Some Encouraging Thoughts from Johny (Late John George Samuel)


You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair. (John. 14:1-2; Prov. 17:22; Ps. 37:4)
Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do. (Matt. 23:14; Luke. 17:19; Mark. 5:19)
Christ seeks not the circumference of our life, but its very centre. (Prov. 23:26; 1 Cor. 6:17; Gal. 5:24)
God’s Sufficiency

Patience is enjoying the journey. It’s not climbing the mountain to get to the top; it’s climbing the mountain to enjoy the climb. Enjoy the process of your own life. (1 Pet. 5:7; Ps. 37:5; 55:22)
We may not always understand God’s ways, but He will illumine our path and prove to be a faithful guide. (Nah 1:3; Ps. 18:20; 32:8)
We need not fear the perils AROUND us as long as the eye of the Lord is UPON us. (Ps. 34:15; 32:8; 2 Chr. 16:9)
God’s Intervention

When God is going to do something wonderful, He begins with a difficulty. If He is going to do something really wonderful, He begins with an impossibility. (1 Thess. 5:18; Heb. 13:15; Job. 1:21)
God may not give us an easy journey to the Promised Land, but He will give us a safe one. (Gal. 3:13; Rom. 6:18; Ps. 59:15)

The world may ask you to hit-back and get it out of your system, but God asks you to sit-back and get Him into your system, allowing Him to handle things. (James. 5:10; Heb. 10:36; 5:8, 9)
