The Oil of Joy

 ''Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.'' 
Philippians 4:6

He will not fail, nor mock, 
nor disappoint thee;
His consolations change 
not with the years;
With oil of joy
 He surely will anoint thee,
And wipe away thy tears.
 J. Danson Smith  

Seen & Unseen

I know God will not give me anything
 I can't handle.  I just wish that He didn't trust me so much. 
 ~Mother Teresa

“So we do not lose heart. 
Though our outer self is wasting away,
 our inner self is being renewed day by day. 
For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”  
~Corinthians 4:16-18

Manifest the Glory Within

Faith is a knowledge within the heart,
beyond the reach of proof.
Kahlil Gibran

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves 'who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?'

Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; its in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Marianne Williamson

Beautiful Little Faith

"There is far more opportunity than there is ability."
 Thomas A. Edison

“Sometimes beautiful things come into our lives out of nowhere.  
We can’t always understand them,
 but we have to trust in them.  
I know you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.”  
Lauren Kate 

Success Through Perseverance

The big challenge is to become
 all that you have the possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize your human potential and stretch yourself to the limit.
 Jim Rohn

“Through perseverance many people win success out of what seemed destined to be certain failure.” 
 Benjamin Disraeli
