 “Embedded in the larger story of redemption is a principle we must not miss: God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things in the lives of others.”
~Paul David Tripp~

“When you are beyond your ability, God has you right where He wants you.”
~R. Thomas~

“Hardship often prepares an ordinary person for an extraordinary destiny.”
~C. S. Lewis~

`”Your ordinary story bears the fingerprints of an extraordinary God.”

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Blessings, friends!

  1. I love quotes. Especially gardening quotes. I’m always on the lookout for them and add them to my garden journal. Thanks for the Corrie Ten Boom one. I love her books.

  2. “When you are beyond your ability, God has you right where He wants you.”
    ~R. Thomas~

    I love this quote. Editing Cherished Magazine sometimes makes me feel like it is beyond my ability . It has put me right in the place of having to lean on God and put my focus on him and His ability!

  3. I want to be right where HE wants me! Your neighbor at TWW!

  4. I love these quotes, Renee. Thank you for sharing them. Your neighbor at Holley’s

  5. I like thinking that my ordinary story bears the fingerprints of an extraordinary God. Humbling. Thank you for encouragement!

  6. Hello, stopping by from Christian Fellowship Friday. Thank you for the encouragement on this Friday afternoon! Hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂

  7. What a great Corrie Ten Boom quote! I linked up after you at Give Me Grace today. Have a great week!

  8. Thank you for sharing these powerful quotes at The Weekend Brew!
