Nominate bloggers each day!
Once again, I’ve chosen some Rick Warren quotes (no, I can’t just narrow it down to one!😉), but instead of being society-focused, these ones are more personal. There’s so many hurting people out there (as I touched on in Day #2), but as God’s Word says,
“We know that God works all things together for good for the ones who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
Romans 8:28 (CEB)
I’m so thankful to know there’s a lot of bloggers out there, Stu and Cynthia being just two examples, that have turned their past mistakes and hurts into ministries to help people going through similar things.
There’s a great quote that says:
So, based on those truths, here’s a few more quotes for today:
Great scriptures to remember when we’re going through a tough time, are tempted, or suffer the consequences from making bad decisions in life, are:
“¹³Don’t blame God when you are tempted! God cannot be tempted by evil, and he doesn’t use evil to tempt others. ¹⁴We are tempted by our own desires that drag us off and trap us.”
James 1:13-14 (CEB)
“He comforts us when we are in trouble, so that we can share this same comfort with others in trouble.”
2 Corinthians 1:4 CEV
Knowing that the bad things that happen to us are not God’s fault, but that He does allow them and other trials for our growth and so we can learn to comfort others, these quotes are good to keep in mind:
I’ll stop now 😉. I hope you enjoyed them!
My nominations for today are:
What are your thoughts on all these quotes? Do you have a favorite?
