We all know that life can be extremely difficult at times, but someone else could be having a more difficult time than we are. While pondering these things today, the question came to mind " Have you ever been swallowed by a whale?" of course my inward response was, no . My thoughts turned to this statement: "Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his God out of the fish's belly and said, I cried by r... Read more of this blog post »

“Let us keep in mind that we do not have to go to the scriptures inorder to approach God. We do not have to find the right scripture inorder to talk to God".”
Thurman L. Faison, To The Spiritually Inclined

“A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within, more than the lustre of the firmament of bards and sages. Yet he dismisses without notice his thought, because it is his. In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts: they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

“Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

“Give me neither poverty nor riches but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, "Who is the Lord?" Or I may become poor and steal and so dishonor the name of my God.”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: New International Version

“Therefore, whatever may be the nature of our anxiety, we should endeavour to dispel it by the consideration that there may be already existing other facts we do not know of which will produce a different result from the one we fear, and that in any case there is a power which can produce new facts in answer to our appeal to it.”
Thomas Troward

“I live in the faith that there is a Presence and Power greater than I am that nurtures and supports me in ways I could not even imagine. I know that this Presence is All knowing and All Power and is Always right where I am”
Ernest Holmes
