Welcome to The Week In Words, where we share quotes from the last week’s reading. If something you read this past week inspired you, caused you to laugh, cry, think, dream, or just resonated with you in some way, please share it with us, attributing it to its source, which can be a book, newspaper, blog, Facebook — anything that you read. More information is here.
Here are a few that spoke to me this week:
From a friend’s Facebook:
Some pursue happiness, others create it.
From another friend’s Facebook:
God doesn’t merely want a change of habit. He wants a change of heart, which will lead to a change of habit.
Seen at Challies:
Trials and tribulations are very good for us in that they help us to know ourselves better than we knew ourselves before. —D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Among the many purposes God has for suffering, this is one. Usually, for me anyway, I discover a deficiency in myself or some new way in which I need to trust in or yield to the Lord more.
And, actually, I heard this first rather than read it, but then I wrote it down and then read it.
God does not love us because we’re valuable; we’re valuable because God loves us. ~ Adrian Rogers
If you’ve read anything that particularly spoke to you that you’d like to share, please either list it in the comments below or write a post on your blog and then put the link to that post (not your general blog link) in Mr. Linky below. I do ask that only family-friendly quotes be included. I hope you’ll visit some of the other participants as well and glean some great thoughts to ponder.
And please — feel free to comment even if you don’t have quotes to share!
