Christian 1-liners and a question

A dear friend of mine sent this to me via email... and I thought I would just post it here--- so that it wouldn't fill up everyones' in-box!




Christian One Liners


Don't let your worries get the
best of you; remember, Moses started
out as a basket case.
{it's nice to look at the story of Moses-- this way...Hey--we might be related !...}
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Some people are kind, polite, and
sweet-spirited until you try to sit in their pews.
{Makes me happy-- we use chairs at our church--
although it almost seems we have assigned seats...!}

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Many folks want to serve God,
but only as advisors.
{this reminds me of family I know...and "love"}
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

It is easier to preach ten sermons
than it is to live one.
{I know this to be true, --I try hard not to preach to my kids-
- but instead show them the lesson~}


*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

The good Lord didn't create anything
without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close.
{Mosquitoes and Nutria equal pests-- in my opinion!}

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

When you get to your wit's end,
you'll find God lives there.
(I have been in this place)
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

People are funny; they want the front
of the bus, the middle of the road, and
the back of the church.
(I like the back of the church, so I can see others,
and leave if my tears overwhelm me-
- One day I will graduate to the front of the church, I hope, and Pray!)

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Opportunity may knock once, but temptation
bangs on your front door forever.

(temptation= weeds ~ I am forever trying to get rid of the weeds)
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Quit griping about your church;
if it was perfect, you couldn't belong.
{I don't often gripe about my church, I just wish it was closer to me,
or gas was CHEAPER~ So,I could afford to go more often.}


*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

If the church wants a better preacher,
it only needs to pray for the one it has.
{I like our Preacher-- I think of him as a brainy-iac
who found out the Bible was his favorite form of Rocket Science,
which makes sense because he used to work in the physic's industries.}


*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

God Himself does not propose to judge
a man until he is dead. So why should you?
(enough said!)
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Some minds are like concrete
thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
(so many family members define this--so...so... many!)(mine..that is--!)
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Peace starts with a smile.
I'm smiling...gritting my teeth... but smiling!
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

I don't know why some people
change churches; what difference does
it make which one you stay home from?
{staying home for us is only when someone is sick, or there isn't enough gas...}
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

A lot of church members who are singing
'Standing on the Promises'
are just sitting on the premises.
[This topic was apart of this last Sunday's service...]

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

We were called to be witnesses,
not lawyers or judges.
[I wonder if this involves parenthood?]
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Be ye fishers of men. You catch
them - He'll clean them.
[God is good, since I don't clean fish...]
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Coincidence is when God
chooses to remain anonymous.
[anonymous-- yup this has happened (in our lives..)a few times]
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Don't put a question mark
where God put a period.
*Amen!*

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Don't wait for 6 strong men
to take you to church.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Forbidden fruits create many jams.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

God doesn't call the qualified,
He qualifies the called.
(This is so true -- for parents of kids that are...special!)

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

God grades on the cross, not the curve.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

God loves everyone, but probably prefers
'fruit of the spirit' over a 'religious nut!'

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

God promises a safe landing,
not a calm passage.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

He who angers you, controls you!

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

If
God is your Co-pilot - swap seats!

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

Prayer:

Don't give God instructions -- just report for duty!
[I love this one-liner.. it is really illustrates:
the point of practicing patience and prayer works!]

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

The task ahead of us is never as
great as the Power behind us.
[This is something that mothers' need to know and understand! ]
*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

The Will of God never takes you to
where the Grace of God will not protect you.


*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

We don't change the message,
the message changes us.
{I hope that the message that changes us--
is only from God!,
beware that other guy.. the devil-- he's sneaky!}

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

You can tell how big a person is
by what it takes to discourage him.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

The best mathematical equation
I have ever seen:
1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given.

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
The things that are written in blue and are in () {} []
are my own personal thoughts..
What do you think
?
I want to post about this weekend,
but I am trying to figure out how
to write the post without creating
conflict if the people mentioned read it---
any ideas?
I think posting would help, me--
get out some emotion-- but I don't want to further anger family ~

Uh oh! No clue here! If they read your blog and your talking about them, I am sure they will figure out that you are talking about them.
