Words of My Life: Words

In ongoing celebration of my Jubilee year of 50 years in ministry and 70 years of life, I am sharing some of the words of my life. This post is about some of the words God has taught me.


I love words.  I write them and speak them.  I love to play with them, learn new words, use words correctly—and help others use them correctly.  I desire to let them influence life—my life and others’ lives.

I especially love to take the truths I learn about living in God and put them into pithy sayings that I will remember and apply.  Here are 25 that have been helpful to me.

1. God is God and God is good.

2. God is more committed to my character than my comfort. But He comforts me while he works on my character.

3. The work of God is done on our knees. Then we go find out what happened.

4. Never settle for less than God’s best.

5. Tell God the truth about how you feel. He can handle it.

6. Thank God—even for the hard stuff. This expresses trust and opens the door for Hisgood to come from it.

7. Look for the good—be alert to see God’s amazing love at work.

8. He knows, He cares, He is able.

9. Unconditional love doesn’t require love in return.

10. God never gives up on me.

11. God is always looking for ways to do good to me.

12. His way is always better than my way.

13. He made me just the way I am to do what He created me to do.

14. What he asks me to do, He enables me to do.

15. The greener grass was spray painted by the evil one.

16. God gives mercy for the past, grace for the present, hope for the future.

17. God is singing a love song to each of us.

18. I love the word impossible—because it isn’t in God’s vocabulary.

19. God’s commands are promises.

20. God raises me up to more than I can be.

21. The devil is a liar who tries to masquerade as truth.

22. God remembers that I am dust—and takes the broken pieces of my life and makes them into something beautiful.

23. Sometimes I need to take things off the throne of my life and put them on the altar.

24. Women are mission critical to the God’s plans.

25. God desires to do more in me and through me than I can ask or imagine.

What about you?  What is some truth God keeps reminding you of?
