    “To understand this phrase properly, we have to understand that the word wind is, in the Greek, the same word as spirit. What Jesus explained to Nicodemus here is that conversion is simple but also profound. Out of heaven will come a wind of the Spirit, and though you might not be able to tell where it came from or where it is going, you will know it when it hits you, and it will change you forever.”
    Ron Phillips, Unexplained Mysteries of Heaven and Earth: Surprising Insights About Our World and Beyond

    “Salvation is not something simply admirable; it possesses us and causes us to be a peculiar people. It is not simply understood; it is felt and experienced. When a person acknowledges his sins, confesses them, and trusts the death and resurrection of Christ to save him, he is saved. We do not receive a plan; we receive a person. We do not receive truth; we receive the One who said, “I am…the truth” (John 14:6).”

    Wilbur Smith
    “A man follows the path laid out for him. He does his duty to God and his King. He does what he must do, not what pleases him. God's truth, boy, what kind of world would this be if every man did what pleased him alone? Who would plough the fields and reap the harvest, if every man had the right to say, 'I don't want to do that.' In this world there is a place for every man, but every man must know his place.”
    Wilbur Smith, Monsoon

    “Then one day we wake up and realize that our hearts and minds are consumed with a certain relationship or activity that has replaced God by becoming our first priority. That is idolatry.”

  • #23
    “Be honest with yourself today. Who or what has captured your heart? What do you think about and spend your energy on more than anything else? If there is anything or anyone else who gets more of your attention than Jesus, it’s time to back away from it or them. Then acknowledge Jesus in everything you think, say, and do instead of just nodding to Him from time to time when you need help. Keep yourself from idols by being His partner in life.”
    Taffi Dollar, 21 Days to Your Spiritual Makeover: Small Changes That Bring Results!

    “Family is the nucleus unit of any society. Although modern science allows us to create life in a petri dish, I believe God designed humans—like all other animals—to be born of a male and a female union in the context of family according to His divine plan for our spiritual development. Family grounds us and grows us. We first learn how to relate to others through our family relationships. We learn to change and adapt according to the needs of our family. For instance, a mother will notice the subtle moves and shiftings of her baby in her womb. As the baby squirms and moves about, the mother will adjust her body to make the baby more comfortable. Sometimes I think back to the days when I carried my own babies. Tending to their tiniest needs, I began to understand that God tends to our smallest needs just as well.”

    Valerie Frankel
    “Women get into a relationship hoping a man will change, and he never does; men get into a relationship hoping the woman don't change, but she always does. Men want their partners to be consistent. That they won't make impromptu impossible demands nor baffle him with classically female sudden-onset hysterical behavior.”
    Valerie Frankel, The Girlfriend Curse

  • #28
    Valerie Frankel
    “When you look in the mirror, it's usually to fix your hair or put on makeup. To examine your body searching for problem areas. We look at ourselves to see the flaw, not beauty. And we look at predictable times, in the morning, after using the bathroom, before bed. We hardly ever see ourselves when we aren't prepared for inspection. But only when you're unprepared can you see your true self, your true beauty.”
    Valerie Frankel, The Girlfriend Curse

    Valerie Frankel
    “Love is an uphill climb, but once you know yourself and like yourself just as you are, it's all downhill from there.”
