Quotes from the Past

Over the last ten years of my walk with Christ, I have collected quotes from books I have read, sermons I have listened to, conferences I have been to, and just anything I have heard that has struck my fancy.

I thought today I would share some of those with you. I have filled all the blank pages in my Bible with them so that I have them close to me when I need a reminder of why God asked me to do something for Him.

"For me, trusting is learning to breathe during the fall. Trusting is believing with my whole life that God will catch me. He promises to keep His promises. He is able. He is strong.
