The Greatest Answer Has Already Been Given...

Dear God, we are not our own...we know we were bought with a price...a very loving, gracious price that none of us could ever great a gift is that! Yet you know our feeble frame, how very weak it is. Please help us to trust in this waiting time, remembering that however things work out in our lives, we are first and foremost here for Your glory and pleasure, and that the greatest Gift we could ever want has already been given us. Amen
"The Lord Jesus left His home in heaven, came down to this earth, and gave His life, not so we could live for ourselves and our pleasures, but so we could be free to live for the One whose pleasure we were created." ~A Heart at Rest flip calendar, 9/23, by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
"There are some prayers that are followed by a Divine silence because we are not yet ripe for all we have asked; there are others which are so followed because we are ripe for more. We do not always know the full strength of our own capacity; we have to be prepared for receiving greater blessings than we have ever dreamed of." ~George Matheson 
"More prayer, more exercise of faith, more patient waiting, and the result will be blessing, abundant blessing. Thus I have found it many hundreds of times, and therefore I continually say to myself, 'Hope thou in God.'" ~George Muller
"Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from Him." ~Psalm 62:5
