[At The Foundation Of The Christian Life, There Is A Kind Of Sacred Individuality, A Sort Of Holy Aloneness That Cries Out To Be Left Alone With God. This Isn't All Of The Christian Life. It Doesn't Erase Those Parts Of A Christian's Experience That Happen In The Context Of Relationships, But This Sacred Solitude Needs To Be Discovered, Respected, And Protected.It Is That Place Where We Most Irrefutably Hear God Tell Us That He Loves Us, And We Come To Know That, No Matter What Other People May Say About Us Or Do To Us, God Will Not Abandon Us. That Holy Solitude Is The Place Where We Find God's Spirit Changing Our Affections And Redirecting Our Identities. It Is, For Jesus-followers, Holy Ground.]

Ruth Bell Graham Quotes

"Dear God, I prayed, all unafraid(as were inclined to do),I do not need a handsome manbut let him be like You;I do not need one big and strongnor yet so very tall,nor need he be some genius,or wealthy, Lord, at all;but let his head be high, dear God,and let his eye be clear,his shoulders straight, whateer his state,whateer his earthly sphere;and let his face have character,a ruggedness if soul,and let his whole life show, dear God,a singleness of goal;then when he comes(as he will come)with quiet eyes aglow,Ill understand that hes the manI prayed for long ago."

Carl Elliott Quotes

"On Prozac, Sisyphus might well push the boulder back up the mountain with more enthusiasm and creativity. I do not want to deny the benefits of psychoactive medication. I just want to point out that Sisyphus is not a patient with a mental health problem. To see him as a patient with a mental health problem is to ignore certain larger aspects of his predicament connected to boulders, mountains, and eternity."

Elizabeth LeSeur Quotes

"Let us love. Let our lives be a perpetual song of love for God, first of all, and for all human beings who suffer, love, and mourn. Let deep joy live in us. Let us be like the lark, enemy of the night, who always announces the dawn and awakens in each creature the love of light and life. Let us awaken others to the spiritual life."

Quotes About Someone Who You Miss

"Clem is my first dead body. Ive heard again and again—mostly from friends whove lost other friends to AIDS—that its essential to see the corpse of someone you love, especially someone whos died undeservedly young; how it will confirm the way nothing else can that he or she is no longer here. The body wont look like the person you know, the self of that person, at all. This tells you there has to be a soul because somethings missing; what else could that something be?

Quotes About Conveyance

"Weve forgotten much. How to struggle, how to rise to dizzy heights and sink to unparalleled depths. We no longer aspire to anything. Even the finer shades of despair are lost to us. Weve ceased to be runners. We plod from structure to conveyance to employment and back again. We live within the boundaries that science has determined for us. The measuring stick is short and sweet. The full gamut of life is a brief, shadowy continuum that runs from gray to more gray. The rainbow is bleached. We hardly know how to doubt anymore. ("The Thing")" - Author: Richard Matheson
