Famous Quotes by C.S. Lewis in Pictures

Famous Quotes by C.S. Lewis in Pictures

I had to look up who this famous guy was. C.S. Lewis- I love his quotes. He was a friend of  J. R. R. Tolkien and taught at Oxford University.

According to Wikipedia:

Clive Staples Lewis (29 November 1898 – 22 November 1963) was a British novelist, poet, academic, medievalist, literary critic, essayist, lay theologian, broadcaster, lecturer, and Christian apologist. He held academic positions at both Oxford University (Magdalen College, 1925–1954) and Cambridge University (Magdalene College, 1954–1963). He is best known for his works of fiction, especially The Screwtape LettersThe Chronicles of Narnia, and The Space Trilogy, and for his non-fiction Christian apologetics, such as Mere ChristianityMiracles, and The Problem of Pain.

Lewis and fellow novelist J. R. R. Tolkien were close friends. They both served on the English faculty at Oxford University, and were active in the informal Oxford literary group known as the Inklings. According to Lewis’s memoir Surprised by Joy, he was baptised in the Church of Ireland, but fell away from his faith during adolescence. Lewis returned to Anglicanism at the age of 32, owing to the influence of Tolkien and other friends, and he became an “ordinary layman of the Church of England”. Lewis’s faith profoundly affected his work, and his wartime radio broadcasts on the subject of Christianity brought him wide acclaim.

Lewis wrote more than 30 books, which have been translated into more than 30 languages and have sold millions of copies. The books that make up The Chronicles of Narnia have sold the most and have been popularised on stage, TV, radio, and cinema. His philosophical writings are widely cited by Christian apologetics from many denominations.

So I made a video of some of my favorite quotes by C.S. Lewis:

Christmas Video

Here is the Word that our Pastors Mike Batinich and Jeff Hanson shared with us this past Sunday at Janesville Apostolic Ministries in Janesville, WI.

I pray you have a wonderful day celebrating the birth of Jesus! Merry Christmas! Diana

“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.” (John 3:16-18 MSG)

The Other Side of Fear

I have heard it said that everything we want is on the other side of fear.  Here is one of the videos I made with words of wisdom to get to the other side of fear.

Blessings, Diana

This is My Wish; Peace on Earth

 

THIS IS MY WISH
By Jordin Sparks

This is my wish
My wish for the world
That peace would find its way
To every boy and girl

This is the time
The time for harmony
Let love be the song
That everybody sings

Fill the air with joyful noise
Ring the bells and raise your voice
Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth
Lift your light
Let it shine
Shine, shine, shine
Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth

I hear the sweetest sound
The sound of hope to come
Together we can bring
Good will to everyone

Fill the air with joyful noise
Ring the bells and raise your voice
Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth
Lift your light
Let it shine
Shine, shine, shine
Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Fill the air with joyful noise
Ring the bells and raise your voice
Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth
Lift your light
Let it shine
Shine, shine, shine
Let there be peace on earth
Let there be peace on earth

Let there be peace on earth

Hold On

Here is a great video and song by 3 of my friends from Broadjam: Dianne MacAdam, Nathaniel Jones, and Peter Olach (their links are below)  – Awesome song and video! I need to remember this – HOLD ON!

HOLD ON

I’m tired of pulling weeds
I’ve been here on my knees
But they keep coming back (they keep coming back)

No matter how I try
To light my darkened sky
It always turns to black (it always turns to black)

I need to get away
From all these debts to pay
I’m living in the red (so tired of this debt)

Fingers about to break
Can’t seem to cure this ache
I’m clinging to the ledge (don’t know if I can)

It’s all I can do
To Hold On

And I can hear the train
Making its way again
Somehow the steel on steel (sounds like a promise)

I climb on board the car
Nothing but my guitar
And try to lose the fear (and leave the darkness)

I’m leaving all I know
I’m going with the flow
And pray my soul’s fulfilled (I’m leaving all I know)

The only way to see
If this is right for me
Is to leave the status quo (I’m leaving all I know)

It’s all I can do
To Hold On

You’re battered, bruised and scarred
This life can be so hard
You must remember Who You Are

Take the time to breathe
The water will recede and
Find a way to stop the bleeding
Hold On
Hold on

I Can’t Go Wrong

“I Can’t Go Wrong”  by Phillip Phillips

 

I’ve seen the lights come from the flashes in the dark
I feel like a blind man trying to make a start
And I don’t know, no I don’t know
Where I’m gonna go

I’ve seen the sun come up a mile from the ground
Flew back the other way and saw it go back down
I know the days changed but always seem the same
I’ll take the best of what I can from my mistakes
And now I know, now I know

I can’t go wrong, as long as I remember where I’m from
Hold my head up just to keep it clear
I want a chance just to face my fear, face my fear

Nevermind all the times I just couldn’t wait
I cant remember when it all began to change
Watching the grass grow and die from summer to fall
It’s funny how the year passes by and you don’t notice at all
I know, I know

I can’t go wrong, as long as I remember where I’m from
Hold my head up just to keep it clear
I want a chance just to face my fear, face my fear

I can’t go wrong, as long as I remember where I’m from
Hold my head up just to keep it clear
I want a chance just to face my fear, face my fear

I can’t go wrong, as long as I remember where I’m from
Hold my head up just to keep it clear
I want a chance just to face my fear, face my fear

When Death Dies

“When Death Dies”

by Gungor

Like the waters flooding the desert
Like the sunrise showing all things

Where it comes flowers grow
Lions sleep, gravestones roll

Where death dies all things live
Where it comes poor men feast
Kings fall down to their knees
When death dies all things live
All things live

Like a woman searching and finding love
Like an ocean buried and bursting forth

Where it comes flowers grow
Lions sleep, gravestones roll

Where death dies all things come alive
Where it comes water’s clean
Children fed
All believe
When death dies all things live
All things live

water2

There is a nice symmetry in this: Death initially came by a man, and resurrection from death came by a man. Everybody dies in Adam; everybody comes alive in Christ. But we have to wait our turn: Christ is first, then those with him at his Coming, the grand consummation when, after crushing the opposition, he hands over his kingdom to God the Father. He won’t let up until the last enemy is down—and the very last enemy is death! (1 Corinthians 15:21-26 MSG)

Amazing Lightning Video

Amazing Lightning Storm in

Southern Wisconsin on July 22, 2013.

This happened last night, right above our house in WI.  Yep, God’s talking.  I’m listening…

Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?  (Job 37:15 NIV)
He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy, with great bolts of lightning he routed them. (Psalm 18:14 NIV)
The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning. (Psalm 29:7 NIV)
Send forth lightning and scatter the enemy; shoot your arrows and rout them. (Psalm 144:6 NIV)
