The conversion of a soul is the miracle of a moment, but the manufacture of a saint is the task of a lifetime.

From 2 Corinthians 5:17:  “So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation:  everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!”

M. Scott Peck Quote

It is only because of problems that we grow mentally and spiritually.

From James 1:2-4:  “My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance; and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing.”

James Monroe

Our country may be likened to a new house.  We lack many things, but we possess the most precious of all–liberty!

[James Monroe took office in 1817, and the United States was still in its infancy as a nation.]

John Quincy Adams

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties and obstacles vanish.

Am I as spontaneously kind to God as I used to be, or am I only expecting God to be kind to me?  Am I full of the little things that cheer His heart over me, or am I whimpering because things are going hardly with me?  There is no joy in the soul that has forgotten what God prizes.

If, as I recall what God remembers about me, I find He is not what He used to be to me, let it produce shame and humiliation, because that shame will bring the godly sorrow that works repentance.

Taken from the text found in Oswald Chambers’ MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST:  “Recall What God Remembers.”  

From Jeremiah 2:1-2:  “The Word of the Lord came to me, saying:  ‘Go and proclaim in the hearing of Jerusalem, Thus says the Lord:  I remember the devotion of your youth, your love as a bride, how you followed me in the wilderness, in a land now sown.

It is a joy that God never abandons His children.  He guides faithfully all who listen to His directions.

From Isaiah 9:6:  “For a child has been born for us, a Son given to us; authority rests upon His shoulders; and He is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
