I've been visiting and enjoying Tim Challies' blog for many years and I've often used the quotes he includes at the bottom of his posts. The quotes and the graphics are excellent.
On Tim's blog www.challies.com he posted the following, today:
"Several years ago Jules Koblun and I began to create graphics together. I would find an inspirational quote and she would use her graphic design skills to set it atop an image. Over the years we’ve created nearly 1500 of these quote graphics, covering a wide range of topics. I expect you’ve seen them embedded in the daily A La Carte posts and shared through social media.
Over the years I’ve had many requests for the definitive collection, so have finally assembled all these graphics at a new site, SquareQuotes.church. There you can find quote graphics by categories, keywords, or search. Once you’ve found them you can browse them, download them, or order prints on paper, canvas, or even metal. I’ve ordered several of these myself and can attest that the production quality is top-notch. If you’re after a quote on just about any topic relevant to Christians, I expect you’ll find something there! (Note: any costs are for printing only; I do not earn any profit from these graphics.)"
David's note: Check out these amazing quotes at this site: www.SquareQuotes.church

“I have often longed to save those whom I love from the strain and stress of suffering, but I never could; and today I have read these words in Coneybeare’s translation of Romans 5: 3-5.
Suffering, steadfastness, soundness, hope, love – what great words these are and how arresting is the order in which they are set. We may not change the order. Eternal Love set them in that order and Eternal Love will justify that order if only we go on in peace and are never offended in Him.”

His wonders to perform
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm
Of never failing skill
He treasures up His bright designs
And works HIs sovereign will
The clouds you so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings on your head
But trust Him for His grace
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face
Unfolding every hour
The bud may have a bitter taste
But sweet will be the flower
God is His own interpreter
And He will make it plain

The music had stopped
And the lights had gone out
Yet I lingered long after the song:
In the stillness I heard
God's encouraging word
"I've been with you all the day long."
The sweet voice of the Master had calmed me
My day had been fraught with despair:
As I sat there in deep contemplation
I knew that the Lord had been there.

Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND, even if it means sending it back to the person who sent it to you. If it comes back to you, then you'll know you have a circle of friends.

Toby Mac has posted some very profound truths/memes since the tragic passing of his son...in the prime of his life.
I must confess...it is difficult to remain quiet...even when (you know) you're right.
I'm working on it!
