Once again here are a few quotes for our minds (& hearts) to munch on tonight.
“In the bitter waves of woe,
Beaten and tossed about
By the sullen winds that blow
From the desolate shores of doubt,
When the anchors that faith had cast
Are dragging in the gale,
I am quietly holding fast
To the things that cannot fail…
William Gladden (1836-1918)
“Why do you say, O Jacob, and complain, O Israel, my way is hidden from the Lord, my cause is disregarded by my God? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of heaven and earth. He does not grow tired or weary and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases power to the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as on eagles, they shall walk and not be weary, they shall run and not faint.” Isaiah 40:27-31
“Jesus in your heart! Eternity in your mind!
The will of God in all your actions!
But, above all, love, God’s love, entire love!”
Saint Catherine of Genoa
May God strengthen our faith to hold on to His love & mercy when the waves of life’s challenges crush our spirits… may our hearts rise up with wings of grace & unquenchable joy as we wait on the Lord to blaze a path through our dark valleys.
God is with us. Who are we to be afraid?
grace, peace & faith
