  13. Let the past sleep, but let it sleep on the bosom of Christ, and go out into the irresistible future with Him.
  14. Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time.

  1. Reblogged this on Paul Davis and commented:
    Ah, wisdom, there you are! She has a great site with amazing insight. I think I’ve reblogged her twice now. When someone says it as well as you can, why resay it?

    1. Mr. Davis, you keep humbling me .. Thank you, as always, for your kind words and encouragement … I really appreciate it so much … All the credit goes to God ๐Ÿ™‚ Isn’t he amazing!!

    1. Silly, You NEVER have to ask – Please, feel free ๐Ÿ™‚ We are all here for each other, to spread the Word of God. That means SPREAD it … You are so sweet and thoughtful to ask, Juliana. What a blessing you are!

  2. These are great! Where do you find these lists? Do you create them? Very simply, powerful points to digest and hold true in our daily walk with God. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hello .. thank you for reading and for sharing your kind words. Yes, I created this list myself. It was tough to narrow it down to only the ones I have here .. He has SO MANY great quotes. I am a fan of his and love reading his work ..

  3. These are amazing quotes, Proverbsgirl! I can’t wait to read the devotionals that’re in your heart.

    1. Mr. Davis … Feeling quite humbled over here. Really. Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement. Of course, glory goes to God .. always. You have blessed me with your comments and I needed that today. Thank you KINDLY!

    1. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done that! I’ll post it, so excited to just get it done already .. go back to read it and, yep, there’s my ‘attention to detail’ .. I didn’t notice a darn thing ๐Ÿ˜‰ As for Chambers, .. yeah, right?

      1. It wasn’t something I’d missed.. I purposely put “aaa” in front of the 3rd line of every stanza and then WHITED IT OUT (colored the aaa white) because my drafts page wouldn’t let me indent that line! So that the 3rd lines would look indented. But then the Reader SHOWED the “aaa” LOL. SAD. =( I wanted my indents.

  4. Hi Proverbsgirl!

    I like your web site!

    With the above article, not sure about number twelve; there actually have been times when the Lord has told us what He is going to do…. – He Just hasn’t told us when we’ve been demanding to know. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Peace be upon you and your readers,
    C. Dunamis

    1. Hi .. Thank you for your feedback. After reading your feedback, I decided to reread that one you’re talking about .. I must say,. I agree with you. Thank you for sharing your feedback.

      Have a blessed day .. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Number 4 is my current favorite: Beware at looking back at what you once were, when God wants you to become someone youโ€™ve never been. What a great reminder that we’re not finished work yet.
