Usually by this time in the school year—after class trips in the heat and humidity and helping kids struggle through final exams and tackling inventory and paper work and keep track of all the details regarding graduation—I’m just plain tired and in great need of an attitude adjustment.
Proverbs 25:11 says, “Like apples of gold in settings of silver
Is a word spoken in right circumstances.” So I Iook to the wise words of godly men and women to help readjust my thinking and refresh my heart.
Here are five of my recent favorites for changing my perspective on life:
“Take a breath. It’s not a bad life, just a bad day.”
“God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him.” ~Jim Elliot~
“God judges what we give by what we keep.” ~George Mueller~
“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” ~C. S. Lewis~
I’m praying that at least one of these quotes will be an encouragement to you. Thanks for by stopping by today! Blessings, friends!
