Fulton J. Sheen
“It takes three to make love, not two: you, your spouse, and God. Without God people only succeed in bringing out the worst in one another. Lovers who have nothing else to do but love each other soon find there is nothing else. Without a central loyalty life is unfinished.”
Fulton J. Sheen, Seven Words of Jesus and Mary: Lessons from Cana and Calvary

Joshua Harris
“Every relationship for a Christian is an opportunity to love another person like God has loved us.”
Joshua Harris, I Kissed Dating Goodbye: A New Attitude Toward Relationships and Romance

“It's not the law of religion nor the principles of morality that define our highways and pathways to God; only by the Grace of God are we led and drawn, to God. It is His grace that conquers a multitude of flaws and in that grace, there is only favor. Favor is not achieved; favor is received.”
C. JoyBell C.

“Such is my relationship with God: on my gigantic canvass of life, I am the one throwing all of the brightly-colored paints, creating genuine splatters, authentic whirlpools of color, beautiful patterns, wonderful streaks and stains and wild accents; God is the one with the paintbrush who stands beside my canvass filling all the intricate and amazing details in between the whirlpools and the streaks! We're happy together!”
C. JoyBell C.

C. JoyBell C.
“I was asked by a concerned church-goer: "Is your relationship with God okay?" and I answered "My relationship with God is far better than yours. You have to be in a certain place, with a certain group of people, pray at certain days of the week, read the Bible at certain times of the day; all in order to have a relationship with God. But I am with God from the moment I wake up, to the moment I fall asleep at night, I am with God wherever on this earth that I wander to, and whosoever I may be with! I may be sitting on the subway, and I am with God. I can assure you that I am closer to God than you are.”
C. JoyBell C.

Michelle McKinney Hammond

Michelle McKinney Hammond

T.D. Jakes, The Lady, Her Lover, and Her Lord

Shannon L. Alder
“Spiritual pain is when you can’t stand another moment not knowing the real truth, and when you finally do know you can’t let go.”
Shannon L. Alder

C. JoyBell C.
“No more quickly can a person rob you of your joy and peace than when that individual succeeds at making you feel like you're less than worthy of God as compared to his/her own self. The old adage "You're on your way to hell, and I'm on my way to heaven" spoken or implied to another, is the most predominantly effective way to make someone feel better about himself; and he doesn't even have to prove he's better in this life on earth because now he can just say "Wait 'til I'm looking down at you while you're in hell!" But don't be robbed of your joy and peace, individuals or groups of people like that don't know where God is; He is a whisper-distance away from you, is all.”
C. JoyBell C.

C. JoyBell C.
“Anybody who says "I know how to get to God and you don't, do this and do that and go here and go there" is going to become 1. very powerful and 2. very rich. The simple truth is, if I am with God, no less can you be with God at the same time as I am.”
C. JoyBell C.

Michael Ben Zehabe

pg vii”
Michael Ben Zehabe, Song of Songs the book for daughters

Bernard of Clairvaux
“The more I contemplate God, the more God looks on me. The more I pray to him, the more he thinks of me too.”
Bernard of Clairvaux

Criss Jami
“God wants us to humbly and sincerely ask him things. How often do you enjoy people talking about you without taking the time to get to know you?”
Criss Jami, Healology

Bethany Hamilton
“The way I see it, putting your faith in God is something that each person has gotta come to on his or her own.It's your own personal relationship with Him; a bond that's as unique as a fingerprint.”
Bethany Hamilton

Billy Graham, Billy Graham in Quotes

“The mystery of seeking God is that HE is the One who finds you.”
Kingsley Opuwari Manuel

Will Davis Jr.
“Instead of fleeing God scrutiny, David welcomed it. It's like he was saying, "Look God, since I can't hide from you, since you know my very thoughts before I think them, I want you to fully know me. Be in the very core, the essence of my being. If you're going to know me, then know everything about me!”
Will Davis Jr., 10 Things Jesus Never Said: And Why You Should Stop Believing Them

Katy Kauffman
“An ever-growing, ever-constant relationship with God makes us certain of what we believe and enables us to run with endurance.”
Katy Kauffman, 2 Timothy: Winning the Victory

Criss Jami
“The aim is to love God because the pure heart loves loving God and because the true mind knows He deserves it. Unlike the accusations and beliefs of the critics and skeptics, it is neither an obligation of duty; nor a fear of damnation; nor a wish for power; nor a desire to appear more righteous than others; nor because God needs it; but because through all love, truth, reason, faith, honesty, and joy in and beyond oneself and the universe, He is worthy.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Christos Yannaras
“The word 'God' defines a personal relation, not an objective concept. Like the name of the beloved in every love. It does not imply separation and distance. Hearing the beloved name is an immediate awareness, a dimensionless proximity of presence. It is our life wholly transformed into relation.”
Christos Yannaras, Variations on the Song of Songs

Israelmore Ayivor
“Be in a close association with your creator whose is ever ready to direct your plans. Always ensure your convictions are divine and backed by a Godly approval.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Dream Big!: See Your Bigger Picture!

“With God it’s not about beholding life, but being held ourselves in the act of beholding it.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Comte de Lautréamont
“To describe heaven it is not necessary to transport the materials of earth there. One must leave earth & its materials where they are, so as to beautify life with its ideal. To address Elohim familiarly is an unseemly buffoonery. The best way of showing him gratitude is not by yelling in his ears that he is mighty, that he created the world, that we are wormlets compared to his greatness. He knows it better than we. Men may excuse themselves of informing him of that. The best way of showing him gratitude is to console humanity, to restore all to it, take it by the hand & treat it like a brother. This is more genuine.”
Comte de Lautréamont, Maldoror and the Complete Works

Nityananda Das
“Any kind of hatred towards the opposite sex is a symptom of an unhealthy relationship with God.”
Nityananda Das, Divine Union

“We want a god alright, but we humanize him enough to force him to be at our beck-and-call verses responding to the utter magnificence of His call.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“Even if you have got nothing else left, be proud of your relationship with God.”
Sunday Adelaja

“When we stop fighting we stop winning”
Sunday Adelaja

Mary Potter Kenyon
“Why had I failed to realize the depth of Mary’s faith despite all those
letters? She’d certainly done her best to share it. The answer came to me in
the midst of my own faith journey, one that seemed to begin the night my
mother died and was jump-started when I lost David seventeen months later.

Why hadn’t I seen it?
Simple. I wasn’t looking.

According to Jeremiah 29:13 in the Bible, “You will seek me and find
me when you seek me with all your heart” (NIV). It wasn’t about Mary at all. It was about me. It wasn’t until my mother’s death that I began actively
seeking God. I didn’t see Mary’s Christian example because I hadn’t yet
developed spiritually. I wasn’t “there” yet. I didn’t recognize true faith
because I didn’t have my own.”
Mary Potter Kenyon, Mary & Me: A Lasting Link Through Ink

“I think myself so terribly ‘clever’ that the need for God is blatantly irrelevant. And all the while, in the rapidly growing mess that I’m ‘cleverly’ creating, I rather quickly begin to realize that the only thing that is relevant is His relevance.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Shannon L. Alder
“Fearlessness is not what you do to win, but what you don't do. When you love yourself as much as your God, you won't see other people as the source of your pain. Rather, you will see who you have become because you honestly believed that your chains would be broken through hatred, instead of kindness.”
Shannon L. Alder
