• “God is sovereign, that is He is the boss. He is in control. He is the supreme ruler of heaven and earth for all of eternity. He is Lord. We don’t make Him Lord. He is Lord. And joy comes when we acknowledge that He is Lord; we rest in His Lordship. We trust His sovereignty, and we surrender to it. That means that God has the right to give, and God has the right to take away.” – Nancy DeMoss

    My Grandmother taught me this prayer when I was a child. My Grandmother was born in 1918-89 I was born in 1963. Thou hast clothed me, warmed and fed me; listen to my evening prayer. 3. Let my debts be all forgiven; This is the only thing different about the prayer I learned as a child. (Thou has clothed, Warmth and fed me.) and (Let my sins be all forgiven) I love this prayer and now it has more meaning. It's always been special to me.

  • “Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.” – Elisabeth Elliot
