When things aren't working out as you wish, be patient. Stop trying to move ahead of God. His timing is perfect. Trust Him.
Too often we spend all of our time seeking God for answers to our problems when what we should be doing is just seeking God.
Don't lose hope. When you are down to nothing, God is up to something.
When I get to heaven, all I really want is for God to look at me, smile, and say, "You made a difference in this world. I am proud."
