God’s love is like a gentle, warm, shower; you have to stand in it for it to work.
Ask 20 different people why they believe in God, most likely you will get 20 different answers. Why so many answers? Because God cares enough to help each person find their own reason for their belief. If you don’t have your reason, ask God to help you find a reason to believe in him.
Often love is thought as an action entirely from the heart. But is it? How can we love something we do not know? How can we recognize love if we do not know what it is? The impetus for love starts in our head, but then moves to the heart.
Therefore we cannot truly say we love someone until we know the person. It is also true with God. Unless we know God, we can never truly love God.
True success comes from the realization of what we have accomplished with the gifts God has given us, not from the approval of others, fortunes, or fame.
A great quote from CS Lewis. Often we misunderstand what it means to be humble; humility is mistakenly thought of not acknowledging our gifts and what we have accomplished. We should rejoice in the gifts we have been given, and rejoice in what we have accomplished by using these God-given gifts. However, we should not focus on what these gifts do for ourselves, but what they can do for others.
