For tonight I shall end with this...

I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and sage with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.

I have this hobby I guess you could call it where I collect quotes. If I find a quote I like I write it in my quote book. I just love quotes. So for awhile I have wanted to write a post of different quotes. I am probably going to make it into different segments cause it would take me awhile to write them all down, plus it would be an insanely long post, so here goes round one of quotes!

You, it is you now who must act. If you do nothing, nothing shall be done.
~Elisabeth Elliot    an excerpt from her book No Graven Image

O God fill my soul with so entire a love of you that I may love nothing, but for Your sake and in subordination with Your love. Give me grace to study Your knowledge daily, that the more I know You, the more I may love You. Create in me a zealous obedience to all Your commands, a cheerful patience under all Your chastisements, and a thankful resignation to all Your disposals. Let it be the one business of my life to glorify You by every word of my tongue, by every work on my hand, by professing Your truth, and by engaging all men so far as in my lies, to glorify and love You.
~John Wesley

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.

Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

God set His standards high so that we wont make the mistake of aiming low. He made them unreachable so that we would never have an excuse to stop growing.

I love you; not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you
~Roy Croft

How wonderful it is that nobody needs to wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
~Anne Frank    an excerpt from her diary

No man can drag me down so low as to make me hate him
~George Washington Carver

There is no more important work that what you are doing
~George Washington Carver

Our hearts are restless until they rest in God.

Unless we have something worth dying for we've nothing worth living for.
~Francine Rivers     an excerpt from her book series The Mark of the Lion 

I don't care what you've heard impossible is not a word, it's just an excuse to quite trying.
~Jason Sweet    an excerpt from his song Living Room Praise 

Courage is what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared.
~Edward Vernon Rickenbacker

Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away.
~Thomas Fuller

It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.

A girl should be so lost in God, that a guy must seek Him in order to find her

If you want to catch the eye of a godly guy, work hard at becoming a godly woman.

Dance with God. He'll let the perfect man step in.

Before he can be your knight in shining armor, he must first put on the armor of God.

Men are like steel. When they lose their temper, they lose their worth.
~Chuck Norris

Since this is getting rather long I suppose this shall be my last quote for the night

Watch your thoughts, they become your words, watch your words, they become your actions, watch your actions, they become your habit's, they become your character, what your character, it becomes your destiny.

Tune in next time for quotiness :)

Most of us know the history of sin. Sin entered the world when Eve ate of the tree and Adam likewise. (Though technically Eve sinned before then because she told a lie). When talking to different people it is amazing how many will say that it is Eves fault, or "it was that woman" or something to the effect of "I don't think that I would have cursed us all with sin by doing such a stupid thing as eating from a tree." Lets face the facts though.. Everyday we give into temptation, EVERYDAY! We sin everyday. Even the "good things" we do only count for filthy rags. Yet Eve seems to be the name that is almost synonymous with sin. Why should she be held accountable when all of us do as she did? We don't fight sin. We might use the excuse saying that it is in our nature, but if we don't fight temptation then we are doing the same thing as Eve. In some of the studies I have been involved in as of lat,e the topics have been death, life, salvation, and what happens after death
Death: On this topic I hate to inform you all, but... the number one cause of termination is death. We all know that death is a fact of life (rather ironic saying though...). We all must succumb to death. So much more could be said on death, but the basic part is we all die.
Life: In a song by SuperChik they say that "everyone dies, but not everyone lives." Sooooo true! We all die in the end, but how many people truly live?? When I say truly live I mean how many people live for Christ? How many people are actually alive during life?
Salvation: No one comes to the Father, but through Christ. The only way to be saved is through the cross, through the blood that was spilled on our accounts.
What happens after death: Depends on where your treasure is. If your treasure is here on earth then enjoy those treasures while you can because where you are going they will melt and/or burn. If you are among the saved then rejoice and do not be afraid of death. It has no sting. For the saints their treasure is in heaven where nothing can destroy it and no one can take it away, but much more importantly that is where God is.
