Think About It ~ Quotes for a Wednesday

The Matrix VS The Real World

It's a "cold and dreary" sort of Wednesday. The sort of Wednesday where pensive clouds and water droplets breathe almost imperceptibly in the stillness. The sort of Wednesday where "gloomy" lends a beautiful, cosy sensibility to the afternoon. The sort of Wednesday that makes you happy to pull on an extra sweater, steep a mug of tea, and just ponder life. My ponderings today focus mostly around a series of quotes I've been reading this week...
"We are Americans. We must not allow, nor shall we tolerate, the actions of criminals, no matter how heinous the crimes, to prompt politicians to enact laws that will infringe upon the liberties of responsible citizens who have broken no laws." - Tim Mueller

"Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;" - I Peter 1:13

"I was doing the wrong of never wanting or trying to be better. And now I see that I have been letting things go as they would for a long time. Whatever came into my head I did, and whatever didn't come into my head I didn't do." - Curdie from The Princess and Curdie

"It is but a small thing for Me, your God, to help you. Consider what I have done already. What! Not help you? Why, I bought you with My blood. What! Not help you? I have died for you; and if I have done the greater, will I not do the less? Help you! It is the least thing I will ever do for you; I have done more and will do more....In helping you, I am giving you what I have bought for you already." - What? Not Help You!

"Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass." - Psalm 37:5
What are you pondering today?

I'm pondering, as I often do, about suffering. I recently saw my friend get hit hard with something and then this morning I saw him get miraculously relieved of it. It's hard to grasp sometimes that God has a time-limit on everything. Not a minute less, not a minute longer.
