Author Quotes

You didn?t choose God. He chose you. When you stop feeling hurt by everyone and plotting your comeback, he has some very important things he wants you to accomplish with your life.

You might lose battles in your life time. However, every person that stands bravely on the side of justice, for people that have no voice, wins the true battle---Gods.

Your body is a temple, not a daily dumping ground for another person?s pain, anger, betrayal, judgment, hypocrisy, denial, games, jealousy or blame. When you are being psychologically, spiritually or emotionally abused by a person, and they don?t care how it hurts you, then it is time to leave what is polluting your relationship with God.

When you are near the middle of your life, often God will do outrageous things to knock you back on course.

When you invite people to share in your miracle, you create future allies during rough weather.

When you turn your back on hypocrisy and do nothing you don?t change the hearts of others you change yours.

Winning or losing achieves the same result--change.

You can find anyone that will tell you what you want to hear, but the only one worth valuing is the one that tells you what you need to learn.

You don?t go to church to find God; you bring him with you?attitude.

You need to forgive people you don't understand; if not, try to understand people you want to forgive.

Your current situation = the life expectations you have accepted as completed, unless you change your comfort zone to create a better life.

When you are no longer afraid is when you can be yourself.

When you judge other people without wanting to know the true story behind their actions, is usually when there is something inside of you that is so broken that if you found out what you believed about them was a lie, you wouldn?t want to accept it or make amends.

When you?re given the gift of truth, you spend a lot of time trying to tone it down because it is already offensive enough.

With dark raven paper and twinkling white ink, I wrote my heart in the night?s sky.

You can have regret from yesterday, fear tomorrow but peace today by sharing your heart?s deepest feelings. A life spent being fearful of showing your soul is a life not worth living.

You don?t have to say everything to be a light. Sometimes a fire built on a hill will bring interested people to your campfire.

You were the poem I never knew how to write because no words could describe the wind you cannot see, but feel.

Your dignity can be mocked, abused, compromised, toyed with, lowered and even badmouthed, but it can never be taken from you. You have the power today to reset your boundaries, restore your image, start fresh with renewed values and rebuild what has happened to you in the past.

When you are offered a miracle take it. Otherwise, show God your tail so he can move on and give it to someone who doesn't want to be in hell anymore.

When you least expect it is when the person you always dreamt of will finally show up.

When you?re in love with two people, always choose the second. The fact that you are constantly thinking of the second person makes it obvious that the first will never fulfill you, unless the second person did not fulfill you either. At this point, you have to choose the third person because God is getting a little tired of your inattention and indecisiveness, and is planning on sending a fourth person into your life just to slap you around with the bible for not entering the promised land.

Words don?t have the power to hurt you, unless that person meant more to you than you are willing to confess.

You can ignore your heart and mind, but it will always find its way home.

You don?t need to wait for God to show up, in order to be rescued from your bad situation. God has been trying to get your attention for a really long time.
