Let us in the same way show to the people of the world who think our religion to be slavery, that it is a delight and a joy; that it is no more a burden to us to pray than it is for the fish to swim; that it is no more bondage for us to serve God than for a bird to fly. True godliness is our natural element now that we have a new nature given us by the Spirit of God. Charles Spurgeon (via craigtowens)

You can do more than pray after you have prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed. Pray often, for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge to Satan. John Bunyan (via fearless-and-bold-for-christ)

If you allow it, life will give you more reasons to be broken than to be okay. Life is not for us, it’s against us. God is for us and He’ll never leave us nor forsake us. He intervened when He sent His Son, His grace is enough and we’re called to be believers and shine Him in the midst of life. Being a Christian isn’t about having a better day, it’s about becoming more like Him. (via sonofhislove)
