here + now.
I love palm trees and college campuses (and working on a college campus surrounded by palm trees).☀️🌴❤️
There are a lot of unknowns in this life. And when the hypotheticals and the “what-ifs” start swirling through my brain (read: attacking with the vengeance of a thousand Trojan fighters), this truth is put on repeat: “We don’t have grace for that yet.” God gives grace, sufficient, beautiful, breathtaking grace, for right now. This moment. Today. We don’t have grace for hypotheticals, because God doesn’t live in the realm of what-ifs. But, because He changes not, He will give the grace necessary for us to survive all the days He leads us into. When the what-ifs become reality or when the curveballs come, the grace we need to follow Christ also comes. Yes, there are a lot of unknowns in this life. And all of them are fully known by the grace-giving, covenant-keeping God who fully knows us and provides everything we need for every circumstance He ordains for His highest glory and our deepest joy. Because of the cross, we can now rest and rejoice in the middle of unknowns. We don’t have grace for those yet, but we have Him, and He will hold us fast. ❤️
“My hope lives not because I am not a sinner, but because I am a sinner for whom Christ died; my trust is not that I am holy, but that being unholy, He is my righteousness. My faith rests not upon what I am, or shall be, or feel, or know, but in what Christ is, in what He has done, and in what He is now doing for me.” -Charles Spurgeon

Monday Morning Munch No. 162 – 7 Quotes on Prayer by Charles Spurgeon

7 spurgeon quotes on prayer.jpg

The following quotes are from Spurgeon on Prayer, a compilation of culled gems from Charles Spurgeon, which I highly recommend it to anyone. 

You must expect to feel weakest when you are enjoying your greatest triumph.

If [God] has said much about prayer, it is because He knows we have much need of it.

A prayerless soul is a Christless soul.

When God seems to close His ear, we must not therefore close our mouths, but rather cry with more earnestness.

If you would reach to something higher than ordinary groveling experience, look to the rock that is higher than you (Ps. 62), and gaze with the eye of faith through the window of importunate prayer. When you open the window on your side, it will not be bolted on the other.

If ever one of woman born might have lived without prayer, it was our spotless, perfect Lord, and yet none was ever so much in supplication as He!

God loves to see the hearts of His people glowing towards Himself. Let us give to God our hearts, all blazing with love, and seek His grace, that the fire may never be quenched, for it will not burn if the Lord does not keep it burning.
