Food For Thought

Today, I decided to begin a Food For Thought, which adds a ponderments element to this blog... so, here is the first.

What are your thoughts?

Faith is not belief with out proof, but trust without reservation. - D. Elton Trueblood

Never doubt in the dark what God has shown you in the light.- Edith Edman

Faith is like throwing a ball up in the air without feeling the need to look up to see if it will come back down. - Rex Rouis

To fear is to expect punishment.  To love is to know we are immersed, not in darkness, but in light. - Mother Teresa

The antidote to frustration is a calm faith, not in your own cleverness, or in hard toil, but in God's guidance. - Norman Vincent Peale

Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. It is the belief that God will do what is right. - Max Lucado

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.- Corrie ten Boom

The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays. - Soren Kierkegaard

I can’t understand God by feelings. I can’t understand the Lord Jesus Christ by feelings. I can only understand God the Father and Jesus Christ by what the Word says about them. God is everything the Word says He is. We need to get acquainted with Him through the Word. - Smith Wigglesworth

Ignorance of scripture is ignorance of Christ. - St. Jerome
