On Fire: Finding Your Gift And Using It

977696_globe_4Today these words infuse new life into me. I share them with you with the hope they will encourage you too.

“In our faithful listening to God’s Word, we often neglect his first word to us–the gift of ourselves to ourselves: our existence, our temperament, our personal history, our uniqueness, our flaws and foibles, our identity. Our very existence is one of the never-to-be-repeated ways God has chosen to express himself in space and time.

Because we are made in God’s image and likeness, you and I are yet another promise that he has made to the universe that he will continue to love it and care for it.”

– Brennan Manning in Ruthless Trust


 “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”

– St Catherine of Siena


 “It is not in the still calm of life…that great characters are formed.”

– Abigail Adams


 “Use your imagination not to scare yourself to death but to inspire yourself to life.”

Adele Brookman quoted in More Magazine


“I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.”

– Jesus in John 15:9 (NLT)
