Great Quotes


"God is more willing to forgive your sin, than you are to confess them."  Charles Spurgeon

"Thirty seconds in confession…what inspiration is there with our heads remaining in the trash can of our sin."  Joseph Carroll



New hydrangea bought at Costco!

I really love those quotes.  How many times do we stay in the pit because we keep dwelling on our sin.  Confess it and then thank Him for his forgiveness.  He remembers it no more.

I am still pondering all I heard this weekend and trying to put it into practice.

  1. Love the quotes too! One of the best things about retreats is coming home and savoring the moments and the things, that were taught, and applying them. Your Hydrangea blooms are beautiful, one of my favorite flowers, I have not had much luck in growing them in times past but I keep working on them. ~smile~
    Enjoy your day,
    Sue

  2. Great quotes! I'm reading even if I can't comment often. Hubby is not home at the moment so I have the computer. It is mine. All mine. For about an hour. :)

  7. Such wonderful quotes. Charles Spurgeon is my very favorite of what my class calls, "Debbie's old dead men", (I have no idea why they think one can be old AND dead, but that's what they call my favorite old commentators. )

    On the topic? I can say with this stuff with my mouth a hundred times, yet there are times when the old habit of dwelling creeps into my head. A favorite trick of Satan, I know.

  8. Hello Mrs. Rabe! I am stopping by via Cheryl's blog. I saw your name and it reminded me of someone I knew in college who was also a Rabe :)

    Your blog is simply wonderful - it's a blessing to meet other Christian ladies online. I am a happy new follower and I eagerly look forward to visiting again. Have a beautiful week!
