Wednesday in the Word-Tidbits worth reading

I am one of those people that walk around with a pen, a writing tablet, journal or something to make notes on or you can rest assured I have something nearby. Are you like that? Sometimes someone can say something that I want to remember or it is so profound to me at the moment that I just have to write it down. I have notes all in my Bible. Some things is simply what I feel the Lord is saying to me through the reading of His Word while other things I have jotted down may be something someone else said. I love to look back and read my notes at times. I also have this little book that has little one sentence phrases that others has stated that I love to go back and read at times too. CRAZY at how sometimes it seems to be JUST what I needed to read that day. So for today, I'd like to share some of what I call, "Tidbits". Maybe one of these little tidbits speaks to you.

** Don't worry about what you do not understand...Worry about what you do understand in the bible but do not live by. Corrie ten Boom

** You will be able to trust Him only to the extent that you know Him!
Kay Arthur

** Weave the unveiling fabric of God's Word through your heart and mind. It will hold strong, even if the rest of life unravels.
Gigi Graham Tehividjian

** We are never stronger than the moment we admit we are weak.
Beth Moore

** Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.
Corrie ten Boom

**  Pray as though everything depends on God. Work as though everything depends on you.
St. Augustine

** Why do we as Christians settle with the mindset of "A little dab will do you" when we should have GREAT expectations from God? Do we expect GOD to show up and show out?
James Croft

** We have to pray with our eyes on God...not on the difficulties.
Oswald Chambers

** If you live for the approval of others you will die by their rejections.
Rick Warren

** Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.
Dr. Seuss

** Lower your expectations of earth. It isn't heaven so do not expect it to be!
Max Lucado
  
** I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but through me.
Jesus (John 14:6)

I hope that one of the little tidbits has spoken to your heart today in some way. Always be alert to what others say....you never know when their words can be a source of comfort, a nugget of truth for you or a simple reminder that God loves you with an everlasting love no matter where you are right now in your life.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. An old friend told me something I’ll never forget. He said, “If it is of God, it will be Godly.” I serve and amazing awesome God that is not the author of confusion or discourse. To know my God is to know true love. Thank you for sharing these tidbits. I have enjoyed all of them. Ronald Mann

  5. Hi Cindy! This was so good! Love the quotes and yes, sometimes the Lord lets us see just what we need for the day. In the midst of all the horrible things that are happening right now we have to remember, God is good and He is good all the time. Blessings, sweet friend,

  6. Yes, I do love having a notebook...I take note of many quotations and have asked my friends if I may use theirs. People say fascinating things all the time. Corrie ten Boom is a favorite of mine.

  7. Many of them did, Cindy. You shared one just for me (the Rick Warren one) so I wrote that down in my journal (steno pad). I smiled and thought "Cindy is such a classy lady, I bet her journal is real pretty with flowers and ribbons or something!"

    This is a wonderful, loving post and your words so loving.
    Love you back,
    Mary

    1. I think Mary that Rick Warren one has spoke to many. I know it has to me! Thank you for your sweet words. You are precious! So funny about my journals. You would not believe the different kinds I have....all colors...some plain, fancy and well...each one is different. So many ladies over the years had given me a journal and all are different. My latest one....Hot pink and Black! LOVE IT!

  9. I have so many notes in the margins of my Bible....I just have to write some things down. My Bible is getting old but I can't stand the thought of a new one that would not have all my notes and memos in it. Loved all the quotes!

  11. Good Morning Cindy,
    These are beautiful quotes to share and every single one of them resonated with me. Once I lowered my expectations of earth ( Lucado) and truly, truly leaned on our Heavenly Father my burdens became less heavy. Oh, I still have them -they just feel lighter. Praise God for His Blessings. I look forward to these posts so much, thank you for blessing my day.
    Hugs,
    Jemma

  12. I've often wished I had a pen and paper to write down something I've heard...might have to keep some in my purse. Great quotes. I really enjoyed this post!

  13. The Rick Warren quote really is so true. There was a time in my life that I thought I HAD to have So and So's approval in order to go on with life, but when rejection would come it truly was a kind of "death" for me. I'm grateful to be the wiser for it now. Thank you, my sweet friend, for sharing these Tidbits with us today. xo

  14. I am liking this one - Pray as though everything depends on God. Work as though everything depends on you. I always think prayer should be followed by action . . .

  15. I'm catching up a bit - again! We were out of town for a few days without internet. Loved reading these tibits. My dear, little mother used to have a notebook and pen on the nightstand beside her at night. She often woke up and had thoughts she didn't want to forget. Sometimes they were thoughts she wanted to share in her Bible Study or ministry with children; other times they were creative thoughts about things she loved to do in her ministry to the congregations where my father was the pastor. There times she had humorous thoughts she didn't want to lose. We often heard about her thoughts over breakfast the next morning,
