Waiting on God

Happy Thursday! Enjoy!

I came across this video while I was looking for some song of the band Tenth Avenue North (Their lead singer is on the right). The gentleman speaking to the left is Brenton Brown. He uses an analogy that I thought was a pretty ingenious way of looking at how we wait on God. Let’s just say…God and the DMV may have more in common than we realize...haha. ;)

“This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” - Habakkuk 2:3

Random Musings

Happy Friday!!!

I've always been fascinated by words.  I've been collecting quotes for as long as I could remember.  It's just one of those quirks that God made me with. I love words. I was even in the scrabble club in high school!...ha!'s true. But, seriously I wanted to share several random quotes I came across this week from different places. Some funny, some not. Some from twitter, other's from preachings, online, even some from my professor!  They're in no particular order.  Enjoy!

"Look within and be depressed.  Look without and be distressed.  Look to Jesus and be at rest" - Corrie Ten Boom

"Sometimes God seems distant until He shows up in some little detail that only He and you would know, proving He was always near" - Bobbie Houston

"Only in a math problem can you buy 60 cantaloupes and no one asks what the hell is wrong with you" - Shultz

"We make a living by what we get.  We make a life by what we give" -  Winston Church Hill

"Religion is boring.  Life with God is an adventure" - Michael W. Smith

"Be careful of your thoughts, because your thoughts can lead to words.  Be careful of your words, because your words can lead to actions.  Be careful of your actions, because your actions can lead to habits.  Be careful with your habits, because they can lead to what is your character.  And be careful to what is your character, because it will lead to your destiny." -  Pastor Jack Graham 

A humorous saying from my professor while speaking on the obesity epidemic in America..."God said 'our body is a temple', yet we have them filled up with Krispy Kreme" - Dr. Kilpatrick
