3 Quotes for a Monday Morning
 

Three quotes to get us thinking this Monday morning. May we pursue God with passion and intensity as we wait patiently on Him to guide and direct our steps closer to Him.

“It is unlikely that we will deepen our relationship with God in a casual or haphazard manner. There will be a need for some intentional commitment and some reorganization of our own lives. But there is nothing that will enrich our lives more than a deeper and clearer perception of God’s presence in the routine of daily living.”

– William O. Pausell

 

“Jesus has many lovers of His kingdom of heaven, but he has few bearers of His Cross. Many desire His consolation, but few desire His tribulation. He finds many comrades in eating and drinking, but He finds few hands that will be with Him in His abstinence and fasting…

…But those who love Jesus purely for Himself, and not for their own profit or convenience, Bless Him as heartily in temptation and tribulation and in all other adversities as they do in time of consolation. And if He never sent them consolation, they would still bless and praise Him.”

– Thomas a Kempis

“O, Begin! Fix some part of every day for private exercises… Whether you like it or no, read and pray daily. It is for your life; there is no other way; else you will be a trifler all your days… Do justice to your own soul; give it time and means to grow. Do not starve yourself any longer.”

– John Wesley
