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 ministered to me this week:
From a friend’s Facebook:
“Unerring wisdom ordained your lot and selected for you the safest and best condition. Remember this -had any condition been better for you than the one in which you are, divine love would have put you there. You are placed by God in the most suitable circumstances. Be content with such good things as you have, since the Lord has ordered all things for your good.” ~ C. H. Spurgeon
This spoke to me on so many levels. I had to just sit and think through it for a while.
Sherry at Semicolon shared this quote from Corrie ten Boom in A Hiding Place:
Profound, from one who lived it.
A quote from a former pastor, now with the Lord:
May I live as much as possible without grieving Him and be quick to repent when I do.
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!
