Thoughts for a busy day....

Comforting and encouraging thoughts for a busy day when there is much to do and there are many needs....




"If God sends us to do anything for Him we have power, whether we know it or not."


"God fills our hands with work, but He does not overburden us. When we are overburdened it is time for us to stop."


"Never be perplexed as to the next step; that is the Lord's work."


"Always follow your work with believing prayer."


"It is natural for us to think if we could do some great exploit, or carry through some great piece of self denial, we should be high in the kingdom. But it is not so. It is doing something that nobody sees but the Master Himself, and no one knows but He."


"The Lord never asks us to go where He Himself is not going."


"Live one day at a time, no more. It is the burden of one day that the Lord carries.'Give us this day our daily bread.'"


"We are to be rewarded not only for work done, but for burdens borne, and I am not sure but the brightest rewards will be for those who have borne burdens without murmuring."


"The joy of the Lord is your strength.' Whatever is burdening you, get back to that joy of the Lord, and you are above the trouble. When harassed by a multitude of cares you have perhaps got from the Lord such a time of joy that perhaps for that time you were above all care. So in a time of affliction, when you retreat to the fortress, O how you will triumph! 'Though the fig tree should not blossom, neither fruit be in the vines.' You walk out amidst the desolation and look up - not around anymore, and say, 'I will rejoice in the Lord, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.' "
Andrew Bonar

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
