I have had to think to use on myself that his thoughts are higher than my thoughts , all things can-not be answered to our way of thinking , I will have to say when I can-not see how there is forever , I think well , there has to be because there has always been an always been , if that even makes since to you what I am trying to say , big bang theory , what a big joke , you ask me how I know he lives , he lives within my heart , that feeling is so wonderful ……….

Amen Patricia!


Nicholas January 16, 2013 at 10:30 pm

I have to share that I do appreciate the prayers , knowing that the love of GOD is in many , that is so sincere , I try to make it a point when I say I will pray for someone that I do it right then , and that I mean I am serious about it , because it means so much to me to know others will join in prayer , we don’t know each other , but when we all get to Heaven — as the song says what a day of rejoicing that will be , we will see those we asked and those we didn’t even actually know that were praying for us , thank- you so very much !!!!

My wife’s mother passed last Friday at around 7:30 p.m. , our cat went missing on Saturday , my wife’s daughter depleted our bank account almost , and we had my mother-in-law’s services Sunday , May 19th , the bank covered the money , we ask that you pray very hard for the daughter , we love her , she has problems with drugs , she has made us some promises , pray that she can keep them , and that our family will be blessed please , I know we sin , all of us do , but I know we are going through some trials , pray that we won’t lose faith , get thee behind us Satan !!


Joshua Johnson March 12, 2015 at 3:28 pm

My own personal quote. “If its not Christ, its not me.” keeps my direction as a Christian straight and narrow. I flat out don’t let anything in that is not of my Lord Jesus Christ. I follow the Loving Holy spirit of Jesus Christ that is forever infused with my Eternal Soul because of HIS precious blood sacrifice and glorious resurrection. And if there are those who love Him with an authentic love I seek their guidance for my life also. Thank you for the quotes. I really appreciate them. ALL Praise to the Holy Creator of Everlasting Love.

We’ll have no time to count others…. if we count our unworthiness….


Savio Carvalho January 31, 2016 at 4:23 am

Greetings from India. Thanks for the quotes. I just sent the one by Augustine to our church whatsapp group.
