success and life’s moments…

     “Success has a way of weaning us of our dependency on God. In the throes of success it is easy to take responsibility for maintaining  our success. Without ever meaning to, we shift from a God orientation to a self orientation.”

             ~ Andy Stanley

 

     “I was brought up in a Christian environment where, because God had to be given pre-eminence, nothing else was allowed to be important. I have broken through to the position that because God exists, everything has significance.”

             ~Evangeline Paterson

 

     “Do not forget that the value and interest of life is not so much to do conspicuous things…as to do ordinary things with the perception of their enormous.”

            ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

 

     “Everything we are, everything that is said to us, everything that happens to us is some kind of call from God. In fact, everything that happens is God’s call to us either to accept what we should not change or to change what we should not accept so that the Presence of God can flourish where we are…   

     “Finding God is a matter of living every minute of life to its ultimate.”

~ Joan Chittister
