Pick and Pull

I attended a retreat last weekend where the speaker was a talented and passionate young woman who had powerful truths to share. Some were about God, some about herself and her own story.

These are a few excerpts from my notes:
"Most of us feel like minor characters, but God has an amazing plan for every ordinary person."

"Strength is for service, not status."

"All I wanted to do was to get back to my car and live my miserable life. It's all I knew."

"Even though I wanted Him to intervene, I didn't want Him to intervene because I knew I would have to change."

"Jesus, You are with me in my joy and in my pain. Jesus, You are with me in my joy and in my pain." I said this till I fell asleep.

"When fear and doubts assail us, we are tempted to shrink back. Instead, we are invited to move to change."

To "repent" = to re-orient our way of thinking, to alter our way of looking at the world

"The kingdom of heaven is available to those who realize they need more than this world offers."

"The One who called you is faithful, and He will do it!" 1 Thess. 5:24

So what about you? What has God been impressing on you lately?

And which of the statements above ring true in your life?

I'd really love to hear your thoughts.
