faith

A Quote by Bradford torrey on faith, goals, god, heart, and rest

Not so in haste, my heart! Have faith in God and wait; Although he linger long, He never comes too late. He never comes too late, He knoweth what is best: Vex not thyself in vain; Until he cometh, rest. Until he cometh, rest. Nor grudge the hours that roll: The feet that wait for God Are soonest at the goal. Are soonest at the goal. That is not gained by speed; Then hold thee still, my heart, For I shall wait his lead.

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on courage, errors, faith, time, and truth

What a wonderful time to be young. You will see events in your lifetime that will test your courage and extend your faith. If you will face the sunlight of truth, the shadows of discouragement and sin and error will fall behind you. You must never give up!

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on faith, miracles, patience, and people

Some people think a miracle is only a miracle if it happens instantaneously, but miracles can grow slowly and patience and faith can compel things to happen that otherwise never would have come to pass.

A Quote by Blaise Pascal on boasts, books, effort, faith, men, reading, and truth

[Unbelievers] think they have made great efforts to get at the truth when they have spent a few hours in reading some book out of Holy Scripture, and have questioned some cleric about the truths of the faith. After that, they boast that they have searched in books and among men in vain.

A Quote by Blaise Pascal on faith and senses

Faith certainly tells us what the senses do not, but not the contrary of what they see; it is above, not against them.

A Quote by Blaise Pascal on faith, guidance, limits, and reason

Faith is a sounder guide than reason. Reason can only go so far, but faith has no limits.

A Quote by Bishop Lancelot Andrewes on belief, christ, faith, fatherhood, god, goodness, grace, jesus, life, sons, and world

FAITH Coming unto God, I believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him: I know that my Redeemer liveth; that He is the Christ the Son of the Living God; that He is indeed the Saviour of the world; that He came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. Through the grace of Jesus Christ we believe that we shall be saved even as our fathers withal. I believe verily to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

THANKSGIVING O my Lord, my Lord, I thank Thee for that I am, that I am alive, that I am rational: for nurture, preservation, governance: for education, citizenship, religion: for Thy gifts of grace, nature, estate: for redemption, regeneration, instruction: for calling, recalling, further calling manifold: for forbearance, longsuffering, long longsuffering towards me, many times, many years, until now: for all good offices I have received, good speed I have gotten: for any good thing done: for the use of things present, thy promise and my hope touching the fruition of the good things to come: for my parents honest and good, teachers gentle, benefactors always to be had in remembrance, colleagues likeminded, hearers attentive, friends sincere, retainers faithful: for all who have stood me in good stead by their writings, their sermons, conversations, prayers, examples, rebukes, wrongs: for these things and all other, which I wot of, which I wot not of, open and secret, things I remember, things I have forgotten withal, things done to me after my will or yet against my will, I confess to Thee and bless Thee and give thanks unto Thee, and I will confess and bless and give thanks to Thee all the days of my life. What thanks can I render to God again for all the benefits that He hath done unto me?

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on birth, death, difficulty, eternity, faith, feeling, goals, good, love, meditation, mind, reality, senses, serenity, thought, work, worship, yoga, and path

Arguna: Of those steadfast devotees who love you and those who seek you as the eternal formless Reality, who are the more established in yoga? Krishna: Those who set their hearts on me and worship me with unfailing devotion and faith are more established in yoga. As for those who seek the transcendental Reality, without name, without form, contemplating the Unmanifested, beyond the reach of thought and of feeling, with their senses subdued and mind serene and striving for the good of all beings, they too will verily come unto me. Yet hazardous and slow is the path to the Unrevealed, difficult for physical man to tread. But they for whom I am the supreme goal, who do all work renouncing self for me and meditate on me with single-hearted devotion, these I will swiftly rescue from the fragment's cycle of birth and death, for their consciousness has entered into me.

A Quote by Beverly Enderby Kimzey on colors, conviction, faith, god, heart, home, rest, sorrow, and trust

Why do you fret for tomorrow? Why are you heavy with care Wrapping your heart in sorrow, A garment too somber to wear? Faith has a brighter color Home has a rainbow hue And trust links them both together In a background of heavenly blue. You can weave these lovely colors Into a garment so light It will penetrate every shadow And shine through the darkest night. God will take care of tomorrow With him each tomorrow must rest - And we hold this a sure conviction When we give each today our best!
