Hope: pure and simple Part 1

I just finished a little book by Max Lucado titled, Hope: pure and simple. It list 316 thoughts to lift your soul. Each one is numbered. I have listed the number with the quote below:

24 God rested after six days of work, and the world didn't collapse. What makes us think it will if we do?

25 God is greater than our weakness. In fact, our weakness reveals how great God is.

32 Nothing comes your way that has not first passed through the filter of God's love.

35 You aren't an accident; you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God.

40 Don't think God is listening to your prayers? Indeed He is. But He may have higher plans.

43 When you turn to God for help, He runs to you to help.

49 Write today's worries in sand. Chisel yesterday's victories in stone.

52 If you want to touch God's heart, use the name He loves to hear. Call Him Father.

76 You cannot be anything you want to be. But you can be everything God wants you to be.

84 In every age of history, on every page of Scripture, the truth is revealed: God allows us to make our own choices.

85 The God-centered life works. And it recues us from a life that doesn't.

86 Rather than worry about anything, "pray about everything."

88 What people think of us matters not. What they think of God matters all.

90 You may go days without thinking of God, but there's never a moment when He's not thinking of you.

92 The purpose of prayer is not to change God but to change us.

100 When all of earth turns against you, all of heaven turns toward you.

I will continue to list more from this book at a later date. To order this book click here!
