“I struggle to always and actually keep in step with the Spirit moment by moment. To submit and give up everything truly is radical and terrifying. However, when I think deeply about it, walking in my own wisdom, contrary to the Spirit’s leading, is even more frightful. Though I struggle, I know that ultimately I want nothing more than to live in total surrender and abandonment to the Spirit every moment I have left on this earth.”—Francis Chan (via elicec)
“I think the reason we sometimes have the false sense that God is so far away is because that is where we have put him. We have kept him at a distance, and then when we are in need and call on him in prayer, we wonder where he is. He is exactly where we left him.”—Ravi Zacharias, Has Christianity Failed You? (via hisquietvoice)
All of my life, in every season…You are still God. I have a reason to sing, I have a reason to worship.
Lord, You are so good! You are holding my hand and leading me through this desert. I will continue to praise You through this dryness. I believe that You are still working in me in the desert, Father. YOU ARE SO GOOD.
