Quotes


"You're not alone in your suffering, trials or circumstances."


"One of the greatest tragedies of the Christian life is we believe in a theology that is by faith alone, but that doesn't mean we were meant to live alone."


"We've got this idea that Spiritual Disciplines are only meant to be done in isolation, but many of the disciplines were meant to be integrated."


"In following Jesus, there are great highs, great lows and boring middles, but there's a purpose in following Jesus and that's the end. Where you are now is not where you will be."


"The endurance we need comes from faith. it doesn't come for moralism or hard work, it comes from faith, which drives us towards God."


"There's a soul rest that only comes when you consider Jesus."


"There are niceties of life that just can't touch the needs of your soul."


"The key to  perseverance in this life is not self discipline, the key is faith."
