Today’s Quote on Strength

“Some situations sap every drop of energy we have and demand still more. When we can’t take another step, Christ will carry us through. Our weakness brings us to a place of humility and lets God demonstrate His power in us. Only then do we find the energy, courage, and peace we need to go on living for His glory.”     ~Dr. Charles Stanley

Today’s Quote on Trials

“In every trial, we have a choice to view the situation from our perspective or from God’s. Depending on our focus, we either react emotionally or respond spiritually, based on God’s Word and promises. Inner turmoil and outward agitation result when we focus on feelings instead of spiritual principles. But when we habitually see every matter from God’s point of view, then irritation, anger, and blame will be replaced by an inner quietness and confidence.”     ~Dr. Charles Stanley

Today’s Quote on Gentleness
