gospel quotes

It is essential to be alone with God, waiting at His door, hearkening for His voice, lingering in the Scripture. No number of Christian meetings, no amount of Christian activity, can compensate for the neglect of this still hour.”
The life around us, in this age, is preeminently one of rush and effort. It is the age of the instant this and instant that.” This feverish haste threatens the life of devotion to Christ… We must beware that we do not substitute Christian activities for the authentic relationship with Christ. Mary understood this and chose to be at Jesus’ feet.
There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.“ Luke 10:42

Yet I still dare to hope
  when I remember this:
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
  His mercies never cease.
—  ​Lamentations 3:21-22 (NLT)
