"HE MUST INCREASE, I MUST DECREASE" "It is a tremendous freedom to get rid of all self-consideration and learn to care about only one thing - the relationship between Christ and ourselves." - Leslie Ludy, Captivating Selflessness ♥ on the way to Taal Volcano's zenith, February 14, 2010

“HE MUST INCREASE, I MUST DECREASE” “It is a tremendous freedom to get rid of all self-consideration and learn to care about only one thing – the relationship between Christ and ourselves.” – Leslie Ludy, Captivating Selflessness ♥ on the way to Taal Volcano’s zenith, February 14, 2010

“I choose not to fear life but to live it. I look back not to lament but to remember. I hold on not because I’m incapable, but because I am wise. I look at barriers as movable, problems as solvable, heartache as healable, and disappointment as temporary. It is not confidence in myself that gives me hope; it is Christ in me that is my hope. The experiences I’ve had were not to break me but to make me. I am at peace because I know who I am. If, in the midst of your circumstances you can see God, you are on your way to wholeness.” -John Lumacang in his biography, “Abandoned but not Alone”

“Man can shape circumstances, but circumstances should not be allowed to shape the man. We should seize upon circumstances as instruments by which to work. We are to master them, but should not permit them to master us.” – Messages to the Young People, Ellen G. White

“God has surrounded us with nature’s beautiful scenery to attract and interest the mind. It is His design that we should associate the glories of nature with His character. If we faithfully study the book of nature, we shall find it a fruitful source for contemplating the infinite love and power of God. . . trace the infinite love and power of God in the surpassing beauties seen in the heavens….The heart is quickened, and throbs with new and deeper love, mingled with awe and reverence, as we contemplate God in nature.” (My Life Today 294)

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, but our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And we all let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same as we are liberated from our own fear. Our presence automatically liberate others.” – former juvenile delinquent (student/basketball player) to COACH CARTER

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.” -Helen Keller

“Our greatest danger in life is in permitting the urgent things to crowd out the important.” – Charles E. Hummel
