Fuel for the Fire!

“God created you . . . every little detail about you. He gave you life and special gifts to fulfill a unique purpose in this world . . . a mission He planned just for you. God knows you better and loves you more than anyone ever could. He is your wise Father and faithful friend who takes great joy in you.”

“However humble our circumstances or undramatic our talents, our true purpose has been revealed. We are meant to be this person at this time and place. Not only for ourselves, but for you and other people—we are meant to make this particular contribution to the world. And so we must do it well. Do it with faith and patience, with all our strength and passion. And in so doing discover who we really are.” -- Marjorie Holmes

“We forget in this day of instant satisfaction that none of our talents come full-grown. It’s only as we cultivate them that they begin to mature and multiply. The more we use them, the more others are blessed through them. Soon we discover that God has given us a multitude of gifts and equipped us with endless resources.” – Hope McDonald

“There is only one way to bring peace to the heart, joy to the mind, and beauty to life; it is to accept and do the will of God.” -- William Barclay
