There was a man who walked on water; He came to set the people free. He was the ultimate example of what love could truly be; ‘cause His love was His life and he gave it away.
You gotta give it away.” —Michael W. Smith, Give It Away
“When you say a situation or a person is hopeless, you are slamming the door in the face of God.” —Charles L. Allen
As most of you have noticed, I like quotes. Like, I really like them. Quotes, lyrics, short poems. I love ‘em all.
I read a quote and most of the time, I say, “Wow, I really like that one, so I save it in a word document on my laptop.” And, of course, I post many quotes on here.
Tonight, I read the quote at the top of this post. Often, I think about what a quote is saying before I decide whether or not I like it. This particular quote really got me thinking.
How often have I said the word “hopeless” in my life? Too many times to count, sadly. “This is hopeless,” “That is hopeless,” “That person’s hopeless, “This is a hopeless case.”
The more I thought about it, the more it saddened me. As a Christian, I have hope. Abundantly.
I need to stop slamming doors in God’s face by thinking everything is hopeless.
