Need an Inspiring Word?

Sometimes there are authors that just melt my heart. Max Lucado is one of my fav’s. I haven’t read everything He has written, but a few and I love how he brings light to the Word and helps me see things differently.  Here are a few of his words that blessed me today.  Happy Monday!

“The past does not have to be your prison. You have a voice in your destiny. You have a say in your life. You have a choice in the path you take.”
― Max LucadoWhen God Whispers Your Name

“Our Savior kneels down and gazes upon the darkest acts of our lives. But rather than recoil in horror, he reaches out in kindness and says, “I can clean that if you want.” And from the basin of his grace, he scoops a palm full of mercy and washes away our sin.”
― Max LucadoJust Like Jesus

“Feed your fears and your faith will starve. Feed your faith, and your fears will.”
― Max LucadoFearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear

“Let God have you, and let God love you – and don’t be surprised if your heart begins to hear music you’ve never heard and your feet learn to dance as never before.”
― Max Lucado

“We see a hearse; we think sorrow. We see a grave; we think despair. We hear of a death; we think of a loss. Not so in heaven. When heaven sees a breathless body, it sees the vacated cocoon & the liberated butterfly.”

“The Bible is the story of two gardens: Eden and Gethsemane. In the first, Adam took a fall. In the second, Jesus took a stand. In the first, God sought Adam. In the second, Jesus sought God. In Eden, Adam hid from God. In Gethsemane, Jesus emerged from the tomb. In Eden, Satan led Adam to a tree that led to his death. From Gethsemane, Jesus went to a tree that led to our life.”
― Max Lucado

“He saw you cast into a river of life you didn’t request. He saw you betrayed by those you love. He saw you with a body that gets sick and a heart that grows weak. He saw you in your own garden of gnarled trees and sleeping friends. He saw you staring into the pit of your own failures and the mouth of your own grave. He saw you in your own garden of Gethsemane and he didn’t want you to be alone … He would rather go to hell for you than to heaven without you.”
― Max Lucado

“When God looks at you, he doesn’t see you; he sees the One who surrounds you. That means that failure is not a concern for you. Your victory is secure.”
― Max LucadoGrace for the Moment

“God sees us with the eyes of a Father. He sees our defects, errors and blemishes. But He also sees our value.”
― Max Lucado
