“You Know, Trust The Magic of Beginnings”
“It is one thing to read the Scriptures and affirm their truth. But until you are in the trenches of trial, until you are faced with life circumstances that test your faith, until you are pressed to the absolute limit of your physical and emotional capacity, until you face the unrelenting stress of ongoing trauma, you never really know how you’ll respond to what you may have embraced so easily during a comfortable Bible study.” (Kevin Malarkey, The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven: A Remarkable Account of Miracles, Angels and Life beyond This World)
“My heart is so small
it’s almost invisible.
How can You place
such big sorrows in it?
“Look,” He answered,
“your eyes are even smaller,
yet they behold the world.” (Rumi)
“Do not feel lonely; the entire universe is inside you.” (Rumi)
“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.” (Seneca)
“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.” (Tom Bodett)
“When you begin to expect that there is always room for improvement, you put yourself in the driver’s seat. Why wait for someone else to figure it out or do it? Expect that you are the one. Expect great outcomes. Expect that you are the best candidate and that you will achieve your goals.” (Lorii Myers, No Excuses, The Fit Mind-Fit Body Strategy Book)
“And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.” (Meister Eckhart)
