He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”
Then He said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
January Gratitude –
my favorite quotes this month.
Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books – especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day. ~John Wooden
Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint. ~Mark Twain (American Humorist)
Every time we pray our horizon is altered, our attitude to things is altered, not sometimes but every time, and the amazing thing is that we don’t pray more. ~Oswald Chambers
“We are all worms, but I do believe I am a glowworm.” ~Winston Churchill
Envy is the art of counting another’s blessings instead of your own. ~Harold Coffin
God is most glorified when we are most satisfied in Him. ~John Piper
Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. ~Charles Swindoll
If you were paid for every kind word you spoke, and charged for every unkind word… would you be rich or poor?
You cannot live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you. ~John Wooden
Christianity is not primarily a moral code but a grace-laden mystery; it is not essentially a philosophy of love but a love affair; it is not keeping rules with clenched fists but receiving a gift with open hands. ~Brennan Manning
Father, Forgive us for the many times we allow envy and selfishness to control our attitudes. Forgive us for the times we want more instead of being grateful for what we already have. Forgive us for allowing bad attitudes to control our days and ruin our witness. Help us Father. We want to live with gratitude, to praise and glorify You for blessings given. We want to love like You love and to forgive like You forgive. By the power of Your Holy Spirit change our attitudes from greed to gratitude. In Jesus name. Amen.
