Henri Nouwen

What You want to give me






"Dear God,
I am so afraid to open my clenched fists!
Who will I be when I have nothing left to hold on to?
Who will I be when I stand before you with empty hands?
Please help me to gradually open my hands
and to discover that I am not what I own,
but what You want to give me."
~Henri Nouwen

Trying to have a bright day



"Trying to be happy without a sense of God’s presence is like trying to 
have a bright day without the sun."
