Other People’s Words

“There is nothing whatever between my Love and my heart, nothing around to distract me from Him. He shines upon me and makes me rejoice, and has atoned to me for all that was taken from me and done against me. There is no flower in all the world more blessed or more satisfied than I, for I look up to Him as a weaned child and say ‘Whom have I in heaven but Thee, and there is none upon earth that I desire but Thee.” -Hannah Hurnard (Hinds Feet on High Places)

“I think you learn true humility from handling success and blessing well and being grateful that we are Kings & Sons of God, heirs and joint heirs, the one that is going to marry the Father’s son, the light of the world, the salt of the earth, etc. ” -Joe Dittrich

“When your call to be a compassionate healer gets mixed up with your need to be accepted, the people you want to heal will end up pulling you into their world and robbing you of your healing gift.” -Henri Nouwen

“Most assume that trust is quiet, serene, selfless dependence on God. Though there is an element of truth to that view of trust, more often than not such serene faith is a byproduct of wanting very little from God. It is frighteningly easy to appear trusting when in fact one is simply dead (in denial of wounds, hunger, or struggle of the heart).” – Dr. Dan Allender (Wounded Heart)
