  • DAWN shared from Return to Me (The Restoration Chronicles Book #1) by Lynn Austin
    “You know that following God means all or nothing, don’t you? A man of God does the right thing whether it’s popular with the rest of the crowd or not. He speaks the truth and isn’t afraid to challenge others when they’re doing wrong. Men of God don’t look for power or riches or man’s approval but for God’s approval. Each day in a hundred different ways you must choose all over again whether you still want to follow Him or not.”
  • DAWN shared from Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food by Lysa TerKeurst
    Mentally. I had to decide I was tired of settling, tired of compromising. What happens when you delete “com” from the word compromise? You’re left with a “promise.” We were made for more than compromise. We were made for God’s promises in every area of our lives.
  • DAWN shared from The God Who Sees You: Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible by Tammy Maltby, Anne Christian Buchanan
    1 Corinthians 13 paints an intimate portrait of a God … • who is patient, always willing to give a second chance … and a third, and a hundredth.20 • who is kind, treating us with sympathy and caring.21 • who is not proud or boastful—although He could be. Instead, He’s gentle and humble.22 • who is not easily angered—and once we repent of our wrongs, He forgets about them completely.23 • who rejoices in truth. In fact, He is truth.24 • who can be trusted. He is faithful, and He never gives up. He will never let you down.25
  • DAWN shared from Let God Change Your Life: How to Know and Follow Jesus by Greg Laurie
    A man once compared his new and old natures to two dogs that ceaselessly scrap and fight against one another. He said, “My new nature and old nature are like two dogs that are constantly fighting, but I decide which dog will win.” “How do you decide?” someone asked. “The one I want to win,” he said, “I feed the most.”
  • DAWN shared from The Ragamuffin Gospel: Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Burnt Out by Brennan Manning
    Something is radically wrong when the local church rejects a person accepted by Jesus—when a harsh, judgmental, and unforgiving sentence is passed on homosexuals; when a divorcée is denied communion; when the child of a prostitute is refused baptism; when an unlaicized priest is forbidden the sacraments. Jesus comes to the ungodly, even on Sunday morning. His coming ends ungodliness and makes us worthy. Otherwise, we are establishing at the heart of Christianity an utterly ungodly and unworthy preoccupation with works.
