"If the Good Lord is testing you, it’s because he wants you to love him more."St. Andre Bessette, as quoted in Frère André disait souvent… Recueil de paroles de Frère André rapportées par ses amis. (via twocrowns)
"We must be ready to allow ourselves to be interrupted by God…. We must not…assume that our schedule is our own to manage, but allow it to be arranged by God."Dietrich Bonhoeffer, German pastor, theologian, and Nazi resister (via tiannadiyanni)
"A truly humble man is sensible of his natural distance from God; of his dependence on Him; of the insufficiency of his own power and wisdom; and that it is by God’s power that he is upheld and provided for, and that he needs God’s wisdom to lead and guide him, and His might to enable him to do what he ought to do for Him"Jonathan Edwards (via community4christ)
