The Aspirations Of The Lofty

Thursday, 29 September 2016 by childofGod778

So my best friend Shawn gave me an audiobook to listen to called “Sir Apropos Of Nothing”.  It’s a comical twist on your typical hero story, because the whole thing is told from the main character, who is in fact always not the main character of the story (the background of the story will help […]

Letting Go Of Fate

Thursday, 22 September 2016 by childofGod778

As my birthday passed a couple days ago, I got to spend this week doing a lot of reflecting.  I think we’ve all gone through so many stages of life, growing from one stage to another.  I have grown up in so many ways, even as the days become years.  One of those stages that […]

Christ vs Christianity

Thursday, 15 September 2016 by childofGod778

With my birthday next week, I thought I’d share a quote from my own thoughts this week.  This comes from a lengthy discussion I had recently, but the thought has been in my head almost as long as I’ve been a follower of Jesus. “The first problem is, you must differentiate between what Jesus said, […]

What Makes America Home

Thursday, 8 September 2016 by childofGod778

With 9-11 just around the corner, and the yearly reminder of the history of the country being molded continuously, I wanted to share this quote about America from an immigrant who came in to see all that it could be. “What makes America home for me is not my passport, nor my accent, but the […]

An Instant Change

Thursday, 1 September 2016 by childofGod778

This quote goes SO well with the one I shared two weeks ago.  So let’s do the quote now, then the commentary. “You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.” – Jim Rohn This is CRUCIAL to understanding change in life!  So many people who are not used to creating […]

Your Offering Of Self

Thursday, 25 August 2016 by childofGod778

This quote has a LOT packed into it, because it reaches to both extremes in the self-centered bias.  Whether of self-doubt, or self-promotion, we are not better off doing one than the other.  To be doubtful denies the value you bring, and to be pompous is to offer more than your value.  But neither of […]

Movement And Destination

Thursday, 18 August 2016 by childofGod778

A very successful (IMO) youth pastor who has SO much wisdom to teach, David Winston always has a great example in his teachings.  This quote comes from an example of being lost in the woods. “Movement in any direction looks like progress until you have a destination.” – David Winston Think on how simple this […]

The Mirror Effect

Thursday, 11 August 2016 by childofGod778

I could honestly write an entire series based around the truth of this quote.  In fact, I have written a lot already about it at various places on this website.  But I’ll simplify this post, since it’s a quote. “We all know something. What we know or how much we know hinges mostly on the […]

Contradiction vs Paradox

Thursday, 4 August 2016 by childofGod778

I’m gonna leave you in question this week on the meaning of this quote.  Usually I spell it out, add my own thoughts, and expand on the concept a bit.  But this time, I’m wanting you to let this one marinate in your mind. “There’s a difference between a contradiction and a paradox.” – Steven […]

An Endless Love

Thursday, 28 July 2016 by childofGod778

As with last week, I’m gonna change it up a bit again, and go a whole different direction with this week’s quote.  I was so encouraged when I read this, reminiscing on the notion that there are people out there that believe in this kind of love. “I love thee to the depth and breadth […]
