Apples Of Gold 2Proverbs 25:11: A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
When we put limits on what we will do for God, we put limits on how much He can bless us. Whatever line we draw in the sand that we will not cross for Him, the greatest blessings are on the other side of it.
John 10:27: My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: Psalms 23:6: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. When you follow the Lord, goodness and mercy follow you. What better place to be than right between God and goodness and mercy.

Colossians 4:2a: Continue in prayer, . . . Alexander Whyte:
The greatest and best talent that God gives to any man or woman in this world is the talent of prayer. And the best usury that any man or woman brings back to God when He comes to reckon with them at the end of this world is a life of prayer. And those servants best put their Lord*s money to the exchangers who rise early and sit late, as long as they are in this world, ever finding out, and ever following after better and better methods of prayer, and ever forming more secret, more steadfast, and more spiritually fruitful habits of prayer, till they literally pray without ceasing, and till they continually strike out into new enterprises in prayer, and new achievements, and new enrichments.
Prayer is not a spare wheel that you pull out when in trouble, it is a steering wheel that directs the right path throughout.

All things in life are temporary. If it*s going well, enjoy it, that won*t last long. If it*s going badly, don*t worry, that won*t last long either.
Old friends are gold! New friends are diamonds! If you get a diamond, don*t forget the gold! Because to hold a diamond, you always need a base of gold!
Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, God smiles from above and says, Relax, sweetheart, it*s just a bend, not the end!
When God solves your problems, you have faith in His abilities; when He doesn*t solve your problems, He has faith in your abilities.
A blind person asked St. Anthony, Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight? He replied, Yes, losing your vision!
When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them; sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.
Worrying does not take away tomorrow*s troubles, it takes away today*s peace.
No man can serve two masters, especially if one of them is himself.
Peter Marshall said:
If you are too busy to pray, you are busier than you have any right to be.
