When God is at the center of your life, you worship, when He’s not, you worry.

From Psalm 62:8:  “Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.”

Rick Warren Quote

It is easier to stay out of temptation than to get out of it.

From 1 Corinthians 10:13:  “No testing has overtaken you that is not common to everyone.  God is faithful, and He will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing He will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it.”

During my days of deepest grief, in all of my shock, sorrow, and struggle, I sat at the feet of God.  I literally spent hours each day reading God’s Word, meditating on Scripture, and praying.  I intentionally spent a significant amount of time being still before God.

From Psalm 23:1-4:  “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters; He restores my soul.  He leads me in right paths for His name’s sake.  Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff–they comfort me.”

Those who follow the crowd usually get lost in it.

From Galatians 1:10:  “Am I now seeking human approval, or God’s approval?  Or am I trying to please people?  If I were still pleasing people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
