Favorite Wrestling With God Quotes

1. "I know what's wrong with me - I could never stand still for death! Which you've got to do by a certain age, or be ridiculous - you've got to stand there nobly and serene, and let death run his tape on your arms and around your belly and up your crotch until he's got you fitted for that black suit. And I can't, I won't!... So I'm left with wrestling with this anachronistic energy which God has charged me with and I will use it till the dirt is shoveled in my mouth! Life! Life! Fuck death and dying!"
Author: Arthur Miller
2. "God abides in men""God abides in men,These are men who are simple,they are fields of corn...Such men have mindslike wide grey skies,they have the grandeurthat the fools call emptiness.God abides in men.Some men are not simple,they live in citiesamong the teeming buildings,wrestling with forcesas strong as the sun and the rain.Often they must forgo dream upon dream...Christ walks in the wildernessin such lives.God abides in men,because Christ has put onthe nature of man, like a garment, and worn it to his own shape.He has put on everyone's the workman's clothes to the King's red robes,to the snowy loveliness of the wedding garment...Christ has put on Man's nature,and given him back his humanness...God abides in man."
Author: Caryll Houselander
3. "If you're wrestling with some sort of decision, reflect for a moment and ask yourself, Am I being brave, or am I being safe? In the end, it depends on whether we think God can be trusted."
Author: Gary Haugen
4. "The normal Christian Life is not supposed to be an exhausting wrestling match with a dead man, but is an abundant, joy-filled life with God, salted with an occasional season of strong resistance from our archenemy."
Author: Kris Vallotton
5. "When a man finds a woman who is capable of accepting him for himself, he'd be a fool to let her get away. When a man discovers a woman who believes in him and who is strong enough to understand and forgive his past, he's finally able to stop wrestling with his conscience and his self–doubt. He welcomes that woman into his life and his heart, and he thanks God that they found each other in time to make a life together. And when a man loves a woman who's that unique, he damn well marries her."
Author: Laura Taylor
6. "There is no power like that of prevailing prayer - of Abraham pleading for Sodom, Jacob wrestling in the stillness of the night, Moses standing in the breach, Hannah intoxicated with sorrow, David heartbroken with remorse and grief, Jesus in sweat and blood. Add to this list from the records of the church your personal observation and experience, and always there is cost of passion unto blood. Such prayer prevails. It turns ordinary mortals into men of power. It brings power. It brings fire. It brings rain. It brings life. It brings God."
Author: Samuel Chadwick
7. "I had a book of Bible stories when I was a kid. There was a picture I'd look at twenty times every day: Jacob wrestles with the angel. I don't really remember the story, or why the wrestling --just the picture. Jacob is young and very strong. The angel is...a beautiful man, with golden hair and wings, of course. I still dream about it. Many nights. I'm...It's me. In that struggle. Fierce, and unfair. The angel is not human, and it holds nothing back, so how could anyone human win, what kind of a fight is that? It's not just. Losing means your soul thrown down in the dust, your heart torn out from God's. But you can't not lose."
Author: Tony Kushner

Today's Quote

Kierkegaard poate sa strige, prevenindu-ne: «Daca omul n-ar avea o constiinta eterna, daca, în adîncul a toate, n-ar exista decît o putere salbatica si clocotitoare dînd nastere, în vîrtejul unor întunecate patimi, tuturor lucrurilor, celor marete si celor neînsemnate, daca sub lucruri s-ar ascunde haul fara fund pe care nimic nu-1 poate umple, ce-ar fi viata altceva decît disperare?» Acest strigat nu-1 va putea opri din drum pe omul absurd. A cauta ceea ce e adevarat nu înseamna a cauta ceea ce ai dori sa gasesti. Daca, pentru a scapa de întrebarea înspaimîntata : «Ce-i oare viata?», trebuie, ca si magarul, sa te hranesti cu trandafirii iluziei, spiritul absurd, decît sa se resemneze la minciuna, prefera sa adopte fara sa ezite raspunsul lui Kierkegaard: «disperare»."
