“Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.”

“Dear Jesus…how foolish of me to have called for human help when You are here.” 

“There are no ‘if’s’ in God’s world. And no placess that are safer than other places. The center of His will is our only safety – let us pray that we may always know it!” 

“Some knowledge is too heavy…you cannot bear it…your Father will carry it until you are able.” 

“Happiness isn’t something that depends on our surroundings…It’s something we make inside ourselves.” 

“What wings are to a bird, and sails to a ship, so is prayer to the soul.” 

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” 

“If you look at the world, you’ll be distressed. If you look within, you’ll be depressed. If you look at God you’ll be at rest.” 

“Hold everything in your hands lightly, otherwise it hurts when God pries your fingers open.” 

“Do you know what hurts so very much? It’s love. Love is the strongest force in the world, and when it is blocked that means pain. There are two things we can do when this happens. We can kill that love so that it stops hurting. But then of course part of us dies, too. Or we can ask God to open up another route for that love to travel.”


C.S. Lewis

“You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” 

“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.” “Nothing you have not given away will ever really be yours.” “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” 

“When we lose one blessing, another is often most unexpectedly given in its place.” “A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.” “But courage, child: we are all between the paws of the true Aslan.” “I think that if God forgives us we must forgive ourselves. Otherwise, it is almost like setting up ourselves as a higher tribunal than Him.”

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” “There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” “God can’t give us peace and happiness apart from Himself because there is no such thing.”
