“If you must live with uncongenial people, set to their conquest by love. If you have made a great mistake in your life, do not let it becloud all of it, but, locking the secret in your breast, compel it to yield strength and sweetness.” – F. B. Meyer

“In the series of which time, the many deliverances and wonderful Providences of God unto us, and over us, hath been, and I hope will so remain to be as a continued obligation on my mind ever to live in that fear, love and obedience to God, duly regarding, by His grace, with meekness and wisdom, to approve myself by His spirit, in all holiness of life, of godliness of conversation, to the praise of Him that hath called me, who is God blessed forever.” – Elizabeth Hanson, from God’s Mercy Surmounting Man’s Cruelty, 1721

“Be it yours and mine to come to Christ, to live on him, and to believe on him with unstaggering faith; so shall we delight ourselves in God, and lift up our faces to him.” – Charles Spurgeon

“How foolish we are to keep trying to do things our way, in our strength when we have the great Creator of the Universe, our Redeemer as our refuge, strength and help. He loves us and is always near us, paying attention, listening for us.” – Ruth Graham

“For I had to do it—I knew that. The message that God forgives has a prior condition: that we forgive those who have injured us. ‘If you do not forgive men their trespasses,’ Jesus says, ‘neither will your Father in Heaven forgive your trespasses.’” “…And so woodenly, mechanically, I thrust my hand into the one stretched out to me. And as I did, an incredible thing took place. The current started in my shoulder, raced down my arm, sprang into our joined hands. And then this healing warmth seemed to flood my whole being, bringing tears to my eyes. ‘I forgive you, brother!’ I cried. ‘With all my heart!’” – Corrie Ten Boom
