"God is not looking for brilliant men, is not depending upon eloquent men, is
not shut up to the use of talented men in sending His gospel out in the world.
God is looking for broken men who have judged themselves in the light of the
cross of Christ. When He wants anything done, He takes up men who have come to
the end of themselves, whose confidence is not in themselves, but in God." H.A.
Wait on the Lord- "Expecting him to come to me in love, I quietly wait for his appearing; I wait upon him in service, and for him in faith. For God I wait and for him only: if he will manifest himself I shall have nothing more to wait for; but until he shall appear for my help I must wait on, hoping even in the depths. This waiting of mine is no mere formal act, my very soul is in it, -- "my soul doth wait."." by C. H. Spurgeon, Treasury of David (Psalm 27:14), Clapham, December, 1869
"Today remember that you beloved child of God are sustained and established by the one who is perfect peace. You can have the peace that surpasses understanding and yet understand that He is with you in all that you go through. Remember that 1 Corinthians 15:58 says, "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord."
