Quotes in Plain Language

I am quite sure our Savior came up with the best and easiest way for us to get through this thing called life. So when matters get difficult, just say Thank You. We all too often interject our ways testing to see if we can make God’s job harder. How trifling of us. (Noted in my diary). ~GW

 

“Nature is but a name for an effect caused by God.”

— William Cowper —

 

Christ’s system of moral understanding and direction remained as a treasured store of knowledge about the good and the right, to guide us in being and doing, far up into the twentieth century. It was assumed and represented as knowledge by social and governmental institutions until well into the middle of that century, though by then it had been under attack by a small group of “advanced” thinkers for some time. It may have been dismissed, but to the present day no plausible alternative to it as a basis of individual and social existence has emerged, nothing that even comes close. Today we are, as a culture, in a condition of simple moral revolt and waywardness.                             — Dallas Willard —    (so let us snag them singly as we are able, and pull them from the confused morass)

 

Today, is a good day to remember He told us from the beginning these days would be coming . He told us from the beginning as a reminder to never look away from Him. I look to the hills and mountains for a way to escape. But that’s not where my help comes from. My help, our help, comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. ~GW
