Truth from Psalm 40

"I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
and he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
and steadied me as I walked along.
He has given me a new song to sing,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
They will put their trust in the Lord." (Psalm 40)

I'm a huge fan of quotes and when I find ones that are inspiring or thought provoking I tend to write them down, resulting in quotes written down all over the place in my house!

I thought I'd share a few that have been inspiring me and/or causing me to think lately:

"All endings are also beginnings. We just don't know it at the time." (Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet In Heaven)

"God asks no one whether he/she will accept life. That is not the choice. You must take it. The only choice is how." (Henry Ward Beecher)

"Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies within us while we live." (Norman Cousins)

And a Bible verse that has been on my mind a lot lately:

"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, 'This is the way; walk in it.'" (Isaiah 30:21)
