“Feelings are indicators, not dictators. They can indicate where your heart is in the moment, but that doesn't mean they have the right to dictate your behavior and boss you around. You are more than the sum total of your feelings and perfectly capable of that little gift . . . called self-control.”
Lysa TerKeurst, Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions
“Not reaching back for what was lost in my yesterdays. And not reaching for what I hope will be in my tomorrow. But living fully with what is right in front of me. And truly seeing the gift of this moment.”
Lysa TerKeurst, Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl
“God can take what Satan meant for shame and use it for His glory. Just when we think we've messed up so badly that our lives are nothing but heaps of ashes, God pours His living water over us and mixes the ashes into clay. He then takes this clay and molds it into a vessel of beauty. After He fills us with His overflowing love, He can use us to pour His love into the hurting lives of others.”
Lysa TerKeurst

Lysa TerKeurst, Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food
“It is good for God's people to be put in a place of longing so they feel a slight desperation. Only then can we be empty enough and open enough to discover the holiness we were made for. When we are stuffed full of other things and never allow ourselves to be in a place of longing, we don't recognize the deeper spiritual battle going on.”
Lysa TerKeurst, Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food
“Wounds.
Broken places.
Possibility.
Change.
Steps toward holiness.
Imperfect progress.
The hurt in those who hurt me---their underbellies.
Grace.
Love.
Me looking alot more like Jesus than I did before.
And to discover through all this seeing---being unglued isn't all that bad.”
Lysa TerKeurst, Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions
