God promised to make you free. He never promised to make you independent.

To pray is to listen, to move through my own chattering to God, to that place where I can be silent and listen to what God may have to say.

Inspiration usually comes during work, rather than before it.

It’s a good thing to have all the props pulled out from under us occasionally. It gives us some sense of what is rock under our feet, and what is sand.

When we believe in the impossible, it becomes possible, and we can do all kinds of extraordinary things.

If we are not willing to fail we will never accomplish anything. All creative acts involve the risk of failure.

Truth is eternal, knowledge is changeable. It is disastrous to confuse them.

I wish that we worried more about asking the right questions instead of being so hung up on finding answers.

We do not draw people to Christ by loudly discrediting what they believe, by telling them how wrong they are and how right we are, but by showing them a light that is so lovely that they want with all their hearts to know the source of it.

A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.

  1. Love your thought – If we are not willing to fail, we will never accomplish anything. Great opening thought, God does promise to make us free and why would we ever want to be independent of Him.
