    “I feel as if I were a piece in a game of chess, when my opponent says of it: That piece cannot be moved.” ~ Soren Kierkegaard

    “I am somewhat exhausted; I wonder how a battery feels when it pours electricity into a non-conductor?” -A.C. Doyle

    "Do not be content with the old anointing. It is essential to a more holy and happy life that you seek to be anointed with new oil. Do not be satisfied with past experiences. Seek to have a new revelation of Christ to your soul. -Octavius Winslow

    "The Bible is a book, those who do not travel beyond its edges read only a page of red letters and black letters with little attention to the white spaces between the lines." -David E. Johnson

    "A man prayed, and at first he thought that prayer was talking. But he became more and more quiet until in the end he realized prayer is listening." ~Soren Kierkegaard

    "Any one who has been touched by grace will no longer look on those who stray as those evil people or those poor people who need our help. Nor must we search for signs of loveworthiness. Grace teaches us that God loves because of who God is, not because of who we are." - Phillips Brooks

    "God loves you without condition or reservation and loves you this moment as you are and not as you should be.' -Brennan Manning

    "The dominant characteristic of an authentic spiritual life is the gratitude that flows from trust not only for all the gifts that I receive from God, but gratitude for all the suffering. Because in that purifying experience, suffering has often been the shortest path to intimacy with God." -Brennan Manning

    "The deeper we grow in the Spirit of Jesus Christ, the poorer we become - the more we realize that everything in life is a gift. The tenor of our lives becomes one of humble and joyful thanksgiving. Awareness of our poverty and ineptitude causes us to rejoice in the gift of being called out of darkness into wondrous light and translated into the kingdom of God's beloved Son." -Brennan Manning

    "Sad will be the day for every man when he becomes absolutely contented with the life that he is living, with the thoughts that he is thinking, with the deeds that he is doing, when there is not forever beating at the doors of his soul some great desire to do something larger, which he knows that he was meant and made to do because he is the child of God." ~Phillips Brooks

    "God is not only King and Judge, God is Father he is indeed Father more than anything else. No father could be happy while there were members of his family for ever in agony. No father would count it a triumph to obliterate the disobedient members of his family."

    "The only triumph a father can know is to have all his family back home. The only victory love can enjoy is the day when its offer of love is answered by the return of love. The only possible final triumph is a universe loved by and in love with God." -Dr. Wm. Barclay

    "If you don't feel strong desires for the manifestation of the glory of God it is not because you have drunk deeply and are satisfied, it is because you have nibbled so long at the table of the world your soul is stuffed with small things, and there is no room for the great.” ~ John Piper (A hunger for God)

    "Blest are the wounds of our heavenly Friend and Brother." ~D. Johnson

    "Having your wounds kissed by Someone who doesn't see them as disasters in your soul, but cracks to put their love into, is the most calming thing in the world." ~D. Johnson
