If you have a favorite number please feel free to let me know in the comment section. Feel free to copy and share these at your pleasure.

  2.   Millions of hammers have been worn out on the anvil of God’s Holy Word.
  3. Many times the second journey in God’s will for a person’s life is far greater than the original. God sometimes saves the best for last, as He knew we would fail. The best is yet in store.

  5. The taste of restoration is sweet. There is nothing so great. Do not allow the bitter taste of past failures to defeat you. Give them over to God.

  7. Forgiveness is the virtue of the weak, and adorns the strong. Nothing exists that forgiveness cannot subdue.
  8. We have all had times where we thought we were in God’s will only to find things coming apart on the broken wings of good intentions.

  11. It is finished. Three fragile, yet powerful words offered up to God, changed everything from the beginning of time throughout all eternity.
  12. There are people who dress themselves in thousands of dollars of designer wear clothing, but they are still ugly on the inside. Wearing Christian Dior doesn’t make you a Christian, only salvation covers ugly.
  13. I will not work for salvation. I will not stress when I struggle. I will not beat myself up when I fail. I am saved by grace and grace alone, there is not one single thing that I can personally contribute or add to that. Jesus paid it all. Done. End of story.
  14. We must set aside our own aspirations and let His will and direction be fully implemented in our lives. By doing so, our lives will be full of great and wondrous feats for God, and we will exceed all we ever imagined or hoped for.
