We all hear a saying about our spiritual life that we want to jot down and keep in mind.

 

I heard one today and had to grab a pencil and I wondered if anyone has any they could share ?

 

Today whilst considering the days text a sister from New York said " Never put a question mark where Jehovah puts a period " I loved it and down it went in my note book of insightful sayings .

"A year from now you will wish you had started today."

 

"When life gets too hard to stand, kneel."

"Don't look back. You're not going that way."

 

"It's not too late to live happily ever after."

 

"The happiest people don't have everything they want. They make the most out of what they already have."

 

"H.O.P.E. Hold On, Pain Ends."

 

"Do something today that your future self will thank you for."

 

"Do not give up. You are closer than you think."

Sister Maria,   here is another one for thought:  "  It's not the degree of education, it is the degree of faith that one puts in Jehovah that will make you successful."

 

Here is another one:  Man says, "Show me and I will trust you"---Jehovah says, "TRUST ME AND I WILL SHOW YOU."

 

"Let the Mind of your Master be the Master of your mind."

Thought of a few more:    "We cannot ask Jehovah to guide our footsteps if we are not willing to move our feet."

 

"No disappointment is too great for Jehovah to heal, to resolve, or even turn into a blessing."  from Imitate Their Faith  pg. 75  par. 27

 

"It is not our position but our disposition that make us happy."

 

"What we are governed by determines who we are!

Are you governed by feelings, passion or godly principles?"

Watch your words... they become your thoughts. 

Watch your thoughts... they become your feelings. 

 

Watch your feelings... they become your actions. 

 

Watch your actions... they become your lifestyle. 

 

Watch your lifestyle... it determines your outcome. (Originally stated as “it controls your destiny”)

“If it’s not a sacrifice, it’s not a sacrifice.”

This took me back to grade school. Our teacher was getting a package together to send to kids that were not as fortunate and wanted to teach us a moral lesson I guess. We had to bring something from home of our own personal things. I always remember the stipulation she put on it; she said it had to be something we wanted, something we didn't want to give away. It couldn't be something we didn't care about and wouldn't miss. Only then was it true giving. I don't remember what I brought a whole lifetime ago, maybe my crayons or my favorite barrette. I just hope whoever got it wanted it as much as I did because I was poor too. 😃

It's not always true of course, there are many ways of giving. But the thought of the sacrifice always stayed with me..

One small crack doesn't mean you are broken; it means that you were put to the test and didn't fall apart..

Thats such a good way of thinking about sacrifice , I guess its why someone with very little is not excluded from giving meaningful sacrifice like the windows mite !
