There are many of us that are willing to do great things for the Lord, but few of us are willing to do little things.  D.L. Moody

Spread out your petition before God, and then say, “Thy will, not mine, be done.” The sweetest lesson I have learned in God’s school is to let the Lord choose for me.  D.L. Moody

Here’s what you need to keep in mind. You no longer have yesterday. You do not yet have tomorrow. You have only today. This is the day the Lord has made. Live in it.   Max Lucado

Consider Jesus. Know Jesus. Learn what kind of Person it is you say you trust and love and worship. Soak in the shadow of Jesus. Saturate your soul with the ways of Jesus. Watch Him. Listen to Him. Stand in awe of Him. Let Him overwhelm you with the way He is.   John Piper

I have held many things in my hands, and have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.   Martin Luther

What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.  Helen Keller

The more wants we have, the further we are from God, and the nearer we approach him, the better can we dispense with everything that is not Himself.   Madame Guyon

I would fain know all that I need, and all that I may. I leave God’s secrets to himself. It is happy for me that God makes me of his court, and not of his council.   Joseph Hall

Content makes poor men rich; discontent makes rich men poor. Unknown

It is His joy that remains in us that makes our joy full.   A.B. Simpson

When you become satisfied with God, however, everything else so loses its charm that He can give it to you without harm.   A.B. Simpson

As long as a man is alive and out of hell, he cannot have any cause to complain.   Charles Spurgeon

The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.   Chuck Swindoll

Grant that we may hold the world with a loose hand.   William Tiptaft

Just remaining quietly in the presence of God, listening to Him, being attentive to Him, requires a lot of courage and know-how.   Thomas Merton

Being “contented” ought to mean in English, as it does in French, being pleased. Being content with an attic ought not to mean being unable to move from it and resigned to living in it; it ought to mean appreciating all there is in such a position.   G.K. Chesterton

I will not meddle with that which I cannot mend.   Thomas Fuller

These things are not strange, Small One, though they are beyond our senses.   C.S. Lewis

The very nature of Joy makes nonsense of our common distinction between having and wanting.   C.S. Lewis

There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, “All right, then, have it your way.”   C.S. Lewis

You play the hand you’re dealt. I think the game’s worthwhile.   C.S. Lewis

A man who is eating or lying with his wife or preparing to go to sleep in humility, thankfulness and temperance, is, by Christian standards, in an infinitely higher state than one who is listening to Bach or reading Plato in a state of pride.   C.S. Lewis

If the sun of God’s countenance shine upon me, I may well be content to be wet with the rain of affliction.   Joseph Hall

The joy of the Lord will arm us against the assaults of our spiritual enemies and put our mouths out of taste for those pleasures with which the tempter baits his hooks.   Matthew Henry

Instead of complaining at his lot, a contented man is thankful that his condition and circumstances are no worse than they are. Instead of greedily desiring something more than the supply of his present need, he rejoices that God still cares for him. Such an one is “content” with such as he has.   A.W. Pink

There are many wells today, but they are dry. There are many hungry souls today that are empty. But let us come to Jesus and take Him at His Word and we will find wells of salvation, and be able to draw waters out of the well of salvation, for Jesus is that well.   William J. Seymour

He who is able to accept everything gladly from the Lord – including darkness, dryness, flatness – and completely disregard self is he who lives for Him.   Watchman Nee

Great offices will have great talents, and God gives to every man the virtue, temper, understanding, taste, that lifts him into life, and lets him fall just in the niche he was ordained to fill.  William Cowper

If my life is surrendered to God, all is well. Let me not grab it back, as though it were in peril in His hand but would be safer in mine!   Elisabeth Elliot

If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.   Martin Luther King, Jr.

If the wicked flourish, and thou suffer, be not discouraged; they are fatted for destruction, thou art dieted for health.   Thomas Fuller
