Words of Wisdom
I have held many things in my hands,
and I have lost them all;
but whatever I have placed in God’s hands,
that I still possess.
This is the secret of joy.
We shall no longer strive for our own way;
but commit ourselves, easily and simply, to God’s way,
acquiesce in his will and in so doing find our peace.
We are not sent primarily to be missionaries, pastors, teachers
or any other kind of worker.
It isn’t the office I hold that signifies my service,
but the way in which my Heavenly Father is glorified
in the common things of my life.
There are little “nobodies” scattered around the world,
whose lives radiate and glorify God,
whose daily doings bring joy to the angels of heaven––
and yet in the eyes of this world they are still nobodies.
John E. Hunter
God has created me to do Him some definite service.
He has committed some work to me that he has not committed to another.
I have my mission.
I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.
He has not created me for nothing.
Therefore, I will trust him.
He does nothing in vain.
He knows what he is doing.
John Henry Newman
It must not be forgotten that the first Christmas song was sung in the night….
That is a comforting fact.
When the world is dark, the light shines, not from among men but from heaven.
Cleland B. McAfee
It is good to be children sometimes,
and never better than at Christmas,
when its mighty Founder was a Child himself.
