"Satan's number-one objective is to destroy our joy of faith. We have one offensive weapon: the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God. But what many Christians fail to realize is that we can't draw the sword from someone else's scabbard. If we don't wear it, we can't wield it. If the Word of God does not abide in us, we will reach for it in vain when the enemy strikes." ~John Piper
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and heart fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. ~Psalm 73:25-26

O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, All because we do not carry Everything to God in prayer! ~Joseph Scriven
"In some sense the most benevolent, generous person in the world seeks his own happiness in doing good to others, because he places his happiness in their good. His mind is so enlarged as to take them, as it were, into himself. Thus when they are happy, he feels it; he partakes with them, and is happy in their happiness. This is so far from being inconsistent with the freeness of beneficence, that, on the contrary, free benevolence and kindness consist in it." ~Jonathan Edwards
He is no fool who gives that which he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. ~Jim Elliot
“One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you can't utter.” ~James Earl Jones
