"We need winds and tempests to exercise our faith, to tear off the rotten bough of self-dependence, and to root us more firmly in Christ. The day of evil reveals to us the value of our glorious hope."
- Charles Spurgeon -

"Set NOT your hearts on the flowers of this world. They shall fade and die. Prize the Rose of Sharon and the Lily of the Valley. He changes not! Live nearer to Christ than to any person on this earth; so that when they are taken, you may have Him to love and lean upon."
Robert Murray McCheyne

"Settle it, once and for all -- You can never lose what you have offered to Christ.  It's the man who tries to save himself (or his reputation or his work or his dreams of success or fulfillment) who loses.  Jesus gave us His word that if we'd lose our lives for His sake, we'd find them."
~ Elisabeth Elliot ~
